    You're telling me.....

    Enough of our "favorite shows" from last season came back, that coupled with the new shows that seem to be some new "favorites......I had to order a second HD-DVR this week along with a Whole Home install.....

    Maybe now my wife will quit slapping me on the back of the head every time the DVR says it's already recording two shows and won't record another.....

    Pretty much. This thread moves too fast for my tastes for me to try to have an actual conversation in it.

    The only other HD channels I really want aside from BBCA and the CW are my locals in HD.

    I would like ESPN2Go. That way I can watch on my iPad or iPhone when not home.

    ...- .....
    That is not an HD sat broadcast. That request doesn't belong here.

    ;) Two things I will share:

    1) I appreciate the addition from DirecTV of AMC HD, and am on a bit of a break (so to speak) from this "Anticipation." I still think a good 15 to 20 non-premium ["basic"] programmers, carried only in SD, should be brought in in HD by DirecTV. (That's before the next satellite launch.) But, again with the word break, I am in a better mood since AMC HD was finally added Sept. 9.

    2) My MLB home team, Detroit Tigers, will be in the postseason, which begins this coming Friday, Sept. 30. (Regular-season games conclude after this coming Wednesday, Sept. 28.) I am proud and thrilled Detroit Tigers won their first-ever AL Central title (their last division win, before expansion when they were in the AL East, was in 1987), and they became the first franchise to clinch their division Sept. 16. The following day, Philadelphia Phillies won their fifth straight NL East division title. Sept. 21 saw New York Yankees win the AL East. And this last Friday, Sept. 23, saw not one more nor two more but all remaining three divisions clinched: Milwaukee Brewers (NL Central; first division victory since their [AL] pennant-winning 1982); Arizona Diamondbacks (NL West); and Texas Rangers (one year after their first pennant win, for Season #50, having topped the AL West). So, I'm looking forward to the postseason (division series games will be on TBS, and in HD!). But while the division winners have become established, we MLB viewers are awaiting the wild cards.


    I do like what's being expressed here (and with the above poster's quote): Add basic HD programming — long overdue — and you may get the "whiners" to take a chill pill. (Or two. Or three. Or ….) :grin:

    1. 15-20 before D14 is probably unlikely. I'm thinking more like 5-10 if we're lucky, but who knows what tricks D* has up their sleeve.

    2. Yeah go Tigers!!!!!!!! Although I don't see why you're excited about the playoffs being in HD, all Tigers games have been in HD all season since FSD got all new equipment last year.

    With AMC HD being added, the number of posts here seems to have decreased by 90% or more. So, to get things started, perhaps we ought to start demanding AMC in SuperHD! !Devil_lol

    When will DirecTV add it in SuperHD?!?

    I don't intend to start complaining but I would like those 5 in HD, in that order priority-wise. I cannot think of anything else that I would really care to see after those additions.

    Everyone knows DirecTV will go out of business unless RFD HD is added.

    We went 28 hours between posts. Has to be a record.
