You can always record the RSN directly: the MLB EI channels are only a mirror.

Nope, won't let me. I don't have the Sports Pack so the record option doesnt show up when I try to record channel 639 :(

Every year we go through this. :rolleyes:

There's a lot going on now with NHL, NBA & The Masters. You can't judge what's coming based on one week.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

also this year we have more RSN's / part time game feeds. But at very least they can remap WGN A HD to MLB EI but they do not?
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Just tested MLB.tv through the Samsung Blu ray player and I have to admit it was really good except for the buffering. But then, I turned the same game on EI and the picture absolutely blows MLB.TV away and obviously, no buffering through D*. EI wins.

The device you use and your ISP make a big difference. Watch MLB.TV on a PS3 with a good connection and the difference will not be as noticeable.

The connection I have is as good as I can get. Even if I called to up the speed I only get it by Ethernet cable. Can't happen in my house. And that's fine. I'm more old school in how I want to watch anyway.

My point being is that the PQ is not so much MLB.TV vs EI, it is more setup vs EI.

The quality on Roku seems better.
