Hmm wierd.... ive heard other saying similar stuff about CBS sunday night programming.... CBS really needs to get that timeshifting equipment ordered.

Next weeks cold case looks pretty good too, hopefully the games wont run late. (even though in the past when they have run alte theres no problems )

KHOU switched to HD for the movie and KBTX still hasnt.

Anybody else just see that sportscenter commerical about broadcasting HD? That was damn funny. (The starwars one)

BTW anybody been reading about that DBS and locals legislation passed? Should be interesting to see what happens because i keep hearing that VOOM is going after adding Green Bay HD channels for all subs not in the green bay area (dont know if this is going to happen but ive heard it many times and is interesting)... seems the legislation would make this possible, not to mention they would add all the stations (wb and upn included), which is something i havent heard E*or D* mention.

Good for Voom. The more HD competition there is out there, the better for us.

Right now it looks like 2005 will be an interesting year for HD providers. Well at least DirecTV and Voom. Dish appears to be a non-player right now.

Each show will be on a 24 hour loop on its own channel.

Awesome!

I'm just hoping D* fixes the HDMI/DVI issue with the HDTivos. That is kind of holding me off from purchasing one.

If VOOM is able to give HD locals and a DVR, I may consider switching though.

Anyone else watch Men in Black 2 on Fox? I didn't have one breakup on KRIV. It's even working this morning. I'm curious to see how Ice Age looks in HD. Shrek is on NBC too.

Somehow I'm still having problems with KAMU. Not sure why either.

As for the Aggies... good season, bad game. Let's hope ESPN shows the Holiday in HD. That looks like the bowl we'll be going to.

I know that we dont have a chance on CBS and PBS but what about the others? Also what about WB/UPN since those arent on the satellite in HD but what about the SD versions (im assuming we will qualify simply because there arent any stations we can receive)

I've been watching the ESPN-HD schedule for some time hoping for the Holiday Bowl - just the Las Vegas Bowl so far. I did notice that they have an HD presentation of the Junction Boys scheduled for the Jan 6th.

isnt the chance of the holiday bowl in HD almost impossible? I would have though if ESPN was planning on broadcasting it they would have added it to the "online" schedule of HD programs by now.

Well I picked up my HD-DVR from Cox this morning. Although the CSR said I was the first one for her to handle, it was fairly painless (took about 7 minutes). Anyway, it responds ALOT better than my dad's scientific atlanta that he has through Time Warner. I noticed it also responds faster than my regular HD box. The menus are much more attractive than normal cox menus. Anyway, props to Cox for delivering a nice HD DVR to a small market area like BCS. After all, Corpus Christi has a population of about 300,000 with time warner and they just got theirs last month. Ishman is supposed to post a good review later with pics, so I won't go too much into detail.

Congrats on the score, Munky!! I think you will love it.
On another topic, D* had the Hornets/Lakers game on channel 90 last night in HD, and I think there will be another game tonight and Wed. night.

I have to agree with Munky, I've really been enjoying it. I wrote a full review of the box, but need to complete it with some screenshots. Hopefully, I'll get it posted here soon.. there is just this little thing about being lazy.

And not to mention that little thing called work getting in the way. Just make sure no outside objects make it into those screenshots. These guys are brutal.

Hey jag, I guess I was just being optimistic about the Holiday Bowl. I was really hoping ESPN would do all or most of the Big XII bowl games in HD, but it doesn't look like it is going to happen. I just wanted a chance for the Ags to redeem themselves in HD.

After the way the first one went I hope we dont see them again in HD

If you are just now applying for waivers, you won't get any at all. Now that locals are up (except for ABC), none of the stations are granting them. There might be rare exceptions to this, but I have now heard from two separate D* newbies that the traditional NBC and ABC waivers that were being granted no longer are. (CBS, PBS and Fox never were)

Jag, are you talking about distant feeds going up on V*? Perhaps NBC and ABC would still grant waivers for V* users since they have no locals up on their sat for the area. But in that case, I think ABC might still say no.

yes as part of the 70 channels in march.... rumored to be CBS/ABC/NBC/FOX/UPN/WB

plus the fox sports nets (they have to get to 70 somehow )

I would think I would qualify for UPN/WB automatically, but i guess well have to wait and see.

I don't know about WB. KYLE is a FOX/WB affiliate. I'm not sure how that works.
