    This is a modern-day Heidi. At 11PM my broadcast dissapeared and am getting the channel not purchased message (I am in Cleveland). Less than 5 minutes to go in the game and a tight score. This is unacceptable!

    Middle TN area
    Between exactly 10 and 10:03 PM CT,the (721) message has popped up 3 times here.
    We haven't had the issue for the entire game,and now it gets inside of 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter.
    Someone at DirecTV needs to quit playing with the switches. :sure: :lol:

    Looks like it is fixed, I wonder if this has something to do with them "lifting" the blackout in Cleveland?

    I hope the game is over by the top of the next hour.

    Clueless CSR reauthorized my receivers. Told her she better reset everyone in the country :)
    Why do they ALWAYS think its a problem with the receiver?

    Because cable rarely deals with "Authorization" issues like D* does, or not that I have seen.

    It probably happens on E* too, I am thinking its one of those "nature of the beast" type of things that comes along with having DBS.

    Sheesh, I thought it was my box messing up. i was so mad I smacked around the poor little HR20 a bit.

    I started recording the game at 8 and left to walk the dog. When we came back, my box was locked up and wouldn't boot after several resets. When I finally got it running again 30 minutes later, I looked back at what I had recorded and there was a "looking for authorized content" message during the recording and then came the lockup. Then the channel went out during the last 5 minutes of the game, but thankfully there was no lockup this time.

    Thanks DirecTV. Thank goodness for the live feed on NFL.com. :rolleyes:

    you're correct. It wouldn't be happening with Comcast. They don't carry the NFL Network.

    Comcast in my area does, they carry it as part of their "sports pack" I believe.
