    Why are you so worked up? I read it as the generic you but you meant it as specific you.

    I don't get the angst.

    It actually the MLBTV feed. Not the various streaming products. According to MLBTV tech support I was quoted maximum bit rate for HD feeds a parsley 3mpbs/second. To put into perspective a standard dvd bit rate is 6-8mpbs/second. A sat or cable sport hd feed can vary from 16-19mpbs/second. Their streams are too compressed for quality PQ on a HDTV screen larger then 32". Tech support agreed with me and stated that the bit rate was developed for computer screens and small screens such as the I-pad and such. They stated they are working on increasing their bit rates. What do these low bit rates mean for real world vewieng-lots of compression artifacts such as tearing, macroblocking and blurring especially during fast motion and the last time I remember sports has a lot of motion. I would encourage everyone who is not satisfied with the HD quality to call MLBTV and ask for tier 2 tech support and complain. If enough people complain it will get ownernship's attention.

    The Padres blackout area goes right into western portion of the Phoenix area. The Padres used to broadcast games in Phoenix before the Diamondbacks started up. The weird thing is the blackout area doesn't encompass the entire Phoenix area.

    Haven't checked this thread in a few days... Thank you for this! super helpful if it works, I'll test tonight.
    I think I saw that Wednesday issue the other day and I saw the sox game on NESN alternate channel. Too bad their pitching is so awful...

    If you tag a 629 after the 628 so it looks like this:

    AALL HDTV RED SOX CCHAN 628 629

    then it should catch the games on 629-1. You might get some Pawtucket games with this as well. Hope it works for you.

    This works well, at least so far. I'm trying to figure syntax to have it filter out replays and only pick up live, looks like I can't chain event and live together, but the replays are pretty limited. I'll screw around more in a bit, but so far this looks good, thanks!

    AALL TIGERS EVENTS LIVE HDTV CCHAN 663 665

    You can use live to get rid of replays. I don't know if 663 664 would get 664-1 so when I set mine up I used 665 and have never gotten a recording off Chicago comcast net, always get the FSN Detroit.

    Now just apply redsox logic/channels and you are good for the season. Also remember to set the add 3 hours for rain-dealy-proofing.

    Did you try setting my suggestion up (using show types, events) to autorecord and checking what the to do list actually schedules? If I click on the search results, replays do show up for each game, but with the auto record, only the actual live games are recording.

    Ah... I'll have to double check the todo list, it was in the results that I saw it. There is so much crap in my todo list it's hard to wade through, but I'll take a look tonight. I do have it set up exactly as you described by the way, thank you. I read the thread on using the advanced regular expression type stuff on a wish-list but hadn't come away with the impression I could do it. My tv watching life post tivo is getting remarkably better than I had anticipated.

    It might be easier to go to the guide to see what is recording. You can page right oleo see what is marked to record but even better is to highlight the channel number in the guide and hit INFO to get a channel listing. All items to record will be marked.
