    WebTV

    Does anyone know if any events will be on the Russian WebTv service again? There is someone right now rebroadcasting a US open tennis event off one of their channels on UStream, and WebTv has really improved picture and sound quality, from what I can see Will we be able to watch any skating in Hi-Def on WebTV this coming season?

    In the US, icenetwork is doing live streaming of the GP events, and on demand coverage after the events. NBC's Universal sports has delayed TV coverage.

    What's available in other countries?

    Are you sure about this? I just pitched out $10 for three months on an Italian VPN service, so I can get the events, just in case they are not on WebTV. Nobody has mentioned WebTV, so I got the Italian VPN so I can watch the RAIsport coverage. Does anyone have a schedule of what parts of competition, and when, will be broadcast on RAI?

    I just checked this website and it says it can only be seen in Italy.

    Well, I have got my subscription on the Italian VPN, so I am all set to go.

    I hope that the GP series have not gone over to Russia 2/RTR. I have watched Europeans and Worlds on RTR, and Russia2/RTR leaves a lot to be desired. With the constant commercial interruptions, I might as as well watch in on NBC or Universal, if I am going to get bombarded with that many commercials. And Russia 2/RTR often cuts off coverage in the middle of an event for something else. There are only two Russian-based sports networks, RTR and NTV. I just hope that NTV still has the GP series.

    I've never watched it though, so I can't guarantee.

    I remember weird stuff happening the last couple of years. Literally 20 minutes before the event, somebody finds a link to a TV station in Turkey that has live streaming for free. Of course, that's after I paid a subscription to IceNetwork for the pleasure of watching a black screen.

    WebTV will show the entire GP series. The Turkish channel only shows Europeans and Worlds, and often only ladies because of Tugba.

    Any tech people out there who can help me with a video question? When I try to make a video go full screen, I get sound but no picture, only a white screen. With video on small screen, the video lags behind the audio. My settings must be off but I'm not sure what to do. Definitely want to get this addressed before NHK. Any thoughts?

    A recent "upgrade" to the player that IN and youtube use set "Enable video acceleration" to on. You get a white screen if you have an older video card that does not support video acceleration. To turn it off, start running any youtube video in a small screen. Right click once on the video. A context menu will come up. Select "Settings" from that menu. Then uncheck "Enable video acceleration" Then hit "close". You should be in business in full screen mode then, both in IN and youtube.
