Why can't CBS and Fox brodcast all there games in HD for SuperFan! Where are the different camera angles promised by Super Fan as part of interactive features when Super Fan first came out? Why can't there be a HD game mix? These are the things that piss me off about Direct TV 's SuperFan packakage!

CBS is the biggest problem. They only do 3 games in HD every week. They decided to spend their money on James Brown and the pregame show. What a waste. Hopefully next year most of the games are in HD. I don't think they care about superfan that much compared to overall viewer ratings. Starting this sunday I can record 6 HD channels at once. I catch the other games on the shorts. I wish those were HD also.

Yeah CBS pisses me off every game should be in HD. But I noticed something funnny in week one on FOX the Niners at Cards game was not in HD on SuperFan but late in the game I switched over to another Superfan HD channel and it was airing the OT on FOX and they shot over to the Niners at Cards game and it was in HD.I called Direct Tv and they said some crap about they can only show what ever games FOX CBS and the NFL tell them they can. Anyone know if this is true?

Yes that is true. Check out this website. http://www.gribblenation.net/nflmaps/ At the bottom they explain all the blackout rules etc. The best part is at the top about every wednesday night they show which parts of the country get what games on the local feeds. This site shows what sports are in true HD. http://www.hdsportsguide.com/ And this guy shows us superfans what channels all the games are on. http://www.dbstalk.c...ead.php?t=71227 He posted this on monday. I don't think D* has any say or influence on what games are shown in HD. All I know is the AFC is getting screwed by CBS.

Tomorrow D* is installing the 5 lnb dish and the HR20 DVR for me. With this and my HR10-250 and 2 E* VIP622 DVR's I'll be able to record 6 of the 7 sunday morning games broadcasted in HD. By next fall CBS will probably have 6 HD games every week like FOX. By then i'm getting 1 more HR20. You can tell I love NFL in HD. Expensive though but not as much as the Samsung 71" DLP tv I want ($4000).

Cash. Costs money to have all those HD cameras, HD trucks, etc to produce them. CBS just hasn't put the resources into it yet.
