I'm not real happy with KRIVs method of switching from network HD to local SD (upconvert to HD). Right now, I think they're having to do it manually and it's no good. In fact, for abou 3 minutes, the game was in 4:3 SD with side bars.
Also, around that same time, they had such a bad glitch, my Mits TV had to literally REBOOT.
I can't do or see anything while the TV is rebooting. So I missed about a minute and a half of the game.
"So what?" you might say. I'm one of those baseball fans that actually understands that it's more of a psychological game than a physical game. 9 times out of 10 I can tell you what the next pitch is going to be. Unless Qualls is pitching. And then, nobody knows what the next pitch is going to be. Not even Qualls.
So anyhow, I'm not one of those who has the game on while I piddle around in the kitchen or flip back and forth to the debate. I watch every pitch and try to figure out what the pitcher, catcher, batter, base runners, infielders, and outfielders are thinking for every pitch!
Other than that, the game looked GREAT in HD. Now, if we could only get better pitching. Unfortunately, I don't have much faith in the 'Stros again tonight.
