    This is my husband's one hang up with us ditching the cable. I found a place where we can get it on the net (justin.tv), so he could watch it on his computer, but he'd rather have it on the tv. Is there anyway that we could make this happen? I would LOVE to ditch the cable :(

    And with the talks Fox is currently having with Nascar about moving some of their races to Speed channel starting next season it may be even less at the beginning of the season. :(

    Can you connect the computer to the TV?

    justin.tv is rebroadcasting the races live? That's great. And depending on your TV and computer set up and what cables you have it can work.
    I had to watch the Speed Channel race of the Winston (or whatever they want to call it today) with my $250 laptop connected to my TV with an S-Video cable and sound from the laptop to the TV.
    I still have standard def TV so it looks OK on my TV.

    Illegally and with crappy quality, sure. You can bootleg almost any live sport event if you look hard enough.

    If Fox is going to show the races on SPEED, I hope that Comcast wakes up and provides an HD channel of SPEED in all areas.
