  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday. However, you may have problems accessing FerrariChat until after you log out, clear cookies/browser cache, and log back on. Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    How about "Dish" network?

    I will miss Speed coverage, especially when they used to actually fly in to the races.

    On U-Verse it's channel 1640. But still no listing in the guide to set up recording. I'm going to call today.

    NBC Sports Network Channel 220. I believe it is not in DTV's basic program package.

    Universal HD and NBC Sports are 2 different channels. NBC Sports is on channel 220 (it used to be VS on channel 603) and you DO NOT need the extra HD channel pack to get it. You DO need the XTRA package or higher to get it though.

    According to some articles, they'll be streaming on their web site, too -- but it uses Silverlight.

    Remember that, on Dish, there are *two* channel 159s: HD and SD.

    I am a bit concerned, also, as some Indycar races, when they went overtime, were bumped onto ESPN3, which Dish doesn't have.

    I don't know if NBC Sports would do the same, now that NBC is running the channel.
