    642-1 is up but will only have games on it, have to keep 642 for all the rest of the programming. Same with 641-1 and 641. :)

    I live across the border in Minnesota but would rather have the Wisconsin feed. When I go to 641, I get a picture. 642 just gives me a blank screen. Am I SOL?

    641-1 & 642-1 both were blank, also, but I expected that.

    What about games that these RSNs are only doing in SD - will these channels at least show the SD game upconverted? That would improve the PQ greatly IMO.

    I wish - Frank's hair would look sweet.

    Not this year and maybe a couple next year from what I remember the rumor to be.

    you need to explain to Directv that they have the wrong zip code for your address. Say like 54601 in LaCrosse. or something like that.


    but I wouldn't know "anything about that, Willis." :D :nono2: :nono: :lol:

    but you may then get the Brewers, Bucks and other Wisconsin teams..

    I know the Rochester/Mason City/Austin DMA. With Directv we get both the 641 fox sports net and 642 wisconsin fox net. We are considered in the Brewers and Twins markets for baseball too. Doesn't make sense but that is the way it is. Not sure about NBA games. Does 642 carry Bucks NBA games?

    There are still not enough Wild, Twins and Wolves games in HD. I think there are only 10-12 games in HD this year for the Wild :(

    you are correct.

    It is hard watching the wild in SD on a 56" screen, maybe next year or the year after or the year after that or.................................

    I received channel not purchased on 641 during the wolves game and I live in 55412 or north minneapolis. when the game was over the channel came back on. Tech didn't know what the problem could be but agreed to try swapping the receiver. I have been getting blackouts for all the HD feeds from 641 this season.

    my old SD receiver carried 641 no problem.

    strange

    The wolves weren't in HD tonight. Remember the "-1" channels are no a simucast. It's a games only channel when the games are in HD

    Not sure if this was in response to me but I should have been clear saying I have gotten all FSN north HD feeds 727'd on me on channel 96 this season. The 3 hockey games and 1 hoops game that i was aware of. What happened tonight was similar but first time it happened on 641 and that I got a 721 message.
