Default Stiletto at Redskins vs Giants Game

VS

Went to the Redskins VS Giants game last night and took my stiletto with me. The radio worked perfect in the stands. I, being a redskins fan went with my buddy who was the Giants fan listened together using both the antenna headphones and earbuds plugged into the unit. I guess I don't know which was worse, the pain from the score or the pain from the antenna headphones. Those headphones have got to get better.

On another note, I finally got frustrated because the 30 second satellite delay was driving me crazy. I ended up using my iriver mp3 player with it's built in FM radio to listen to the game with only a 5 second delay.

The quality of the reception of the satellite was much better than that of the FM. But the delay for live events just does not cut it.

I was happy with how well my stilleto did. Just unhappy with how bad the redskins did. Well, there is always next year....

Mike,

You should change the images, the Giants helmet should be BIGGER than the Redskins

I did say I was a REDSKINS fan! Besides those giants are smaller anyway. Ever see Tiki - he's the shortest guy out there I think 5' 10". That's why no one can catch him he is running under everyone.

Good report. I agree something needs to be done with the headphones soon.

My father has used the S50 to listen to a Falcons radio network broadcast via Sirius while watching the game with the sound turned down on Fox. The radio was essentially 1 play behind what you'd see on TV.

I'm wondering if the delay will be similar when watching and listening to NASCAR coverage in 07?

Not much you could do if you are at the game. But if you are watching on TV and have tivo you could pause the tv feed to match the sirius feed.

I have used my Inno at several races, as well as watching it on TV. The delay is about 15-30 seconds depending. The delay believe it or not is good if your at the track because when the caution comes out and it quiets down you get to hear it what happened. With the TV coverage it gets a little sketchy. Hope this helps.

the joy of stilleto and going to nfl games is for the gamblers. you go to the jet game and listen to some of the other 8 games going on at the same time. since you are not watching those games, being a play behind doesnt matter. you can also just check your screen for scores every so often

like someone has said on here before, forgot who. when you're watching a live event on live tv and listening to the audio on sirius. if you have a TIVO or cable dvr then just rewind so the feeds matchup and you're all set!

Hey Mike, maybe when I get a chance to go to a Ravens game in late 2007, I can do the same! Maybe by then a new set of portables will be out.

I bought my stiletto back in the first weekend of Nov. for the Chargers/Ravens game... I am a Chargers season ticket holder and flew out for the game... the reception was flawless there so you should be good to go next year with the stiletto.... Great game even though the Chargers lost... I have a feeling it will be Ravens Chargers for the AFC Championship... Glad we got the home field advantage...
