    FREAKING straight cable fans!!! :devilish:

    You guys are probably confused by what I mean straight cable fans (no gay cable pun jokes please :p)... I had posted last season about my neighbors who watch straight cable in thier back yard, and it is faster than someone with a box. They have a 19" TV in their backyard to straight cable (Time Warner)... I have since switched from TW to Satellite, more so for free Sunday Ticket, but in that old thread I remember someone saying that satellite transmits faster. Well, it doesnt. Opening weekend, I could hear the cheering from my neighbors seconds before Tolbert hit the end zone, etc.

    I have 3 HD tv's, 3 HD boxes ( you have to have a box with DTV) not that I would watch TV any other way than HD, unless I was in a 3rd world country, and certainly not for sports.

    Anyway, I set up a nice HDTV in my backyard, hey it is San Diego, outside living all year... Kinda pisses me off. Btw, I noticed this for Time Warner, Cox, ATT&T, and now DTV.

    Anyone else have to deal with this? Guess they won't affect me this weekend. :poop:

    It's even worse when you're trying to watch the game in a sports bar and they have both feeds. They have the audio from the HDTV on, but there's always a group watching the game on the straight cable TV, cheering a few seconds before you see each play. :mad:

    You are right... satellite does not transmit faster than cable. And here's the other kicker, and it seems odd given the technology, but HD transmits slower than NON-HD. Watch the same game on 2 different tv's (1 HD, 1 NON-HD), and the non-HD tv happens first while the HD is about a second or 2 behind.

    I've had DirecTV since 2000 and there is about 2 second delay compared with cable. Add one more second if you have a DVR.

    My brother has TW up in Wildomar (near Lake Elsinore & Temecula). He has a digital box (non-dvr). I was talking to him on the phone while watching the same game and his was actually a second or two behind me & my satellite connection.

    As they say, YMMV
