    I know they are, but I wonder if they will carry the HD feed or just the SD.

    I just wish it would start showing up on the guide so I can program it, we will be coming back from the Cowboys-Bucs game (my wife wanted to go) that night so I will have to listen to it on Sirius and watch it when I get home. I guess that I will program it into both the SD-Tivo and the HR20.

    I just checked my guide and the Denver-KC game showed up on channel 95.

    Okay, this was just wierd. I skipped ahead in the guide and saw it listed on 95 but then I backed up to see when it would start and when I got the guide past the start time for the game . . . the game disappeared from the guide!

    My HR20 updated at 3:45 this morning and the game no longer shows up on 95 and was gone from my ToDo list. I went ahead and manually programmed it in.

    EDIT [08:37 PM CST]: It is now showing up on the guide.

    95 is flaky as heck. Things pop in and out and back in the guide quite regularly. Usually when an actual game shows up in the guide, it will indeed be shown -- even if it disappears a time or two in the interim.

    I'm as close as 100% certain as I can be that the game will be on 95 tomorrow night.

    The game is now listed on Channel 95 from 7-11:30 CST. If I leave it on that channel though a Channel not purchased box comes up. I've got every package necessary, so I hope that is just a glitch that is fixed by 7pm.

    The same thing happened to me last night. I left the guide, went back into it and it was there again. I set it to record without an issue.

    WOW, DTV must be compressing the crap out of the signal. Going to commercial just now the camera was flowing across a sea of red jerseys in the crowd and the pixelation was terrible. That's not even fast motion. Not good HD PQ.

    Watched the first part of the game at my parent's, who have cable. Same pixelation problems there, so I have a feeling it is the NFL net's cheap HD hardware at work :) heh

    I didn't see problems with the game play itself, but when panning over the crowd (75% of which was red) I saw lots of problems. But since aphoward saw the same on cable that would lean more towards a problem on the side of NFL Network.

    I didn't pay attention to the lights on my receiver, but the game didn't sound like 5.1 to me.
