    Actualy 4.5, if we win, Utah is going to be the 8th seed.

    Let's continue the march for that No. 7 seed. I know I'm looking way way ahead, but I'd love to see us climb that high at the end of the season, and maybe with some luck, we could be playing Clippers in the first round. Yeah, I'm dreaming. :)

    omg i hate the games on KNWS the quality of the broadcast is soooo horrificly bad, it hurts to watch it. you can only watch it on a small 5 inch TV to where you already couldn't read the score or know the players numbers.


    when will all local games be broadcast in HD. that would be the day.

    Well looking at the standings. If Lakers lose they would tie with Utah for the 8th spot. So the Rockets indeed will be 4 games behind the 8th spot not 4.5

    When the tipoff gets close, go to this website:

    http://www.pplive.com/web/html/NewEnglishpCatalog_tPMwOAMQ_subcatalog_UwcAbwcgdAcw0.html

    And hit play for the channel with the highest "quality". Those are usually the rocket games.



    Personally, I like to use PPstream instead. It's built-in interface always features the rocket games when they come on with a handy picture of the opponents. Like this:

    [​IMG]

    Just click on the blue button that I circled and the channel will come on automatically. And even without the picture on the side, if you click on the channels with the highest percentage, those are almost always the sporting events.

    You can download ppstream here: http://www.ppstream.com/download/ppstreamsetup127.exe

    Unfortunately some people haven't gotten PPstream to work. But I'd imagine that if you can get pplive to work you should be able to do ppstream. Good Luck.

    ^ ppstream is okay, but buffering takes a long time sometimes. pplive is the way to go if you are impatient...their new version allows you to select cctv-5 and espn directly thru the program.

    I hope tmac will be okay tonight...I haven't seen this posted anywhere else, but truthfully, I didn't look too hard :eek: , but tmac had to stay in the trainer's room an extended amount of time on Monday b/c of lightheadness and fatigue after that bad game he had in Philly. Damn, his back, and now he's getting fatigued even with Yao shouldering some of the load. Not good. :( Cmon! Be tough Tmac!

    So I got the player to work, so it should show the game once tip off gets closer?

    Yup. I haven't had any of the problems with ppstream that other people have reported. If you've got it to work now, it should be fine when it comes to gametime and more users log on.

    Cool deal, thanks man! Should I just keep the sound off, kind of figure it'll probably be in something I don't understand..

    Thanks for the info M-Cable. I'm attempting to use this ppstream program.
    I believe I got it to work because there is a soccer game on right now.

    I have testing all those tv streaming software. The most stable and fastest buffer time is TVKOO. It's also very clean, just download and run it (no installation needed). It's far better than PPLive and PPStream.

    Jon Barry won't be activated for tonights game. This is becoming a head scratcher.
