It won't record if BBCA goes live Wednesday though, so remember to delete your current one and set a new one once it goes live.

Yeah, I'm waiting for Wednesday to set/re-set my records on BBCA. Dunno if it is necessary, but I'd prefer to have what I want rather than be cursing D* and the universe later.


While I'm sure the pilot episode will be re-aired, there's no harm in going ahead and setting one up in case BBCA is delayed a week.

Will double check, thanks.


No problem! :)

I'm sorry... It is super late and I'm blanking on things.

I don't think it would record even if BBCA were delayed a week, and one was to go ahead set it up.

It's been almost two years since I had a similar experience, and with being tired, I simply got confused.

Sorry...

I wish Directv would add beIN SPORT 2HD and the 8 other beIN SPORT SD channels AKA beIN SPORT MAX. I know why in SD only. :nono2:


Those are sports channels for the French market and aren't fed to the United States whatsoever. BeIN Sport has a huge sports market in France. Completely different set of channels though.

According to Wikipedia, beIN chose France because of the lack of sports channels there.

The owner of BEIN is a topcat from Qatar, the same owner of Paris Saint Germain. He is investing a lot of dough in soccer and wants to have the best team in Europe.

I have no interest in European soccer but ,for those who like it, this channel can be a real treat.

Nice to see BBCAmerica in HD. It's a decent channel, but SD turns me off and I rarely watch anything that is not HD. Ion East is a good one too! I wonder if the day will come, if Directv adds any of the subchannels from some of the markets, like THIS, AntennaTV, RPT and MeTV. I'd love to see all of those old sitcoms, that TV Land and Nick At Night, used to show.

As travelfan1 reported in beIN thread, 426-1 and 620-1 now are up as notices for movement of Gol to 456 and 627.

Personally, I would have moved the Fox College Sports Alternate channel on 623 and moved it there.

There is some shuffling in the lower 600s that should be done including better grouping of BTN alternate channels. But I posted it to show things are happening. If you use favorites like I do, it may not get noticed.

I guess that means we won't be getting the Pétanque Channel.

Oh yeah... the 600s are a mess.

Between the weird channel numberings, the CIG issues (more on that in a minute), and all those freaking alternate channels, I have remind myself which of the channels I'm actually able to receive (I don't subscribe to the sports package). However, considering that with with three moves, DirecTV could easily place the channels focusing on Soccer to be in the same lump and have FCS Alternate be in a more logical position as well, that they would go ahead and do that. :rolleyes:

As for the CIG issues I said I was getting back to, I'd LOVE to believe that DirecTV moving GolTV might actually allow them to correct the CIG issue with that channel. It's annoying that the system knows that I don't get GolTV channel 426, and the SD version of 620, but thinks I get the HD version. However, the most likely outcome is that I will continue to have the false results on GolTV HD #620, and gain a false reading on BeIN Sports. :rolleyes:

I guess that means we won't be getting the Pétanque Channel.

Do we have anything definite about tomorrow [Wednesday, Aug. 15]?

I am anticipating a contract agreement allowing DirecTV to carry the brand-new Pac-12 Network.
