    I like the layout of these things but wonder what if others would find it useful to show the D* channels of games airing on DNS feeds as well. it would be like a fall back for ST which dont have problem often but something else to check on if they do. I know not everyone has DNS feeds but sometimes they are opened up to everyone as well. Those slots other then the ESPN game on Mondays dont have anything listed in them anyways and hose channels can stay. The DNS channels are the same for everyone. Any thoughts?

    You are sane -- just too fast for me. I started the uploads and then discovered the PDF ability to fill-in-the-blanks-yourself had gone awry. I needed to make a software correction and then do the upload once again. Sorry...

    joshjr,

    Please check out the GameSearch feature, HERE

    This may be the answer you are looking for. I have not tried it, but if it works as advertised, we're in great shape.

    For the DNS stations - if you get them - you will need to go to the "NFL TV Distribution Maps" link in the original post. There, you will need to know your DNS station so you can find what specific games they are carrying. The TPN Map spreadsheet can help you find what station/call letters provides what DNS feeds.

    Yeah I can do all that I just thought it would be neat if that unused space had the DNS stations listed for the games that are aired on them. Its not all games obviously but is several. I dont usually use them but from time to time I do check to see what is on them.

    Probably when he hit the shift-3 for the # sign he did a double tap and ended up with an extra 3. So don't get too excited -- the season hasn't doubled in length -- although if football players were real men, they'd play more than one game a week.... :)

    Kinda weird how my local FOX network station AND my FOX east and west coast DNS feeds have no information for the late game Sunday (3:00 p.m. CDT). The guide just shows "NFL Football."

    that likely will get filled in. Now if you had cable then that is all that you see.

    My understanding from a local CBS GM is that they pay for the rights to air the game and are allowed to pick what games they air. Maybe your stations just have not picked what games they are planning to air yet. The DNS channels do not show data for me yet either. I will have to check my locals when I get home tonight.

    They do.
    For example the lions play sunday nov 20 then play again thursday nov 24 - 2 games in 1 week. :D

    FOX hasnt released their final sched yet -- they usually wait until about wednesday.

    Sometimes they do a preliminary list early but they dont for week 1.

    CBS has so you should see their 1:00 games already listed.

    The question I was responding to was about afternoon games on Sunday.

    Here's the Eastern TZ schedule - with a trial inclusion of the DNS channels. As you all know, FOX West has announced their channels, but FOX East will probably hold off for a few more days.

    This is the real problem with trying to include DNS channels or any one area's Regional games for that matter. It really bogs down the whole process while you wait for announcements. That is why I send everyone off to the TV Distribution Maps website for all their location specific details.

    For those not familiar with DNS:

    390 is CBS-E, New York, WCBS
    391 is CBS-W, Los Angeles, KCBS

    392 is NBC-E, New York, WNBC
    393 is NBC-W, Los Angeles, KNBC

    398 is FOX-E, New York, WNYW
    399 iS FOX-W, Los Angeles, KTTV

    Just to share -- I have found the site www.titantv.com to be the fastest and typically most accurate source of programming info.

    Also just noticed that the TV Distribution Maps are now up. So Kirby, at that site, has gotten confirmation from FOX somehow and has finalized the maps. This fellow is great - no question!
