    only when they show a HD program,otherwise it's just a black screen. Is this the same with CBSHD & NBCHD.I thought I would get the whole east coast feed.:(

    What does your program guide say? There was talk D* would only show the baseball games from Fox HD until the legal issues were ironed out with E*.

    I noticed on my program guide that 88/89 were up but no picture.So I called the csr and he said I now have FOXHD east coast feed but only when they show HD content and this was how it was to be.Do they show it the same way on CBS/NBC HD?

    NO. On cbs and NBC hd they show non HD content as well just not in HD of course. There is always something on.

    My guide only shows ch 88.

    They must have come to an agreement just for the ball game(s).

    I just had the same conversation, which turned into a slugfest. I then was told that the signal was blacked out by the league, not by D*.

    Where do they get these people?
