I believe they have for the last couple of years. The highlights I've seen of past SD widescreen FOX NFL games look good, but not HD.

IIRC, some of the non-HD games looked a lot better (component) than others (composite). Not sure what the plan is this year.

You should probably apologize more to Oakland fans. Not only is the game in SD, it's likely not to sell out because of the match up, which means no local TV.

Well if they can't see it in Oakland I'm sure it won't matter to them that it's only in SD.

It'll sell out. It's the first game of the season...

No, we are talking about Week 3. Oakland opens at home this Sunday against Detroit which is a sell out. Oakland hosting in wk 3 Cleveland is almost guaranteed to NOT sell out. Oakland has a tough time selling out because of "Mount Davis," additional horrible seats Al Davis added to the Oakland Coliseum.

My apologies. Didn't read the entire post.

Why is it that the Raiders ALWAYS seem to play Cleveland at home?

I think the NFL likes to screw over the Raiders because I think NFL doesn't care too much for Al Davis (and isn't worried about the lost revenue of Raiders blackouts).

This season, for example, the Raiders have 5 home games against non-division opponents.
Detroit, Cleveland, Houston, Chicago, and Indy

Three of those are historically bad teams. It makes sense for the Raiders to play them considering their horrid record last year, but 3 out of 5 at home is not good for a team that can't sell out. I think the NFL purposely gave them Detroit to open the season because it will sell out no matter what. Cleveland and Houston are likely to be blacked out. Last season Oakland also hosted Cleveland AND Houston, Houston was blacked out while Cleveland barely made it through.

All teams play 5 home games against non-division teams. Those teams are selected based on the scheduling formula that the NFL uses. This year the AFC West will play the NFC North and AFC South. That accounts for all the teams you mention except for Cleveland. Each team then plays one game versus one team from the other two divisions in their conference, and I do believe those teams are based on a formula using the previous year's record. The NFL is not trying to screw over Al Davis with the raiders opponents.

6 game vs your division (3 home-3 away)
4 games vs division in opposite conference (2 home, 2 away - rotates every year - predetermined years in advance)
4 games vs division in same conference (same as above)
2 more games in conference vs other 2 divisions vs teams that finished in the same spot in the standings as your team (1 home, 1 away - also rotates)

Thats it - very simple.... You already know 14 of the 16 games your team will be playing years in advance (until they change the system)

Are you sure the Raiders game is sold out this weekend. It wasn't as of yesterday.

According to local media outlets, you can still buy tickets without having to resort to the resale market, but for NFL purposes, it's a sell out. I think KTVU (local FOX affiliate) and some corporate sponsors had something to do with it.

I used to think they were doing a better job - but this year it looks bad - I think as of now (depending on flex weeks) NYC is missing out on 8 doubleheaders - all in the first 12 weeks....

1 - 2 - 3 - 6 - 8 - 9 - 11 - 12

One should "expect" - in a normal 1 team city - to miss 4 doubleheaders on average (ignoring games on national tv)...
Of the 8 - NYC loses 6 doubleheaders thanks to the Jets - and 2 thanks to the Giants

A good solution is that NY dump one of their teams to LA. Solve everyones problems.

Seeing that both teams are partnering up to spend $1.3 billion on a new stadium that's not going to happen. Didn't CA get it's fill when they stole 2 NY baseball teams?

Local OTA coverage in the home and/or visiting city of NFL games carried nationally on Cable has happened since 1987.
Trying to find the first HD telecast in that situation would be a little harder to figure out.

Miami vs. Washington (the HD broadcast originally scheduled for ch. 723) is now missing. Anyone else know anything about this?

Thanks

Why do so many seem to hate Madden. I don't care about his looks. I don't care about his makeup. I care about his commentary. And I enjoy it. And so does everyone of my football watching friends. He's perfect with Al Michaels. Why do you and so many others not like his commentary? And I don't think his makeup should be a factor in his evaluation.

Check out th first post of this thread that has the Sunday Ticket channel listings. Online guides and on screen electronic guide are often wrong or missing information and change without reason. The channel numbers listed in the first post are from the D* website and should be correct. All the games being produced in HD, including MIA vs WSH will be on Sunday ticket HD.
post #81 of 96
Could someone at least check their listings and see if the game is missing from theirs as well? My concern is that even if the game is still showing at the same time-if my guide doesn't show it then my HR10-250 won't know to start recording it when I am gone.
post #82 of 96
Oh brother...just like 30 secs. ago it switched back again.

Now I just seem like a crazy person...

post #83 of 96
What the?

Now the game is missing again, having been replaced on channel 723 by the game on the 16th between SF and Arizona!

Could someone else please check their on screen guide and see if it is listing what I am currently seeing? I think it is a programming change.

Never trust program listings 100%.....

What you see here is very reliable based on all sorts of "research"

Looks like even the maps have adopted TNT's stretch-o-vision this year.

Guide data for Sunday Ticket is always a rolling target until Sunday morning. Been that way for years.

LOL. They are distorted, but there's no giant Holly Hunter in the corner, so I guess that's a plus.

Three times today I went to channel 701 or 702, it said loading player tracker and my HR20 receiver freezes and I have to reboot it. I still have audio (music) but cannot change channels, no guide. Any ideas?

I've been on the phone with Tech Support with this exact same issue. I have an HR20-700 and was on the phone with them for 30 minutes. It is a known issue with this model, I was told by a supervisor. They told me that they will have it fixed before 1 pm est. I, and many others will be really pissed if this doesn't work today. I can tune the channel but if I switch to any other channel, I get a blank screen. I only have this problem on the ST channels. Only way I could fix it is to bring up the guide, exit back to channel, bring up miniguide with the blue button, then switch to a non-ST channel, get the blank screen and reset my receiver. My non-HD receiver in another room works fine. I am gonna scream if I can't get the games in HD today on my 60". If I have to watch on my POS 20" non HD tv, I will raise hell with them. How can you not be aware of this problem? GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
