    I suppose, but it was strange that is was a D* commercial. It's like they cut into the feed themselves. Also there's been strange black outs that last for 25 seconds or so during some commercial strings. Oh well hopefully they can get it all fixed before the season starts..

    Are you watching the game on 206 or 73? I was seeing the same black outs twice during commercial breaks on 206 but when I switched to 73 a commercial was playing (and when I switched back 206 still had a black screen)....strange

    Was it just me or did the PQ on 206 look great? Better than last year?

    Yeah, I remember seeing stuff like this during preseason last year on a few games. I am sure it will be corrected by the time the real games start!

    Go Rodgers!

    ESPN HD used to be awful. The MPEG4 makes a huge difference. It looked great last night.

    I saw that view once in person...minus the fisheye wide angle, of course. :D

    You have to climb a metal step-rail combo to get up there...and there's a "crowsnest" kinda platform up there for the camera and cameraguy.

    There are 3 of those along the top of Lambeau.

    The PQ looked great. Too bad Kornholio couldn't shut his gaping hole about Favre..:rolleyes:
