    Thanks for the reply Dan. I have Total Choice +. I rebooted my receiver and the channels then appeared. Problem solved.

    I expected the HD games to show up on like 94 or 95, but not listed...anyone know for sure if we'll get the HD games?

    No HD for the BTN until D10 lights up in the next week or so.

    I'm watching the PSU game. Can't wait until we get these games in HD, but for now SD is better than no game at all (what my Comcast neighbors are enjoying LOL).

    Anyone getting huge overscan at times on channel 220? The game itself seems fine but some of the commericals and cut scenes with Big Ten Network graphics seem to go past the screen. I went to pillar box to see if it was on my end but the overscan was still there.

    I'd worry about how Michigan played today than about the overscan:nono2:

    On a normal Saturday our Applebee's near by would be full of football fans, today its empty. They have cable not D* so no OSU. :lol:

    Did anybody see the highlights of the Ohio State-Youngstown on ESPN? The HD feed from BTN looks pretty good. I can't wait until it switches over.

    No doubt, the HD highlights looked great on Sportscenter! I can't wait until they fired up D10!

    Go Bucks!

    BTN looked great in SD! The games all looked sharp...and it was great to see all of the school's games one way or the other. I can't wait until the conference schedule starts!

    They have good announcers for the games, and their wrap up show is at least on par with the RSNs. Much easier to watch that than the wrap up show on ESPN. Especially with ND playing so poorly, Lou Holtz may have a breakdown by the end of the season.

    The Big Ten may be weaker than the SEC this year, but it'll make for more excitement...

    Yes, I noticed it...

    My guess, is that for a few of the commercials they where done for 16:9 HD, and just didn't account for the SD "cropping" properly

    I noticed on several occasions during the Mich-App State game that the color commentator pointed out a few things before they happened. He was on top of things and I liked that.

    Most of the games did look like some of the best SD I have seen in a while on sports. Except the Indiana game looked pretty dark for the short time I watched it.

    Anyone know how D* is going to handle the BTN this week with the 5 games at Noon?

    Edit: Nevermind I found it. The Purdue game will be on Channel 223. They've created a 5th channel for BTN might want to add that to your favorites.

    I can't watch this channel until it is in HD. SD is just to painful.

    Have you actually seen it yet? The games last weekend looked surprisingly good on my 106" projector, even though they were only SD. MUCH better than SD games on Gameplan.
