Week 5 Coverage Maps are out, you can find out more about them or get updates as some coverage areas will change HERE (http://www.gribblenation.net/nflmaps/)

Note from site:
WEEK 5 SCHEDULING NOTE
The Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings game presently scheduled for 12:00 PM CT (1:00 PM ET) on Sunday, October 8; will move to Monday, October 9 at 7:30 PM CT (8:30 PM ET); if the Minnesota-Oakland playoff baseball series goes to a deciding fifth game (which would be played on Sunday afternoon). Should this change happen, television arrangements for Monday have not been announced. We will not know for certain until the conclusion of Game 4 (if necessary) on Saturday at the latest. The Fox distribution map this week will assume the game will be played on Sunday as scheduled. If the game is moved, all areas currently scheduled to receive Lions-Vikings will get the St. Louis Rams-Green Bay Packers game instead.

I never understand these coverage decisions.

Like, why would that on little area of Texas (Amarillo?) on the CBS map get the Miami-New England Game? No divisional interest or regional interest which other games would have.

Thanks for posting these up. I cannot remember if it is you Stinger that does this every week or not, but thanks.

Sucks waiting till Friday sports page, nice to know a couple of days earlier.

And ditto to the poster above, the coverage decisions are nothing short of baffling.

They had mercy on the people of Washington, Oregon, and Alaska by not forcing them to watch the Oakland vs. San Fran game

Sweet. The Bears are on CBS opposite the Chiefs. No way in hell they'll show the Chiefs over that. No interference with my HD two weeks running now.

Why won't you just buy an OTA HD tuner and be done it? I'm on the other side of the planet and i'm uncomfortably familiar with your TV gripes. What does that tell you, besides that i have no life?

WTF is an OTA HD tuner?

Over the air HD antenna. An antenna to pick up the HD single off the tower, just like rabbit ears, sorta, only for HD.

An ATSC tuner? So you can get the local CBS affiliate in HD over the air?

or maybe your DTV box has one in it, in which case you just need to connect an aerial to it?

Well, i was talking about a set top top tuner, which you'll need if your TV or Sat box doesn't have a digital OTA tuner in it. But yeah, that.

The problem is that I have a DVR. The DTV dish I need for the DVR doesn't pick up local channels. To get the local channels I have a UHF antenna hooked up to the DVR, which picks up every channel except 2, which as luck would have it, is the CBS affiliate. The DTV dish that picks up local channels isn't compatible with the DVR (Catch-22 situation from hell). So I can't get CBS in HD, and if the Chiefs game is being broadcast locally, DTV blocks out the specific HD channel, so I'm screwed.

Would this tuner work with my DVR?

that suggests your DVR has a tuner in it already, and that the issue is that you're just in a shit spot for revieving the CBS affilliate. A different (more sensitive?) tuner might pick up the signal, the only way of knowing is by testing them. As for working with your DVR, i doubt it, youd have to use a separate input on your tv.

There are other people in my area (HemiEd and Swanman) who have the same problem. The DVR won't pick up Channel 2 because it broadcasts on a low frequency. If it was any other channel, it wouldn't be a problem.

I would have to get an outside aerial antenna to pick up Channel 2 in HD. I can't do that because I live in a condo.

I've been all through this. Until DTV comes out with a new dish which will pick up local channels AND be compatible with the DVR, I'm just shit outta luck. Although I've been told that this will happen next year (right after football season ends, I'm sure :# ).

Looks like Lubbock; probably Zach Thomas/Welker Texas Tech connection.

Good Call. :)

Can you do Eastern Washington on that game?

Or Hawaii and the NYJ/Jax game?

Your chances of finding a regional game like this on TVU are pretty low. It's possible, but I doubt it. Here's a listing of known streamed games, just in case, though.

Oh, and it WILL be on Sopcast. Guaranteed.

I believe you're thinking of the NBC affiliate, but I could be wrong.

I think you're right, but i've just fired it up and the CBS is SoCal somwhere.

I shouldn't have cancelled my Sunday ticket. This is the second week in a row I'll have to go to the bar to watch the game. Screw the Bears.

Actually, I think you're right. I guess it's possible that BOTH stations are out of SF. I just checked out their listings on http://www.viidoo.com, and they have a pregame show for the Niners/Oakland game the night before. It's got to be over there somewhere.

Yeah FOX is San Fran aswell.
