From what I hear, Fox's 720p from regular old broadcast gives the best picture. So, grab your rabbit ears.

Yay for TiVo!

I love TiVo for backwards reasons today. I get to watch all the commericals, and I don't have to sit through football! Yay!
I started watching at 8:15, and it's 8:45 now-- I am already past the halftime show.

So far, my favorite commerical has been the white cat & the spaghetti sauce. Love the scene where she walks in the door and sees the little bastard covered in red.

Comcast HD worked for me.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I watched on FOX, coverage was good, but since the wife's younger brother is in Advertising I watch the ads. I thought that was one of the better half time shows. It wasn't a bad game either, good napping between commercials

My HD over the air worked fine till the last 2 friggin minutes of the game. Then is started to crap out and I had to switch to old school tv.

ok maybe i didnt make my request totally clear "whats new right?"


what i was asking was, with your differant HD providers, did you all get a FULL screen viewing in H.D., i remember one of my neighbors telling me with his DirecTV he was getting the black boxs on the side, versus Voom i got a full screen viewing in HD with NO black boxs anywhere.

Oh, I forgot how the game defaulted. I think full screen. Depending on the program I sometimes get black bands. I can change it by changing the view on my remote, but the does change the perspective.
