    On Dishnetwork's website it says Fox Sports North coming in 24/7 HD under TV Listings on channel 436. I also sent an email to dish about csn california HD 24/7 and csn bay- area and they said that they sent the request to the programming department. Let's see what happends now. I hope they add full time rsn's HD by the NBA season. Someone else should email or call them to add full time rsn's like CSN CALIFORNIA HD 24/7 and CSN BAY-AREA HD 24/7.

    Charlie said a couple of months ago that they would like (doesn't mean they will) to have some fulltime HD RSN's by later next year. They also hope to have more games in HD by then instead of their rolling blackout's of games in HD like they have now. Thats why I left Dish last month after 12 years for Direct. All of my RSN's are in HD fulltime and now I even get the Yes network. I will also have my hockey in HD this year too. It's nice not having to wonder if your game will be in HD or not.

    Get the same business out here in Cali. "Sometimes" HD games are broadcast in HD, "sometimes" the HD is "JIP" and "sometimes" (seems like most of the time) they just come across SD. So it's not just in Ohio, folks.

    I like Dish for the 211K's EHD capability to convert to a single channel DVR but the absence of MLB network and the careless handling of this RSN (or JIP or whatever you call it) issue has me investigating the alternatives in anticipation of my contract being up soon.

    Its that time of year, so I added MultiSports package today. I haven't noticed this in the past during College Football season, but will keep a very close eye on it.

    MLB Network is the best sports specific channel out there. I had to dump a provider and jump to another just to get this great network. Chances are DISH will never offer it.

    Agreed. Got to watch the MLBN launch, & the perfect game telecast, all that non-espn-hysterical coverage. Loved it.

    Perhaps he has Multi-Sport?

    I have a similar issue with Fox Detroit ... I can watch the Tigers local games on Fox Detroit but I don't get the channel without Multi-Sport.

    I was watching the Oklahoma State vs Washington State game this past Saturday night on our RSN. I was surprised it was not in HD. At half time I went to a bar to watch the 2nd half with friends -- sure enough, their Direct TV feed was in HD. So it IS happening with College Football!! Also, Direct TV carries the local station that carries the NBA Mavericks in HD -- Dish does NOT.

    VERY Irritating!!

    Very Strange and Very irritating. According to the HDSPORTSGUIDE, last week, the WAZZU vs OK ST game wasn't in HD. I was going to watch it as I MSP on 426, noticed the SD only feed went the the site, and the WAZZU vs OK St wasn't on the HD list.

    Here are the games for this week that will have a HD feed. We should track them. As Dish is MISSING College games this year in HD.

    Would both Eastern and Western Arc dishes have this problem/issue?

    Yes.

    DISH has capacity for 12 simultaneous feeds on Western Arc and 11 simultaneous feeds on Eastern Arc. That may have worked when there were not a lot of simultaneous games in HD but it doesn't work now. Until capacity is increased there will always be games missed.

    I'm having a similiar issue with the HD feed on ESPN2. Our local station is carrying the Wisconsin game and I cannot get the the Nebraska-Washington game in HD on 144 or 146.

    You're not supposed to get the game in HD. It's SD only for you.
