    I am missing many HD games and my guide is all screwed up. I have no "-1" channels in the guide instead it has 704 USOPHD in addition to 704. The HD games that I do have don't match up the channel for it. For example 704 USOPHD is showing Browns - Vikings but it should be Mia - ATL. Anyone else having issues? Should I reboot? BTW, this is for both of my HD-DVR boxes.

    Player Ticker is working perfect on the HR23-700. It takes a little bit to load but just as much of a delay I get from loading TvApps.

    FYI that Game Mix has always been a bit slow to load up the yellow highlight box.

    Other then that everything has been awesome and it reminds me why I pay for Sunday Ticket.

    Is there any workaround for this? A little bit of a pain especially if I have one tuner set to a ST blacked out game and the other tuner on ST.

    Hit EXIT to remove the active content, once the yellow highlight dissapears, you should be able to down arrow for DLB. I was using it the same way.

    Went upstairs for dinner, left the HR20-700 on game mix channel, turned the TV off, came back and the picture was dim with a message about "screen safe". Is this something unique to ST, or is this common on mix channels?

    It's common to the mix channels. I think it's to help folks with set that can get burn in so they don't burn the mix channels into their screens.

    I think pressing any key (including the arrow keys) will take it out of screensaver mode. Pressing "dash-dash" while it's in screensaver mode will disable it until you tune away and tune back. Be wary of burn-in if you do that, though.

    This is my first experience with ST. Wow! I don't know if it's worth the price (I got it for free this year through Movers Connection), but, wow! I had the Colt-Jaguars game on one TV through its OTA tuner and ST Game Mix on another TV. Wow!

    I agree that the yellow box seems slow, but I had nothing to compare to. A couple of times, I just had to tune to a different channel and then come back to get the yellow box to show up. This is on an HR21-700.

    My only problem is that the Player Tracker stats are either very slow updating or does not update at all. I have only seen stats come up for maybe half the players I selected and, for those players, only about a third of the actual stats popped up.

    I had the most of the same issues today as everyone else. The inability to select a game on the game mix channel for several minutes was very frustrating. Entire package was slow.

    I had sound dropouts on several of the games. Very annoying...the old garble sound. Especially on a game I want to follow.

    Next week I will try the reset trick someone posted if I have issues...wish I would've come here earlier.

    This happened to me last season week 1 and the fix was to remove the b-band converters. It was working with the b-band converters by week 2.

    I have the same issue with player tracker ch 701 crashing my HR20-700. Starting happening around week 4 last year and has never worked since.

    To Bearcatzack: Are you saying to remove b-band converters and then ch 701 will work? Or remove them and then put them back on?

    I don't want to lose all the channels that need the converter, nor do I want to constantly removing, installing the converters either.

    I was reluctant to change models but now that my area just received HD-LiL's, I would change receivers if necessary. I was using the HR20 for recording OTA thru my antenna.
    Thanks for the help.

    Player tracker is still freezing my HR20-700 this morning. It loads the title page and then freezes.

    hey guys new to DTV. I got the package with NFL Sunday Ticket and last week was watching all games in HD and it looked great. The game mix was also available. I noticed it said there was a free trial that first week. So now this week will i also get to watch my games in HD? (the HD channels and game mix channel is still showing up on my guide but i do not have superfan) I guess my question is do I need to order superfan in order to watch the game in HD and watch game mix. No big deal if i cant watch the game mix without superfan my biggest concern is the HD cause i switched to the standard channel and it was just terrible, without HD i dont even think i could watch it.
