"Full" HD here in Minnesota (as full as NBC HD can be with their wasted bandwidth on WeatherPlus+ :rolleyes: ).

Sounds like an affiliate problem. Do you have severe weather this evening (that might cause a scroll/insert that in SD)?

syphix are you using OTA or D*?? Why does the NFL even give them any kind of contract. NBC is turning into the EA of tv

The local NBC channel in Phoenix is in HD. Complain to your local NBC station.

D*...too far away for OTA.

The issue you are/were dealing with was likely an affiliate issue, not a network issue. Football on NBC for me (on KARE-DT) has been HD from the start tonight. Not the best HD thanks to their sub-channel....but "HD". You would think that they could at least just turn off the WeatherPlus+ channel during their one football game a week...:rolleyes:

Still crap in NJ. But the colors on the little peacock in the lower left corner are bright and sharp. Damn you NBC

I'm watching it over the air here near chicago. It looks really soft. Lacks POP.

Hmmm!? I wonder if I can reach the Rockford HD channel from here.

Worth a try.

ROFLOL. the HD Commercial Looks better than the game on 5-1. How funny!

That's not D*'s fault...sports on NBC looks terrible because they waste bandwidth on their subchannel, WeatherPlus+.

The college game on ESPN is much sharper. Sound is better too.

Lots of blocking on NBC over D*. I haven't tried OTA yet. Raoul is pretty close to his NBC affiliate's antenna so his OTA should be good.

I am watching D* and the sound is wierd. Some crackling/rain sound in my rear and back channels. No it is not my speakers, at least it better not be for what I paid.
