I have Tennis Channel audio but no video...

I tuned in to hear the end of the braodcast of the Fish - Blake doubles
match in Houston. The audio is fine, but all I get is a black screen. So I
guess I can't watch the Roddick - Haas match final.

I have Comcast broadband cable service and having the audio is a start.
Maybe I can convince them to add the picture too?

Turns out I don't have the Tennis Channel. I have INDH and INDH2, two high
definition channels that require you to have a high defintion TV. Audio will
come through fine, but the picture won't be displayed on a regular TV

How much do HDD TV's run these days?

You got the Tennis Channel on Comcast?  Can I ask where you live?

Denver. To be correct, I have the channels INDH and INDH2, which are
high-definition TV channels. The channels broadcast the Tennis Channel for
this and other live events. From what I can tell, they don't display the
Tennis Channel 24/7, like the Tennis Channel.

Not to rub it in...but... I just found out I have the Tennis Channel (both
video & audio) :) here in Minneapolis on my TimeWarner Cable service.  I saw
the whole men's clay court final.

Like salt on an open wound...!

I'm jealous, for sure. Cool for you, though. Think of all the matches you'll
get to see.

Tennis Channel is definitely cool.  There are a lot of repeat matches
played, mainly from DC, that aren't all that interesting--at least
more than once.  I am getting to see guys that are not featured on
network tv, which is good since I go to much fewer events than I used
to.  Don't seem to be many classic tapes either at this point, or when
they show a 'classic' its a recent not-so-classic replay.  The little
they do show is good though--recently a Hoad/Trabert match.  More
doubles than network tv.  I saw Fish and Blake DC which showed that
Blake leaves a lot to be desired as a dubs guy--no threat to the
Bryans for Olympics. There are also little features that you don't see
anywhere else, like the one where Agassi admits his career slam is not
such a big deal, more a novelty distinction for a less-than-great
blue-chip record, and cautions his lovelorn fans from overemphasizing
it so as not to be disrespectful to the true greats of the game who
deserve far more credit for their more consistent and consolodated
achievements..  :)
