I'm excited that FSN Midwest is now a 24/7 HD channel, but can someone who has already had their RSN in 24/7 HD clue us in as to what HD programming (besides Cardinals and Blues broadcasts) we can expect? FSN Final Score wasn't in HD this morning (I don't know if this is produced in HD to begin with?) and based on the program guides, neither the Cardinals' pre-game or post-game shows will be in HD. I'm excited about the possiblity the full-time capability provides, and at base level I still get to watch my Cardinals in HD. But right now it seems to be a lot of steak with no sizzle.

I think that is about it right now. I am pretty sure that only some games are in HD for right now.

I have a question. My SL is set up as follows "CARDINALS CCHAN 647 & SHOW TYPES, LIVE" because I didn't want to record the repeat games. Worked alright for the most part, would usually record it on both 647 & 647-1, but I'd just cancel the non-HD broadcast if there was an HD one.

Now, I'd really like it to just record everything on the new FSNMWHD channel from now on. But it's still wanting to record it twice, on both the SD channel & the HD one. Is there any way I can set up a SL to achieve this? The HD channel doesn't have HD as part of the info, so pointing to HD in the search doesn't help. I also tried to do "CARDINALS CCHAN FSNMWHD" but (not surprisingly) it didn't work.

I'd love to not have to babysit this SL so much. :P

You may want to give a couple of days for the guide to adjust to the changes. If that doesn't work, you may have to schedule the games manually or reset the SL for the new channel only. Hope that helps :)

Hopefully as the RSN's go 24/7 FSN will ramp up more HD programming (FSN Final Score & others):) But it is cool :cool: that we have the channel 24/7 now :D
