The current PGA Tour TV package doesn't have any early round coverage on USA, it's all on Golf Channel. USA was done after last season.


Cool, thats for the info......

Bes sure to update your series links to the new HD channel. 4400, Dead Zone and Burn Notice are all still in the guide.

Definitely 10/4... I checked. Right in the crowded Thursday 10pm timeslot. Come on, USA, throw us a bone here.


I saw a promo for it this morning and set up a new series link for it.

Oddly enough, though, that it only picked up the episode for this week. The following week (11 October) is a new one as well but did not show up in my To Do list. I'll check it again later to make sure ...

Regardless, good timing on this deployment of channels for the CI premiere.

I havent watched anything on USA for atleast 8 years. Today was the 1st time. Im very pleased they arent partaking in the STRETCHOVISION most of us have come to hate. As much as I dislike the fast and the furious movies I will check it out as its the only HD title coming on this early.

I noticed that USA has reruns of Friday Night Lights, Chuck and 2 eps of Life on Saturday afternoon, and yet only Life has the HD icon. Should it be assumed that all 3 will be in hd. Ive missed the first eps of Chuck and it'd be nice to catchup in HD.

Monk, Psych, and The 4400 should be back in January. And until then, there's always the repeats.

Thank you, USA Network, for no stretch-o-vision.

I don't know about the others, but the 4400 is a summer show. It just ended a few weeks ago. If it's renewed, I wouldn't expect it till June or July.

That's very good news for 3 way conflicts. Would have been nice to know that this Monday when I was watching MNF, which I only watch if either of my two teams are playing, and Chuck and Everybody Hates Chris are on at the same time.

Golf Channel got the weekday coverage now. Golf Channel is sharing the HD channel with Versus that was launched last week. However, last week's game doesn't appear to be shot in HD. In fact, I haven't found any program on it that was shot in HD. I certainly hope this gets better and we start to see some true HD programs.

Golf in HD makes a lot more difference than other sports. I can't see the ball, otherwise.

I was thinking that might be the case so I'll check tonight or tomorrow.

I just want to make sure it's covered since Thursday is one of my bowling nights.

when tomko, steiners, and overload of Angle is on the tv..... i think people would rather watch nothing.... and dont get me started with pacman jones...


IMHO TNA took a step back by adding Pacman "Thug" Jones.

That Pacman thing is beyond stupid especially since he can't get physical. My favorite moment during this whole thing was at the last PPV the fans were chanting "Pacman swallows!" :D

Fast and the Furious is currently being shown in HD.

First time I've seen the USA-HD bug, as well.

Fast & Furious looks pretty good. The guide is also showing Law & Order CI and Monk in HD. Haven't gone much past the next couple of days to check anything else.

Am I the only one that gets 721 on USA HD? Bravo HD was fine this morning but all 3 receivers give me 721 on USA HD only. I spent 1 hour on phone with DTV and after all that time was told that they know of the problem and it's being worked on at there end but yet i come here and everyone seems to have it. Go figure :(

I didn't have a 721 error, but I was getting the 771 searching for signal error this morning at about 6:30 AM PDT. Hopefully this will be cleared up by the time get home. Gotta get my SL setup for the L&O:CI premier tomorrow.

I recorded about 40 minutes of "The Fast and the Furious" before I started watching it. I have been watching it for about 10 minutes now and about every 2 minutes the video breaks up for a second.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Just looked at tonights guide for USAHD to see what we got. Wow! It's yet another Law & Order rerun network. I guess TNTHD wasn't quite pumping out their quota of formulaic, predictable, can't-tell-the-difference-from-one-episode-to-another, old, network crime drama reruns. Jees.. Just what we needed. What a monumental waste of HD bandwidth.
