    Every time Directv gives us MLB Extra Innings free preview, I always seem to have to call them because I'm still getting the 721 message telling me I'm not subscribed.

    Is anybody getting Channel 720 MLB Mix yet?

    No. Actually I'm on with a CSR right now and she's absolutely adorable so I'll just follow through with her and if she can't help I'll try resend. btw, directv reps, her name is Marty and she deserves a raise.

    The CSR told me that it would come on at 7 p.m. Well, I'm getting the YES Network now, but still error code 721 on MLB Mix. This happens every time they give a free preview of MLB EI. Since I've got family watching two other tv's I can't reset right now (with Genie all of the clients go down until the reset is done). I really don't feel like getting on with Directv again.

    i actually have missed baseball.

    it's a lost season, just so hard to repeat in baseball, the pichers just can't recover. my Giants are not going to make it but really can't complain.

    Well, this morning it's still not on. I reset my receiver, still no luck. I had reauthorized yesterday which also didn't work. What is the problem, Directv? With all of your other free previews there's never a glitch, but every time you offer MLB EI there's this problem with the MLB Mix Channel. I've only checked Yes Network and get that, I'm sure like Old_School I'm getting the other channels. I'll try calling again but we really shouldn't have to! If they come up with a solution I'll post here.

    ok, just got off the phone with Mike. No solution yet, but Mike said he would post updates here. Weird, huh?

    Amazingly, (and it's not Mike's fault), but Directv acted like they had no idea they were giving a free preview this week. (The banner advertising it in the guide is no longer there!) But Mike, after some digging, found some literature advertising it. I know it's real because as I said, I got the Yankee game on YES Network, it's just the MLB Mix channel that's giving the 721 error.

    After trying all possible solutions with no luck, it was kicked upstairs to Escalation, and Directv engineers are currently trying to figure out the problem. But if I hadn't called them about it, they had no idea.

    I plan to parlay this into future discounts! ;)

    It looks like they're getting and using every available feed, including local channels, CSN-Philly and CSN-Houston.

    You know, Directv, you really blew it with this MLB EI free preview. Still no MLB Mix channel three days into it. You should really consider extending the preview. It's been worthless up until now.

    There are no Blue Jays games on SportsNet One until August 7 and the Extra Innings schedule doesn't go out that far.
