I have an HR21-700. It seems to be having a problem lately with channels that aren't available all the time. Channel 641 is MASN2. Yesterday, the Orioles were on that channel. However, on that channel was just the Directv logo. 641-1 is the HD for that channel, that channel didn't even show up on my guide. So I went to my other DVR (HR22-100), the game was on both 641 and 641-1. So I restarted the HR21, no help. Then I reset it by pushing the red button. That fixed the problem. Now tonight, the Nationals are on MASN2 and both 641 and 641-1 show the directv logo. The HR22 works fine.

Since the MLB package was free this weekend, I checked some of those channels too and some channels worked and others didn't.

Any ideas?

The Nats are on MASN 640 right now, not MASN2.

Getting the O's vs Rays on 641 & 641-1.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Do you get the O's games, usually? Do you sub to EI? Try resending authorization: www.directv.com/resend (I think)

I guess this is my day for reviving old threads.

I've been having the same problem as the OP with MASN2-HD on 641-1; twice within the past week my hr24 has been unable to tune in to a live event on 641-1 whereas my hr21 sitting right next to it has no problem. As with the OP when I try to tune it on the hr24 I still see the D* logo and music that is typical of the channel between live events, but I know the channel is broadcasting just fine because I'm able to watch the game on the hr21.

It wouldn't seem to be an authorization problem since I'm getting the logo and not the blackout message - any thoughts? I'm hoping it's not a failing hardware issue with the hr24 since I paid weakknees $200 for it and don't want to play roulette with a replacement - I can't stand watching anything on the unresponsive hr21 after being spoiled by the hr24.

OP, if you see this can you comment on what your resolution was?
