I think it is working, even if Mcgrath recognises it! <!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Sunny crossed the line, says Pidge
From Greg Buckle in Basseterre, St Kitts
March 16, 2007 GLENN McGrath believes India legend Sunil Gavaskar's comments about the death of David Hookes had "crossed the line".

McGrath was not alone in condemning the former batsman, with Victoria's Brad Hodge also fuming.

"Fair enough, if that's what he thinks, he's allowed to comment on the team," McGrath said today on Sydney radio 2KY.

"But I think when you start bringing David Hookes into it, that's crossing the line.

"It's very disrespectful. Sunny was an amazing cricketer, but I think this time he's gone beyond."

Hodge was visibly angry about Gavaskar's reference to his former Victoria coach.

"Pretty disappointed. I'm disappointed about comments made (about) my former coach David Hookes," Hodge said at the team's hotel in St Kitts.

"That's all I'm going to say about it."

McGrath indicated today that Gavaskar's relationship with Australian cricket could be damaged by his ongoing outbursts.

"I think potentially it could be. We'll wait and see. The comments in themselves are very disappointing when he's mentioning David Hookes and you really feel for Hookesy's family," McGrath said.

Gavaskar recently described Ricky Ponting's men as "unpopular" winners because of "awful" onfield behaviour.

He raised more eyebrows this week when he brought up the "example" of former Australia batsman Hookes, who died after being punched outside a Melbourne hotel three years ago.

Gavaskar suggested on ESPN that "some hot head guy" might "whack" an Australian cricketer if they spoke as offensively in a bar as he claimed some did on the field.

McGrath said Gavaskar's sniping at Australia had been "going on for a little while".

<b>"I think with it being the World Cup I think Sunny sees Australia as the main threat to beat India and he's trying to put us off our game," McGrath said. </b>

Former Australia captain Allan Border and Gavaskar have given their names to the India v Australia Border-Gavaskar Trophy, but Border has also this week criticised Gavaskar, who heads the International Cricket Council playing committee.

McGrath defended Australia's behavioural record, saying the players were "definitely" not as bad as Gavaskar portrayed them.

"I've seen other teams do exactly what we have. I don't think the Australians are any worse than any other teams," he said.

"It's fine to say that we are but at the end of the day I think the Indian team does it as well as every other team."



Herschelle Gibbs smashes a record six sixes in an over !!

Many problems solved. Now confused at higher plane. Is there some reason why DirecTV broadcast (obtained 400% legitimately) can't be recorded on videotape?

If yes, any ideas on how to record? Place where telecast is available is not exactly convenient to be around watching game when India plays, for instance. Like tomorrow.

I think it is encrypted. I have DishTV and the match takes up more than twice the recording space for the length. You need a DVR.

DVR on wiki

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Satellite or digital cable

Recording satellite or digital cable signals on a digital video recorder is more complex than recording analog signals or broadcast digital signals. This is so because the MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 stream is usually encrypted to prevent people from viewing the content without paying for it (usually via subscription).

The satellite or cable set-top box does two things. First, it decrypts the signal. Second, it decodes the MPEG stream into an analog, DVI, or HDMI signal for viewing on the television. In order to record cable/satellite digital signals you must get the signal after it is decrypted, but before it is decoded (between steps one and two); this is how DVRs built into set-top boxes work.

An alternative is that some satellite or (more commonly) cable set-top boxes have a FireWire port that can be connected to a computer. The recorded MPEG stream can be relayed to the computer via this FireWire port; though it can be done live, this is more commonly used for transferring shows from a set-top box with built-in DVR. (For instructions on doing this on a popular set-top box with DVR, please see the Wikibook entry How to use a Motorola DVR; some of the ideas there may apply to other set-top boxes as well.)<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

So if you have a external USB DVR or a PCI DVR, you can record it on computer. I will try on my computer and let you know if it works.

Point is, it is coming to a normal LCD TV (well... "multipurpose" as in Gateway 40" screen which can double as monitor or TV, precisely for such occasions as World Cup soccer or cricket), operating in TV mode. I think the signal is actually coming through a cable into a normal (ancient VHS) VCR through its cable input connector, and displays fine (like I said, this is 450% legitimate, no kidding). Other channels coming through same cable, same machine, record fine - but not this particular channel. Can they do THAT? <!--emo&:eager--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/lmaosmiley.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='lmaosmiley.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Anyway, looks like today's India-BD game is not something I want to record. Sehwag out for 2. Uthappa out for 10. Tendulkar and Dada look like their bats are entanged in their boot-laces. Are these guys really clueless against CUTTERS?

This is how I feel, seeing this on the Cricinfo commentary <!--emo&:flush--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Flush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='Flush.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Oh, sorreee! It just got worse. Tendulkar out for ***7****

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->4.6  Abdur Razzak to Tendulkar, OUT, Razzak gets the big wicket. With an arm ball. lands on the off and middle, Tendulkar drives but is surprised as the ball comes back in. His bat comes down outside the line and he gets an inside-edge on to the top of the bat and it pops up to the 'keeper. Bangladesh are having a ball out there. Super stuff from them.

Sehwag got bowled by one too. These guys better not play against Model High School for Boys, ****, Kerala. I would have got them all out for 100 (100 wides and no-balls).

India 40 for 3. Against BANGLADESH... <!--emo&:whistle--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/whistle.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='whistle.gif' /><!--endemo-->
Dravid gone.

At least India is consistent. The wicket conservation rate is on par with the run-making rate. <!--emo&:flush--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Flush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='Flush.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Make that 159 for 9. Bombay Duck lives down to his name.
At last some REAL batting. Reached 191 courtesy of Patel and Zaheer. Now THAT's a winning score!

BD 100 for 3. Not good. Pakistan, OTOH, got kicked out for 132 against that other Powerhouse - Ireland - but Ireland is now 15 for 2.

Maybe for India in future they should have Patel and Khan open the batting and Sehwag and Oothappam open the bowling.
I hope this remains on the cricket field and does not repeat on the maidan-i-jang as they like to call it. <!--emo&:omg--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/omg.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='omg.gif' /><!--endemo-->
There is no refund for cancelling dishtv. that is not fair.

But what would happen if india beats SL on 23rd march. What are the rules?
Bangladesh - 121/3 (28.5 overs) Run Rate: 4.20
Req. Run Rate: 3.35
Well, there is no disgrace if the opposition is playing better. Anyway it is the indian cricket team that should be embarrassed. (see that is disassociation and rationalization).

Please post when it is all over. The Ireland Pak match is more interesting. 86 required in 32 overs with 8 wickets in hand. I hope pak loses. It would lessen the hurt of the indian loss. <!--emo&Smile--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->
