If you get FSNBA SD, you will get FSNBA HD.
Wow good job...anyone else with a meter want to report in??
Not seeing much. With nothing hooked up, I get a reading of 6.2 on 103 Lo. I got a reading 6.6 hooked up.
Now I was hooked up on the receiver side of a multiswitch. So there may be more signal coming into the MS. Same meter.
Fox Sports Net has spent a goodly amount of money this year setting up virtually every venue (basketball, baseball, etc.) for HD interconnection via fiber, all routing through the main switcher in Houston, and from there to the cablecos and to both DirecTV and Echostar/Dish.
Most FSN's have done most if not all home (baseball and basketball) games this year in HD, with a few away games as well. The goal of course is to be fully HD next year, the only thing holding it back is of course the few venues that arn't 'wired' for HD cameras and fiber interconnections (now), but will be next year, and the production facilities (graphics overlays and such).
I think that for the next Basketball season (07-08) it may still be in transition, but it will be interesting to note how much of the 'network' is complete, particularly both at the start and toward the end of the season. As far as baseball is concerned, there have been a couple 'west coast' away games (for Seattle) that have been in HD, particularly the LA/Angles (but no A's/Oakland).
Again, things still in transition, but it will be interesting to see as things progress.
My questions stems from noticing how many games were available in HD in the Local market where the game was played. Many times I noticed that a game was available in HD lets say if you lived ion Cleavland. They were able to see the game in HD in Cleveland and the SD feed would be sent back to us in the Bay area.
It seems as though the HD feed was available, just locally. So my next question is this:
Now that D* has the Bandwidth, would they be able to support this for D* customers or would it be based on the station; I.E. FSNBAYHD is shown on Comcast as well as D* . Would it be limited to the lowest capable station or would they be able to split it up so that D* customers get the HD feed and the C* customers only get the SD feed.
Sorry if I confused anyone any more than I did myself trying to word the question.
You are confusing the broadcaster's capabilities with the provider's again. Whether or not FSNBA shows a game in HD has absolutely nothing to do with DirecTV, Comcast, or anyone else. The reason most FSN HD games are only show in HD in the home market is because FSN's master control in Houston doesn't have the capacity to handle the amount of HD feeds that it would have to in order for all games to be HD in all markets. But they're working on it.
Maybe we are slowly seeing signals because the sat is slowly moving to its orbital slot. Hopefully we will know when it is there when the signals get stronger and/or the channels get turned on!!
The only signals D10 should be transmitting during the move is TT&C. They tested the transponders at the test location, but cannot "keep them hot" during the move.
There in NO indication YET that the move to 102.775 has begun. Clearly if the tests, initialization and settings were completed as quickly as they hoped when they requested FCC permission to begin the move on 9-1, we'd have seen some indication of the move by now. Hopefully, we'll see that indication in the new orbital elements from NORAD soon. If not, hopefully whatever testing, calbration and software uploads still have to be completed will not take much longer, and that the satellite will then perform as designed and up to specifications. In any case, they can't move it till they are done, and they can't broadcast until the move. So patience is required.
On the tech thread there's a discussion of what evidence we should get of the commenncement of the final move.

Think that I will spend today updating the actual logo's with HD logo's.
what is that guide I WANT IT ? where is it on the NET?
Those are screen captures from the software used to program a Philips Pronto remote control.
BTW, very nice layout DrZaiusATL.
It looks like directv would have a package that don't include sports I know that is where they make most of their money but some people just don't care for it.
Maybe the 14th will be the day they light 'em up.
when did he post that info? just was wondering....
edit, nevermind, on 9/2 he said that. awesome!
Skeet .. Oh no you didnt!
Just a small correction.... on Sept 03 he made a error in naming Disney, instead of
Discovery....he explained it this way:
Some of you are probably questioning how I could make a mistake by adding Disney to the first wave list at first. Here's how.. I was doing three things at once.. and in a rush I wrote down "DIS" to abbreviate the channel.
The problem is that I don't remember what the DIS was for;
So yes I made a mistake..
DrZaiusATL you need to change your sig. Earl and some other mods decided to limit the size of peoples sig. They want people to list their set up in the member info portion set aside for set ups. Sigs are only suppose to be a couple lines now.
