    I stream mine thru my computer. The TV just thinks it is a giant monitor hooked to the computer by HDMI cable. Mine runs best when I select the 720 speed manually.

    My smart TV has a web browser app. It is fiddly to set up, but works OK.

    Been using the same for a few years now. Even my measly 6mbps connection works wonderfully. MotoGP, WSBK, etc.

    I will make only one prediction. Hartley will see the podium more than once.

    I like going out on a limb.

    OK, we're close.

    Oh, happy pi day. My wife and I will walk later for a hand pie and coffee, maybe lunch time?

    Anyway predictions before the racing begins eh?

    For the 2018 MotoGP championship, (I gave up on using logic and went with my heart)

    1. Rossi
    2. Dovi
    3. Marquez
    4. Zarco
    5. Crutchlow
    6. Pedrosa
    7. Vinales
    8. Petrucci
    9. P. Espargaro
    10. Lorenzo

    There will be a record number of wet/dry/wet races this season.

    Rossi will of course sign for two more years. Marquez will find that defining the limit thru experiencing it has a downside. He misses a couple of races thanks to his search for grip beyond 66 degrees.
    Crutchlow wins in the dry and wet.
    Zarco wins in the dry at Le Mans, France calls a national holiday the following week. We finally get to see his back flip in MotoGP!

    Capirex slides the safety car into the gravel looking at a wet track at Phillip Island, where it proceeds to dig itself a home. Locals use beer kegs, found rope and three mules to pull it free.

    I'm looking forward to seeing/hearing the ebike demo laps.

    Jeorge will add two more streaks to his hair highlights and change the color to bright green, (Monster money to offset that looming pay cut).

    Tell us how you really feel.

    I think this race will tell us a lot about the Honda. If MM runs away with it, it will be a bleak season to be blue.

    I think it is already very bleak to be blue. I think the only hope is red!

    5 Seats T15 all three days plus 2 RV sites. While we won't be sitting in T15 all three days, the seats were the same total price at reserved for Sunday and 2 days general admission. Pretty excited! Meanwhile my last day as a working man is tomorrow. My desk is pretty cleaned out. Excited about that too! :D
