I wouldn't be surprised if the NHL won't allow that. Did MLB allow this during the season or was it included in the mlb package? For as much as you pay for the sports packages they should include the mobile versions as well.

Well, I've gotten a couple of phone messages from Laila at the president's office, and they appear to be working on it.  They have asked me for some particulars (were the recordings manual or autorecord, etc...)  At least they aren't just telling me it can't be done, too bad.  Maybe there will be some progress soon.  I will post if there is.  In the meantime, it has gotten back to last season's functionality.  In other words, rather than transcoding 30 minutes of the 3 hour recording, it won't transcode any anymore.

I think it is getting worse. I recorded the afternoon game Saturday on NHLN (Canucks @ Penguins). Recorded fine and I can play it back.  But it won't transcode. Gets down to under 10 minutes and then starts the process over again. 

 

Last season the games on NBC, NHLN, NBCSN or my local RSN could be transcoded and transferred to a GenieGo device. 

 

So Islesfan, keep us advised.  But I'm pretty sure at this point even if they got this fixed, I won't subscribe to this season.

Still haven't heard back. It had looked hopeful, but not so much now. Still, they haven't said no yet, so I hold out some hope.

It could be a coincidence, but I again set the Isles game from last night to transcode (like I've done with all the games this season) and woke up this morning to find it ready to download to my iPad.  I've got the whole game and I've been able to watch it (well half of it so far, but I'll finish it on the commute home later).  It recorded the TSN feed (ch 771 or 772, I don't know which one).  Perhaps its fixed?

 

I've also noticed that my Genie, since canceling the recording of the Isles v. Coyotes a couple of weeks ago, has taken to recording all feeds of the Islanders at once now.  I get home to find three or four recordings of the same game.  Ch 635, 771, 772, et al.  I'm not complaining, its actually kinda cool to have my pick of feed to watch, and with 5 tuners it never cancels anything else to record all that.  Oddly, however, the Genie Go only offers one of those recordings each time, and I don't know which one it is until after it is transcoded.

Not only is it not fixed, but the problem is spreading.  I recorded the Nets season opener on Thursday night, and it transcoded just fine, but when I watched it, I only had the first half.  This was on the NBA Network, which I never had problems with last year.  Has anyone seen this problem with NHL Network or NBC SPorts?
