It seems like weeks since these teams have played. They should have started this series on Tuesday. I look for a big SA win tonight and take the series in 5.

The odds are severly stacked against the Cavs; I'd still like to see them do some damage. But reality says Spurs probably takes it 4-1.

Definitely an interesting watch. One of the few times you can compare PQ (ABC backhaul) on ESPN/ESPN2 & ABC at the same time. I'm finding the audio on ESPN/ESPN2 to be a bit less compressed and more transparent, though the OTA PQ and ESPN seem to be comparable. Mobile unit is NEP super shooter 25 (Monday Night Football truck).

Watching WEWS-DT, Cleveland via Wide Open West cable and OTA. No subchannels. Viewing on Panny 50PF 1080p plasma.


The main center court camera looks lousy. Out of focus and compression artifacts. A couple of times I rubbed my eyes trying to refocus. Audio stutters every few minutes.


Can we get this on a 1080i network next year? Please?

Unfortunately the sound is nothing to shout about.



I'm watching on TWCNY and as per usual on ABC sporting events I get 2 channel sound. My Denon receiver indicates Dolby Digital and is set up for 5.1 / 7.1 but I'm getting no center and no surrounds.

I've complained about this every week with no answers. NBA on ABC are all done 2.0 while the ads kick in at 5.1.


I don't get it. I hope one of you insiders can shed some light on why this happens.

Watching KITV-DT Honolulu(1 sub-channel).

Center court camera overcompressed, poor contrast.

Court level shots looks good.....this reminds me of a FOX telecast.


My local station doesn't do 5.1, but the overall AQ is good.


For whatever reason Dish was expected to launch the Honolulu HD-LIL today but so far it's a no go..so can't compare OTA vs. DBS.

I'm getting about 10 pixel high black bar across the bottom here in Cleveland. Might be a local issue, our local WEWS-DT has been having equipment problems lately.


My Panny 50PF is set to 1:1 pixel, no overscan.

Watching on WBNS-TV Columbus. Also seeing the horrible quality of that center court camera. I like the cable-cam however, nice touch, though I think if you listen closely you can hear the pulley motors. Sound is horrible.
