You lucky dog, I had to settle for the Giants/Rams game on a 36" HDTV. Those Titans uniforms sure look like the old Oilers.

I get ESPN/HD (via DirecTV) and ABC in HD (via the antenna).

I also get HBO/HD (via DirecTV) and NBC in HD (via the antenna).

All on my 55-inch Mitsubishi!

Now, if I could only get the local FOX and CBS stations to broadcast in HD.

Good beer AT a cheap price. I buy half barrels of Ole Mil for $ 39.00...beat that Fred

15.5 gallons of beer = 165 12 oz beers = 24 cents a beer

You best bet out there for a box now is either the Sony or the Zenith Sat HD520. They are both the same units. The Zenith is ussually about 100 bucks less then the Sony. They just had a price drop so you should be able to get them for around 450 or so. They seem to have very good tuners build into them for the local HD stuff and they also find and lock sat signals very quickly so you can actually channel surf a little bit.
