Soooo, if the problem actually is fixed, and we have our HD MSG back, someone should still call Gary Bettman to complain and see what he says. Seriously, ask him when the issue will be resolved, and see if he starts blathering on about bandwidth, etc. Then turn around and say, "Ha, really keeping up on things Mr. Bettman? The feeds have already returned, but we appreciate the honest and forthright way in which you have treated us..." I'd be happy to do it myself, but I'm at work when the show's on.


lol ... I think we take the oposite approach and thank him for solving the problem because we know he must have personally inseted himself into that and the D* VS negotiations ....

Oh sure, motivate him to actually take action and go back and have the MSG HD feed removed;)

I'm not counting on it being fixed. Sabres/Bolts game isnt listed in HD in the guide and since I record the games and watch them when everyone goes to bed, I wont be recording the channel even if it does happen to light up.

I noticed the NHL Network is rerunning Sabres/Bolts in HD late tonight and tomorrow as well so record that. Also the only HD feed of Buffalo/Tampa was from Tampa so there is still hope that MSG will be there, will find out at 7pm ET with the Rangers/Blues.

We'll all know if this is indeed true in 26 minutes once the Rangers vs. Blues game turns on in HD from the MSG feed.. I didn't hear the show, so I didn't hear his comment on the topic. Let's cross our fingers that D* didn't not get the memo and that they do remember to turn the feed on at 7pm.

Bettman reiterated it again later on during the NHL hour. The MSG HD "issue" has indeed been resolved, and all MSG HD feeds will be available to Center Ice as of yesterday 3/17/10.

Hallelujah.

Now, that's being cautious :)

Has this happened before, getting the pregame in HD on the CI channels, then they switch the actual game off? (during the MSG-HD issue)

"T minus 10 minutes & counting....all systems "go".....condition "green"..... "roger that....stand by for mode-1 Bravo" :)

Do you think we can call this struggle over once and for all? Or still cautiously optimistic?

I think that with what happened today, Bettman stating it on the NHL show, together with last night's HD feed, along with what's on the air as we're posting, that we can "stick a fork in this one...it's done" :hurah:

Go figure, I get the Devils/Leafs in HD. They never lit up a channel for Sabres/Bolts

Directv probably figures since we have the Bolts HD feed that is enough.
