    Since Week #1 was a bit rocky, I couldn't help wondering what everyone's experience was this week with the ST package. Buggy? Beautiful?

    (And, yes, I'm asking you all because I'm not yet a subscriber and so don't have the option myself. But I'll be fixing that "problem" in the next month.;))

    The TV side seemed fine. The streaming was better than last week, but the PQ was doodoo (I've read).

    The broadcast version is great as expected and as usual. (Most of the glitches are typically the network, not DIRECTV and there aren't many of them.)

    I've read that the ToGo performance was not as good. Seems like the servers/network had capacity issues from what I've read and watched.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    ToGo was spotty. Excellent at times, especially on the later games. Heck of a lot better than last week.

    Jags/Jets was on my local station. As a Jaguars fan I wanted to watch even as they were obliterated. The local CBS station switched halfway through the 4th qtr. I immediately called D* to try and get the blackout on ST lifted but to my surprise and satisfaction, it was lifted before I got through to anyone. So, I was happy about that.

    Not a fan of either team but something told me to watch the Bills-Raiders game. What a roller coaster ride that was!

    Still cant watch To Go on cell phone unless wifi is on.
    What is the point of TG if you can't use it outside of the house?

    I couldn't get it to work on wi-fi either. Told me to switch to 3G network. Of course it didn't work on that either.

    If I'm somewhere that I must be (and may or may not want to be) and want to watch a game, yes I'll pick whatever I can get.

    Cheers,

    I had a problem with 2go today. Last week I was in Las Vegas and watched a few games on my laptop. Today I was at home and using my laptop again but the D* servers thought that I was still in Vegas and blackedout the games that were on tv there. I restarted my computer and cleared my cookies but it still didnt work. When I called in the 2 people tried to help but couldn't fix it, just told me I was out of luck. Its not the end of the world but is really annoying. I got 2go for free, otherwise I would be more upset.

    My expectation is that PCs are located via the IP address. If your ISP does not properly give your location, you could have a problem.

    There are a couple ways you can check your IP and the location assigned to it. Google searches should tell you where it thinks you are.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I just did a google search and the results did show Green Bay as my location but I wonder if it might be my Mcafee Total Protection that is blocking it somehow. The second person that I talked to did say that my computer showed up as being located in Las Vegas as I figured was the problem from the start. Thanks for the quick reply.

    Ah, that is another possibility. I wonder if the application does some checks for VPNs and communicates that information back to the servers.

    Cheers,

    Son switched to DTV 2 weeks ago, got the free NFL thing and reported that it worked great on his phone while at work today. Was with Dish for over 8 yrs and is one happy camper now that he switched.

    I had major audio static during the end of the Bills-Raiders game viewing through "normal" means. I switched to another channel that was also showing that game and there was no static on the other channel.
