(I think this belongs here 'cos it's very old news)
I just came across this old DirecTV press release for three cocerts, two in HD. http://www.directv.com/press/pressde...12,316,00.html

Man, I really wish they'd repeat those, specially the Frampton concert. Did anyone here see those? Were they good? Was Barry pallatable when in HD, cos I find myself enjoying a whole lot of stuff when in HD that I wouldn't normally like.

The quality of these and all of DirecTvs HD Concerts was fantastic, Im really surprised they dont repeat them about once a month.

These definately had the "window effect +" including Yes, Mannilow, Frampton ( probably the worst because of its orange hue), Stone Temple Pilots.

When I saw reviews of Springsteens Concert coming back as good ( best they had ever seen?) I had too wonder what other HD concerts they had seen because Springsteens looked like standard definition when compared to the 199 concerts

In another thread one of the senior DirecTV execs seemed to be clueless about DTV programming scheduling in HD that was going on, the forum member concerned seems to have actually started the ball rolling by clueing her in. I suspect that these concerts aren't being shown simply because no one ta DirecTV is really interested in HD programming per se. I really think that attitude could be changing, so it would be wonderful to have the opprtunity to see these. Of course, other factors such as broadcasting rights/costs could play a big factor.

It was seeing the window effect of the Frampton concert in the demo loop in GG on a well setup Mits that hooked me on HD... I was absolutely gobsmacked when I saw it. Since then, the material I've seen on PBS has also blown me away.

Well, I guess this question has been talked to death in another thread in the main HD forum, but I will say that I agree with you 100%; on my setup at least, the springsteen concert PQ didn't come close to the Frampton concert PQ.

Kipp;
I agree; the concerts I've seen in HD have been stunning. It's the same kind of feeling you have when you are actually there; you find yourself more likely to watch a concert in HD than if it were in SD (but I guess that's probably true for most HD entertainment except Y&R)
