    I was referring to DirecTV's equipment to receive CI transmission from the NHL Center, in Toronto. The equipment issue I was referring to is DirecTV's reception of the CI package and has nothing the NHL Network.

    I went to the local bar, 2 min from me to watch the CSN telecast so I was able to see it in HD.

    To the moderators:

    Is it too much to ask people to stop talking about individual game results here?

    A) It adds nothing to a discussion about satellite sports.

    B) It's selfish and rude.

    If that's too difficult to enforce, start a "Game / Result" folder.

    Thanks.

    This topic is in sports and events, and the title of the thread is all things NHL.

    This thread doesn't move that fast anyways. So what is the big deal having to scan through a few posts that deal with individual game results. I never really understood why people get so bent out of shape about a. people asking a repeat question, and b. people posting off topic posts. Is it that hard to skim over the post? It is not as though we are getting 100 posts per day on this thread.

    Finally, laphilly is right. The thread is for "all nhl topics", which scores/results would definitely fall under.

    Its sad that in this day and age, that we can't get at least the HD feed of all the RSN's. And for Flyers fans, even an SD feed of every game. Getting a Canadian HD feed would be a bonus.

    One more day to see if I actually can watch an MSG HD feed for the Sabres. I'm hopeful, since they actually list the HD feed of the Sabres/Canes game on 638-1 tonight and tomorrow. Since the game isn't actually on until tomorrow, they must be really anxious to show it in HD!

    You made my morning, and for that I thank you! I find it hilarious that people have an issue with this.

    A) the title is "all NHL topics/NHL center ice". I may be wrong but I am pretty sure the score of the flyers game falls under the "all NHL topics" ports of that. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
    B)this is a friendly forum where people have conversations. If you don't like it, SKIP over it!!!

    Sorry for the rant.

    PS. That Flyers game was awesome!!! 3 and 0 baby!!!!!

    So because of the whole MSGHD / Center Ice issue I subscribed to NHL Game Center for a month to check it out. It's been interesting as compared to Center Ice for a few reasons.

    If I was a Philly fan, I'd cancel NHL Center Ice, subscribe to Game Center and buy a PS3/Roku/Boxee box. Last night's game was available on using the CSN Philly HD feed. Looking back through the archives they had quite a few preseason CSN Philly feeds as well.

    Also, if you really care about Canadian feeds in HD - Game Center is the better deal. Plentiful HD feeds.

    I do recommend a box of sorts to watch it back on however. I have a PS3 and found that the video was smooth (I'll say more about the quality later) and having a remote made switching games, feeds, and maneuvering through the Game Center app very easy. Plus, dedicated video playback devices will typically do better decoding the highly compressed video streams than your PC will. Roku especially is quite affordable at this point.

    As for the video quality - I'd cal it HD Lite. It is not as good as DTV's HD quality whatsoever. It looks to me to be 720p video @ 30 frames per second rather than the 720p60 or 1080i60 video from DirecTV. It's also much more compressed @ 3 Mbps (as opposed to the ~8 MBps from DirecTV. BUT... it is far better than DTV's SD feeds, no questions asked.

    I agree 100%. I actually watched the flyers on gamecenter myself. My only issue is that the roku stops a few times a period and I need to rewind a few seconds to get it rolling again. But all in all I'm happier with gamecenter than D* for the time being.

    I feel really stupid. I just bought an apple tv to watch hd flyers games on gamecenter. I got it set up and then realized my Samsung tv which has built in wifi is capable of having gamecenter!!! And it works well too!!! Who needs D* now??? Not me!!! Haha. But having to pay for both GC and CI isn't right at all.

    I agree, just like of you subscribe to HBO or Cinemax, you get their Go packages free.

    I understand that they want to make 170 for each so basically they are trying to get you to sign up for both services and pay 340 for hockey.


    19.99 a month for GC is probably the cheapest, 6 months thats 120. alot cheaper then paying 160 for GC at the yearly price. Plus if you really wanted to work it.

    The first 3 weeks are free NHL CI, then on the 24th sign up for GC at a pro rated a mount. you then get GC for like 100.

    as far as watching flyers, I jsut go to a local cheesesteak shop the owner who's good friends lets me watch the game even when I dont order food. helps being in walking distance 2 min walk.

    Oh how I miss my Philly Cheese Steaks! Living in Baltimore now, I am stuck with the Crapitals. I try to get up to Philly for a few games a year and always have to get my cheese steak while I am there

    PS. Sorry to anyone I offended in this post here. Now that I look back, it is pretty self centered and rude of me.....

    Some Philadelphia fans continue their classless behavior:

    does anybody know if I can get a refund from D* for center ice? I am tempted to buy a ps3 and just use game center all the time.

    I could be wrong, but I believe you have to cancel before the season starts.
