    Absolutly PATHETIC CBS! You know, you don't really feel the pain until your team is hit with the old CBS HD DENIED bug. Ouch, im feeling a little queezy! Oh, well... Hopefully we'll continue to win and CBS will CONTINUE to air us in HD! GO CHIEFS!

    Did all you guys pay the $99 to upgrade? I already paid a bunch for sunday ticket, when I saw the HD was an additional $99 I was really pissed. Seems very unfair to charge more, especially when most of the channels are sourced in HD and the extra work is to down convert them to SD for retransmission.

    Just updated the four time-zone schedules. This is the "Final Version". The TV Distribution Maps are now also complete!

    Now is the time to download and customize the Week #5 Schedule.

    Sorry the Jags@Chiefs is alone in SD hell this week. Next week, the Dolphins@Browns return to SD hell once again.

    It looks like the Chiefs/Jaguar game is being broadcast in HD. I wonder why Directv isn't carrying it in HD?

    Just did a sanity check with the CBS Schedule website here. They don't show Chiefs/Jags in HD.

    However, the usually very-reliable HDSports Guide here, does show that game in HD.

    Someone is wrong....

    Thank goodness for mute buttons. I can't remember the last game I listened too on Sunday Ticket. I do enjoy Gus Johnson and can tolerate a few others but generally mute the games on both TVs.

    Sunday Ticket is wonderful. I've had it for over 10 years and the HD option makes it even better. It's Directv's meal ticket. They need to tend to the other packages in similar manners now that they have the bandwith.

    What is the latest on the Jags/Chiefs? HD or not? Is the guide wrong?

    Isn't DTV supposed to black out a game on ST that is available locally, even if it's only available in SD? Last week I game I wanted to watch in HD and was broadcast locally, was available on ST.

    Is this an oversight? Can I expect this to happen on a regular basis (getting the game on ST, that is)?

    Both CBS and DIRECTV show the game in SD only.

    One possible answer: the game may be recoreded in HD but only shown in HD in that local market. Remember: CBS's achilles heel is a lack of "infrastructure" - that is, the ability to handle HD signals in their control center and the bandwidth in their backbone pipes to backhaul or distribute the signal to the affiliates. I fear this is the case.
