    The Mavericks are on FSSW tonight, so the Stars game is on local KDFI tonight. They have an HD channel, but don't know if it will be full 16:9 HD locally.

    For all you Canadian HD fans, the Leafs/Panthers game will have the Rodgers SNET HD feed tonight. And for all you Hawks/Wild fans, time to start complaining about not being able to see your game tonight, because of VS.

    Darn :lol: Stars are playing the Devils tonight. I'm a Stars fan from Dallas but I "got educated" in the NHL from the C-Band days watching the Devils on Sportchannel and WOR. They're my 2nd team so when we play the Devils it's strange watching it since I like both teams.

    I'll definitely have to try 638-1 without going to it via QuickView......I'll keep my fingers crossed!!

    I think I'll try it without rebooting first. I can always try that if there's a problem.

    thnx!!!!

    Question: Is there an established reason NHL Center Ice is not showing the KDFI (My27) games this year? For as long as I can remember up until last year, NHLCI showed most (if not all) of the KDFI games - many with continuing color commentary where the commercials should have been. I enjoyed that and miss them very much.

    I didn't know they showed KDFI games on NHL CI last year. I can't watch the Stars on NHL CI since I'm in market. Maybe someone else can answer that one.

    They have shown KDFI feeds this year, at least on DirecTV. However, as in previous years, they are only shown when there is no other feed more readily available (like a feed from FSN, CSN, NESN, MSG, RSN, etc.). KDFI does generally seem to trump other OTA feeds like KDOC and AZTV, though.

    Also, DirecTV still uses the KDFI backhauls without commercials, but unlike a few years ago where you could hear Ralph and Razor joking during the breaks, DirecTV now shows their own pay-per-view commercials. Every now and then they screw up and don't put the commercials on. When the Stars were in Nashville at Halloween that happened with the KDFI feed, and we were treated to Razor's rather colorful comments about some guys who went to the game dressed as Snap, Crackle, and Pop (which I probably shouldn't repeat here :)).

    OK...it's after 7:00 and 638-1 says channel unavailable.

    I see the Sabres are in SD on 638 and 771.

    I'm trying a re-boot of my HR-21.

    We'll see........

    If that doesn't work, log into your online account and reauthorize your DVR through this [Link]. Hopefully the reboot or reauthorize will fix it.

    Reboot didn't help.

    I started to look at the signal strengths, went out to the kitchen for dinner, came back at 7:35 and rechecked the stations.

    638-1 was there!!!!

    WTF!!!???

    Did you "reboot" or "reauthorized"? Sometimes it can take a few minutes for reauthorization to take place, so it may have kicked in while you were gone.

    I did a reboot....never did reauthorize.

    Rebooting didn't help.

    20 minutes later, checked the satellite strengths.

    Either the delay or checking the strengths fixed it.

    Any ideas?????

    I'm used to not getting HD feeds for MSG NHLCI games, but tonight get to watch an HD feed of the Isles on Altitude. But only 1 of the 3 games on tonight are in full 16x9 HD. Seems to me like the number of HD feeds is lame this season. A lot of 4:3 Fox Sports feeds (which I guess Directv really doesn't have control over)

    Fox's new Houston facility will hopefully have all broadcasts for next season's games in HD.

    Yes, I was fooled by the HD listing for my Sabres/Lightening game last night. Tried the Lightnings HD feed and it was 4:3 with side bars, ugh! At least with the sports pack I can switch over to MSG HD and watch the highlights on the postgame show in HD. And they have been worth watching this year!
