the Little League World Series (Go Lake Oswego!) in HD on ESPN and the teams with the 2 best records in MLB play each other IN SD?????? The Angels are playing the Red Sox in a Day/Night doubleheader and both games were SD!

Why oh why can't FSN get an HD truck to Boston for this series? Bostonians get it in HD! The Angels are in the 2nd largest market in the country and FSN continually runs commercials about FSN HD (there is one on right now) and to contact my provider. I know that the full time version will be here in a few weeks, but it wouldn't matter because FSN West has SD cameras there! I seriously don't understand.

Oh wait, now I do. Fox is showing a meaningless preseason game. I feel much better now, knowing that Jets and Vikings fans can watch players they don't know and won't see in the regular season play in stunning 720p High Definition.

The FCC made analog tuners illegal. How about making cameras with less than 1280x720 progressive recording resolution illegal as well?

Game is on 94 in HD for those allowed to view NESN. You are probably blacked out.

The FOX NFL game has zero to do with FSN baseball in HD. Few RSNs do road games in HD this year. NESN and YES are known exceptions.

I don't know that it's going to take administrative action to make that happen.. with the competition for your dollar more and more sports are going to HD anyway.

I am very annoyed at the amount of big games that are not being shown in HD

I really, really hope the new sats allow DirecTV to show more HD games next year

Agreed to the first point (with apologies to fans of those teams, why Giants/Marlins yesterday afternoon, for example? There are pennant races going on!).

As to the second, I expect to see all available HD games next year, and will be very disappointed if that isn't the case.

This isn't entirely true. I'm allowed to view NESN, I have HD, and watch all the Sox games on 623.

However, when they are on 94 or 95, I'm blacked out.

I get every Yankees and Mets game in HD; even though I am closer to Boston.

Thankfully, this will all end before the season is over...

Thank You. Yanks/Tigers were on along with Angels/Red Sox...and we are getting White Sox/Mariners and Giants/Marlins? Why? :nono2:

Yes. I was referring to EI customers out of market. Wasn't specific enough.
