I know we still have Miami of Ohio to play tomorrow night, but in anticipation of my dad visiting this weekend (Class of 69) I am trying to get prepared. Has anyone watched a game on ESPN3 before. I have the HDMI cords to hook my computer up to my TV, but I am scared that the action will be "herky jerky". I am hoping someone else has had some experience with this in the past.
I'm sure all of you lucky fans in NC will get to watch this through a local station, but I'm afraid down here in Atlanta that we will be forced to watch online. On a side note does anyone know where all of the Duke fans gather down here in Atlanta.
Thanks ahead of time for any advice/recommendations on both questions.
Go Blue Devils!!
I've watched the last two football games on ESPN3 and been pleasantly surprised. The video quality is pretty good even in full-screen mode on a big screen hooked up to my Mac Mini via HDMI. Can be a little herky-jerky but sure beats the alternative of not being able to watch it at all. My download is usually around 11 Mbps (business account)
I wish I could access ESPN3. My cable provider doesn't play nice.
I agree that it is dependent on your internet connection. However yesterday's game was particularly problematic for me - I also had frequent meetings with the "stay tuned" screen (while sound was still playing in the background.) I had a VERY strong connection to the internet at the time. I watched the USC-FLorida game the day before and had no problems.
I watched this past weekends Duke football game through my XBOX Live with the ESPN3HD and it was great. Only had to buffer one time for the whole game and the picture quality was much better then when I use to watch it on my computer. Makes my XBOX Live membership a little more worth it!
I also watched some of the game on ESPN3 and had some jumpiness. Unfortunately, live streaming video is still someone hit or miss. Raycom used to provide an excellent feed for games that they covered, but unfortunately they only have a couple of games this season.
Does anyone have a schedule of which of our games will be aired on ESPN3? I can't find this listed anywhere.
However, last night was basically unwatchable for most of the game. Every few seconds, the action would freeze for a pretty long time, start back up again for several seconds, then skip forward 20 seconds or so. I hope this isn't a recurring trend, because it was just awful at my house (which has pretty fast internet).
This is my first year of watching Duke without cable, so I'm going to be heavily leaning on ESPN3 and over-the-air CBS, supplementing with trips to a sports bar for the few games that are on FSN.

Big question - anyone know whether the Miami (OH) game Tuesday will be on ESPN3?
I would have assumed so, but the tipoff schedule for the day only lists it as on ESPNU (while some other games are listed as "ESPN2/ESPN3.com", for example). To quote the great Kenny Powers, that ain't ballin.
