    Me!

    I'll probably have a very few folks over to check out the HDTV broadcast (simply because my HT setup doesn't allow for good viewing outside of 4-5 seats - and that's stretching it).

    I doubt the commercials will be in HD though, which is too bad.

    Count me in too. KTVX (ABC) finally got their "bugs" worked out although they are still only broadcasting in DD 2.0. It'll be the first time some of my friends have seen HDTV - let's hope things stay stable [​IMG]

    I don't even like football, but I'm having a Super Bowl party today just because it should look great on my new HD set. Most of my friends love football, so it should be a lot of fun. Getting them to leave after seeing how good it looks will be the difficult part. [​IMG]

    I'll be watching on a DLP projector on an 11 foot screen at a friends house. I watched it last year in 480P on Fox (I don't consider that true HD).

    This year it will be 1080i (Dallas ABC affiliate) My first true 1080i HiDEF broadcast! With ALIAS to follow in HiDEF! Wohoo! I am cooking the chili right now to take to the party!

    I'm having a few friends over and some people should drop by for a bit just to check it out in HD too. Like Patrick, I can only fit a small handful of folks in my living room, otherwise I would have just invited everyone over. [​IMG]

    Not me because I won't be at home. I always go over to a friend's house for a Super Bowl party and he doesn't have HDTV. [​IMG]

    Pre-game is not in HD here in Houston. The local affiliate is zooming in on the 4:3 broadcast.

    We have word from our local affiliate in Dallas that the HD switchover will be coming at 4:55 CST, and you better believe I'll be there for it!

    No tell me how it looks?
    I don't have a Tuner so I can't tell dang it.
    720P is it that big a jump over 480p DVDs?

    I came in here to see if others were seeing a jittery screen, but it looks good now. Did other see that during the opening festivities and commercials?
