      I don't subscribe to Setanta, instead using it as an excuse for an occasional visit to the pub (to see any match I really want to see).

      OK the picture quality is not as good as Sky HD, but this is balanced by not having to listen to Andy Gray !! I am sure Sky could afford to send him on a course to learn the laws of the game.

      How are you watching it, via a dish or airel or via cable ?

      If it is via dish it happens a lot when there is heavy rain, it is annoying but you get to live with it. I have Sky btw.

      It loses the signal during heavy rain because it's on the Eurobird satellite. To make it better you can either get a second disk or realign your dish slightly.

      Although sky have lost a lot of games to Setanta, most of the games on Setanta are not worth watching eg. Stoke vs West Brom!

      Depends on how much into football you are, I would watch any football on TV.

      Both as poor as each other due to the restrictions imposed by the FA. The only way to get any kind of decent service is via non UK broadcasters.

      The above comment makes me think of two things on
      my wish list. (I hope someone can tell me they already exist.)

      1. Sports.
      On the multi screen options, you can choose to watch
      a sporting event without the commentators.
      But you do get the crowd noise, umpire and linesmen calls etc.

      2. Computing. A widget for Vista that links to Windows Calendar,
      so not only does your home page show the date and time but
      you also see your appointments for the day.
