I had the opportunity to call customer service Saturday evening due to my constant reauthorization of my HR20-700. I was not able to see the MLB EI (I subscribe) channels in the 700 series. I could view the games on the RSN's (I have Sports Pack). The CSR stated this to me regarding MLB blackout rules as to the reason I could not watch the games: 1. MLB has the same blackout rules as the NFL. Really! And this is the best one, wait for it.... 2. If a MLB game is not SOLD OUT by the beginning of the first inning then the game is blackout. :eek2: I wish I could say I was making this up, but I'm not.
