I agree. One you have to think and the other one you don't. Beating yourself is always more difficult than beating your opponents. Can't compare that.


Yeah, but beating your opponent is more fun. Ya hoser! :)

why does this channel not have a seperate channel ? why does it take over the sd channel?

i mean VERSUS/GOLF HD is NOT the same as Versus.

so why this foul up?

I like how theres golf on and its not in HD.

I guess the LPGA hasn't quite got the ratings to justify HD?

NO, not what I meant.

I mean this is not an HD simulcast of and SD channel, so why is DirecTV making it the default for channel 604 instead of giving it a unique channel number ?

Because VERSUS SD AND GOLF SD are NOT GOLF/VERSUS HD

Glad to see Versus is utilizing their HD channel to show an infomercial instead of the Aggy Baylor game in HD.

Channel 604 is the unique channel number for it. Vs. is on 603, Golf is on 605.

What a joke! If you are going to share a channel like that, the least they could do is show something that's worthy of HD bandwidth!

Man the Wings/Ducks game looks amazing. I am loving this MPEG4.

And a big thanks to D* for getting this channel on because if it wasn't I'd be watching the game in SD because of crappy baseball being on 94/95 instead. ;)

Go Wings!!

I'm getting sporadic pixelization in Kalamazoo - What are your 103(B) strengths? Maybe my dish needs some fine tuning.

High 80's mostly, some high 70's. Haven't had any pixelization at all.

Was watching a bit of this yesterday, and the logo showed that this was "HD". It is definitely wide screen, and looks a little better than SD, but someone please tell me this is NOT real HD!

Does anyone know what kind of cameras they use, and if this is really HD? The quality of this is nowhere near what CBS produces in their golf coverage. :nono:

604 is a unique channel number. Full time SD VS is 603, full time SD Golf is 605.

Barring events running long, rain, and such, there will never be a time when live events will be on both VS and Golf at the same time.

Just thought I would share that the Standford v. USC game looked excellent on Versus HD. It rivaled any other HD football game I have seen. Definitely not a Pac 10 fan, but was got caught up in this close game and what turned out to be a monumental upset. It sure made it even sweeter to watch it in fabulous HD quality!

I thought it looked mediocre at best.
