    I know tomorrow CBS is starting their regional Collage basketball coverage. I am wondering do I need ESPN Full Court to get the out of market games, or will I just get that game without any special package??

    Full court is no help. As i recall from last season I needed the sports pack to get these games?

    On a serious note. I have the Plus HD DVR Package and the Sports Pack. If these are the channels 728-1,729-1, and 730-1 those channels age grayed out in my guide. Shouldn't I be getting these channels? I do not subscribe to Full Court anymore.

    If they're broadcast on the Full Court channels, then they will be grayed out elsewhere; otherwise that defeats the purpose of having Full Court. DirecTV wants you to pay extra for those games.

    If I remember correctly the CBS Regional games use to be carried on Channels in the low 600's range. I am getting Duke vs Xavier currently in HD on my local CBS Station but I also was wondering where the other game was located. I am thinking all you had to have was the sports pack to receive these other CBS Basketball games.

    That game is on 728 (SD) and 728-1 (HD) but I can't get the Duke vs Xavier that one is not listed. Anyone know why that is?

    Visman I am also getting the Michigan State vs Texas game on channel 728-1 in HD but I don't see the Duke vs Xavier Listed in the 700's channel range. Duke vs Xavier is on my local CBS.

    Michigan State vs Texas is local for me also. D* had 390 open for a little bit but that is no longer either.

    Anyone else noticing no center channel audio at the end of this game? I need to turn off DD to hear the announcers. It is the same on D* or ota, so its either a local St. Louis problem or a national issue.

    Anyone getting ESPN Full Court in HD? So far all the games I want to watch have been ultra LOW"D". I am kinda pissed that for the price I may not see any of the games in HD?

    Not sure if it me or just DTV?

    There is no HD in Full Court, on any provider that I'm aware of.

    Full court is just the national rebroadcast of a lot of regional broadcasts. None of which have the budget that could include high quality HD broadcasts. I'd give it another 10+ years before you see something like Full Court in full HD

    You are correct. Only a very few of the games carried by Full Court are currently even produced in HD, so they're not even there to carry.
