    Somebody messed up, and, being Saturday, I'm betting nobody in a decision-making position was available to fix it.

    Yeah this seems to always happen at least once a college football season. Frustrating. Hopefully it won't happen again but I'm not getting my hopes up about that.

    I'm upset that ABC left the Red River Rivalry game early.
    I was really enjoying the game. :D

    They have screwed up the reverse mirror here in DC. VT game both on ABC7 and ESPN2/209. Saying the OSU game is blacked out on 211.

    This is getting ridiculous. How hard is it to get this right? And it is always the game I want to see that I get screwed out of.

    We're OK here in the midwest for the early game.

    Ohio St. on ABC, A&M on ESPN and VT on ESPN2. 211 and 211-1 correctly blacked out here.

    For the 3:30 window, we are mandated to have the Big 10 game on ABC, so...

    Nebraska is listed in my guide on ABC and ESPN2, with Texas Tech listed on 211 and 211-1.

    That scheme didn't work last weekend, as we had the Big 10 game on ABC and ESPN2, with 211 blacked out.

    As an aside, I don't know if you've seen this website, but it's a big help, especially if you have Sports Pack. He publishes this every week.

    So my one receiver had it correct (even though I rebooted both yesterday at the same time). Did a reauthorize on the one I originally checked on and had the wrong game on and it corrected the problem.

    www.directv.com/resend for those curious how to easily reauthorize.

    Reauthorization fixed it.

    After I got the nonsense from the CSR that the game was only available on SD receivers!

    What else is new. I'm getting fed up, myself.

    (disgruntled with no Pac12Nets for Colorado/USC tonight)

    I had problems last week and this week with reverse mirror. Fixed it today thanks to you guys.

    I am glad we figured out that a reauthorize fixed the problem.
