Default I'm so pissed at NBC.

I bought a 60" HD DLP TV, upgraded my Dish Network to HDTV, and bought a Blu-ray recorder, all just for the Super bowl. I invited friends over. I bought almost $150 worth of food and pop. (friends are BYOB) I hyped up my new TV to said friends. Cost? Let's just say I could have GONE to the Super Bowl.

The game came on. It SAID: "Brought to you in High Definition by Vizio." I said oooOOooo.... Then the game started. It didn't look like is was in 1080. I turned on the alternate NBC channel. Same quality. I thought, "Well, this sucks."

Fast forward 2 days.

I watch the SB Replay on the NFL Network HD.

IT. IS. STUNNING. I about wet myself.

What the FRACK, NBC?!?!?!?

Don't think it was necessarily NBC themselves, but your local station.

I didn't think anyone broadcast in 1080? I thought 720 was T.V., and 1080 was for Blue-Ray and next gen games?

My fam and I had the worst time watching the game. The station constantly cut out, meh. Too bad it didn't permanently silence Madden and Michaels, though.

Odd... we have a brand new HD television, surround sound, etc and ours looked great! It might not have been NFL channel quality however it looked great (I hate watching games on Fox or CBS, NBC is definitely the best out of the three)...

I'm sorry you got all geared up for a less than expected super bowl experience that would have made me completely angry as well.

(Reminds me of when we got Wrestlemania last year on PPV, we had a ton of friends over for the show, our friend brought his HUGE flat screen down to watch it on (this was before we got our own)... everything was looking and sounding great... right at the end during the last match - I believe the Undertaker came out and BAM... the power went out for three blocks!!! And didn't come back on for 2 hours UGH!!! Thankfully we were able to watch the end later that evening... my boyfriend was SO annoyed but more so that he felt like he was a bad host).

Your friends know it's not your fault - I get your anger but I don't feel like a bad host by any means!

I wasn't against the new TV but I had NO idea the difference it would make!!! I was shocked! I can't watch regular TV anymore!

Wow. Sorry to hear that man. You must have felt like a real Stu Pidasso. (j/k)

Btw, I looked at the 60" DLP's a while back and they had a really nice picture and were priced great imo.

It's now okay. NFLHD is replaying the whole game, halftime and all in GLORIOUS HD Sunday night. Got the Blu-Ray recorder ready...

I called a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who works at TV21, and it wasn't the network, it WAS my local station. They had "issues" in transmitting. Bastards.

But like I said, I got the replay coming, so it's all good!

If they are going to force us to listen to Collinsworth...Olberman...Madden and Millen....they NEED to have the best picture possible
