At the risk of sounding like an idiot, I have no idea what you mean. I've seen varying resolution on my tv depending on what I'm watching. But I've seen 1080i for many things. Not sure what native is.


Press menu on your remote, go to "Settings & Help" and then choose HDTV. Under video, what is native set to? If it's set to on, the resolution changes depending on what channel you're on. If it's set to off, the resolution stays the same and can be changed by pressing the "RES" button on the front of your receiver.

You are likely in a grandfathered package so if you ever want to download from Ultimate you will lose a bunch of channels you currently get in Extra. If that matters to you I'd be cautious, but if not go for it.

How come we're not getting Pirates vs Dodgers. Just the score is showing up on the Game Mix

DirecTV just tweeted that it was blacked out in both LA and Pittsburgh. They want other markets to call.

If the game is at Dodgers, why blacked out in Pittsburgh?

It's on now on both feeds. Im guessing hockey and basketball games were running long.

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

Ah, their tweet left that out. They made it sound like it was totally blacked out, not just on EI in those markets.

so to follow up on my question from two days ago. it was about 720p on Fox/ESPN.

from Wiki:

ESPN and all of ABC and Disney's cable networks use the 720p HD line standard because ABC executives proposed a progressive scan signal that resolves fluid and high-speed motion in sports better, particularly during slow-motion replays.


FSN HD is a 720p high definition simulcast of FSN featuring high-definition programming such as live sporting events. Usually, each regional channel has its own separate HD feed.


also DirecTV's Root Sports is in 720p.

EI & Sportspack Sub.

I was blacked out as well in Dallas for about 30-40 minutes (Pirates at Dodgers). I checked the usual things before watching another gm, MLB Network, Roots Pitt, etc. Sometime around 9:40pm Dallas time, I re-checked the EI channels and both feeds were on.

ROOT Sports Pittsburgh had the Flyers/Penguins game which went into overtime. The game ended at about 10:30PM ET, so their coverage of the Pirates/Dodgers game would have started at around that time. I believe there was a basketball game on Prime Ticket that prevented the Dodgers feed from being available, so there was a period of time at the start of the game when nobody was televising it.

also DirecTV's Root Sports is in 720p.


Root Sports is 720p? Then how come Root Sports Rocky Mountain or at least CO Rockies home games look and sound great but every other FSN (also 720p) look horrible? Just my thoughts. :nono2:

720 in itself is fine. Other issues (bandwidth, equipment, etc.) that affect signal.

Thanks, I forgot about that Penguins gm last night and I don't follow the NBA much.

Nice, the CSN Philly feed is on for the Phillies. EI has been great so far this year. The guide data has been spot on.

You wouldn't lose anything going to ulitmate but if you wanted to drop it after 30 days you would go to the new Choice Xtra which would not have the same channels you have now.

If MLB would get their heads out of their asses in regards to the Fox Saturday Baseball debacle then MLB EI on Directv would be perfect. They are doing the best with what they got. I love having both home and away feeds including CSN Philly and SportsNet.
