    I've been so looking forward to this mornings race from Bahrain....it was to record while i went to church early this morning----only to come home and find out the sat-dish was off a tick (i guess from past 2 windy days) razzenfrattinrizzzesnivvet....i almost lost my religion when i found this out!

    so my recording of it looks like a pixilated cubist mosaic %(

    is there any hope? replay somewhere on DirecTv? espn? speed? or am i SOL?

    BBC iPlayer. You won't be able to watch it on the iPlayer because you are a pesky furriner :), but you might be able to download the programmes using this http://po-ru.com/files/ipdl.exe.
    Download it to your desktop. Open it, Copy and paste these links once they become live. You have to do it twice, one for each programme. (Part one is already live, part two will be shortly)
    1) http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00kfqj6/Formula_1_2009_The_Bahrain_Grand_Prix_Part_1/
    2) http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00k369n/Formula_1_2009_The_Bahrain_Grand_Prix_Part_2/

    I use this programme, it works great. Once the file has downloaded you play it in Media Player or whatever, and you can keep it. No DRM anymore. This may not work if the BBC can still figure out you are in the States, but its worth a try.

    So, why were we punished in the States? There was no coverage on Speed, Fox, or any satellite channel. Nothing. Totally blank. What did we do to piss off the F1 broadcasters? Maybe, we said too many bad things about Peter Windsor, who I happen to enjoy. Sigh. I was engaged to watch the crash session at Talledega, thank Gawd for the crash fences, otherewise they would have killed a 100 people with one of the cars flying brackwards towards the grandstands at 200 mph, a very scary sight.

    My power went down, and my DVR didn't record it either. I tried to download from the site mentioned above, and got the same message saying it was unavailable. Anyone else have any other suggestions?

    Mornin' Ed :) we did have coverage on the east coast thru Speed, that started at 7:30 am which is dark-thirty for my pacific coast friends...

    So i dunno what the deal is...i could find replays of Shanghai and Malaysia....but not Bahrain......*here's where i sart muttering under my breath again*
    I watched some of Talledega...took a nap inbetween the 2 big wrecks- absolutley astonished- eyes huge- hands covering my mouth in disbelief at what i was seeing...thanking God that the newer safey measures had done what they were supposed to do. It is an awful sight in slowmotion- and that is why, neighbors and friends , the event staff want to keep you back away from the fencing at all times.....


    I know your pain.....

    any other suggestions please?
