My father knows a guy who has a brother that has a girlfriend who lives next door to Darren Mcfadden's mother, and she said her son would not play another game for Arkansas if he did not get his new HD channels. Which sounds good to me cause Auburn is so bad this year he might be able to run for 400 yards against us because our defense will be so tired since the offense is not good enough to stay on the field.

Hey LovesomeHD,

Has DMac caught his breath yet? 195 yards and I think 125 of them where with at least one bama defender holding on. I know we are small on defensive but that was really impressive.

Not crazy about his ride though...:lol:

I don't mean to sound like an jerk but thats a lie!

Directv has post-poned this until next Friday.... In the mean time, those who dont have the proper equipment but subscribe to HD will be receiving automated messages tonight until launch date stating they will need to upgrade or get the converter to be able to watch the new mpeg4 HD line up.

They have been testing all HD subscriber accounts earlier this week and last week... if you log on to your directv account online, and check your recent activities, you will also notice a charge for HD then a credit.

I'm sorry to break the news guys..but we will have to wait until next Friday... and this comes from my uncle who is in management at directv el segundo office.

how do you do that ? and how do you burn disk ?

Quick tutorial......take apart 360. Hook up 360 drive to your computer. Read the Firmware on it. Take the DVD key from it. Put that key into the hacked firmware. Load that Firmware back onto the drive. Put drive back into 360. Put 360 back together.

Download the game from NG's/Torrents. Winrar it back to its original size. Get a Dual layer DVD Burner......Burn a dual layer disc with the game file. Put disc into 360.....play the game.

If you want more info google it

The bottom line here is that the 9/19 was a "soft" launch date, thats why they didn't run out there and advertise it or post it on the web site. It allowed them time to work out the bugs so it was up and running by the end of the month, which is what had been promised. There is nothing to "lose trust" in, since they never promised 9/19.

We are making sure that all of our customers who have all the required equipment all set for the channels. We were going to launch the channels on 9/19 but delay it because we would be swamp with calls the next following days asking why they didn't get the hd channels and have all the correct equipment. We do apologize but we are making sure everything is all set and a couple of weeks or sooner shouldn't hurt. We are working around the clock to make sure everything is up and running.

That is BS your going to be swamped anyway with upgrades which will lead to 2 year contracts. The reason you gave is a total cover up it's gotta be a satellite/engineering problem. Makes no sense to wait 1 or 2 weeks all your installation crews are backed up 2-3 weeks anyway. Think about it your story makes no sense!

You wouldn't by any chance be working for Mastec would you? Aren't they the ones that had like 40 employees get fired for going to the news and telling them that Direct TV was taking money out of their checks if they didn't lie to customers about the phone lines needing to be hooked up. Didn't all of this go on in Florida?

And you are telling me that "swamped" doesn't describe all of the calls from impatient customers wondering why the promised HD channels are not in their guide?
How about the every day phone calls you will assuredly be receiving from those same cats asking "are we there yet?" ?

Either way you folks are going to get "swamped" with phone calls, and I find it hard to believe DTV is oblivious to that dynamic.

I don't buy your explanation dman. That may in fact be what "they" are telling you, but I personally think that excuse is nothing more than poorly thought out fiction.

dman does seem to be beating around the bush in regards to the hd startup date. it could just be that there is no definate start date yet or he was asked by his supervisors to keep his mouth shut...who knows. so let's give him the benefit of the doubt for now. if he is playing headgames with us that is a different issue though.

the startup most likely will be announced once directv gets all the technical things in order...billing, authorizations, guide...whatever they are.

the only line that I do not buy so far is that directv is waiting to get more customers upgraded before they start. because that is a process that would take forever till that is accomplished.

I give a F_K thats who does.They LIED to the customer's ! We're the one's who made them famous and rich !

Rick, I am not trying to pick a fight, but who and how did D* lie? To the best of my knowledge, they never committed to 9/19... did they?:what:

If you (or anyone) can show me where someone in a position of authority made a FIRM COMMITMENT to 9/19, then I will gladly apologize to you and grab my pitch-fork and torch and join you in storming the castle.

We all want the new HD channels... I am sure they will turn them on as soon as they can.

BTW... I can't wait until 1/13 and the new season of 24 starts... how bout you?

I LOVE the tv show 24 ! Did you know that the character of Tony Almata is coming back? He never really died and the show will move from the Los Angeles location to Washington D.C..
Jean Smart should of won the Emmy.She was GREAT on Season 5 of 24 and season 6. She played the President's wife.

I read about Almeada character the other day. It is one of the best shows on TV and looks great in HD.

I agree about the Emmy. :offtopic

I read that you have a Panasonic plasma tv.I was thinking about buying a Panasonic 50 inch Plasma or a Samsung 50 inch plasma.
What are the pro's and con's about your tv set?
