I am on the phone with a technician about 95
People need to call in for it to be a known issue so it can work through the system and get someone to turn 95 back on for hockey hd - I think someone fell asleep.
When I tuned to 95 at 7pm - it was lpga golf in sd and then went to the logo

My guy actually said he was talking to another csr that was having the same discussion with another person = thats pretty cool

Anyway - he said there had to be 5 people to call in with this issue in order for it to be a known issue for them to get to work on it

My genius CSR told me that even thought Vs. is a national channel and I can get the SD feed and I have the CI package that I can't get the game in HD because Detroit is not in my local market. Of course this hasn't stopped me from getting the HD feed all year and last year.

They really have no clue over there do they?

So much for being "A" list.

Sounds like I need to find a way to get a Star Choice dish...

Thanks for the update, I wish it were better news. I would have liked to see Detroit in HD tonight on 95.

Can anyone explain how this is good for DirecTV and why they might make such a decision? I could possibly understand if they were showing anything else on 95. As a hockey fan, I am all too aware that the ratings stink. I could even deal with this just a little bit if they were showing baseball instead. But showing nothing in place of a game they could show in HD and likely show for no additional cost?

How does this make sense?

Can anyone tell me if this on HD on Comcast, Dish Network or any other US system?

I just got off the phone with a CSR. She said that the HD programming in D* was cancelled. Last night the first game started late (because of the overlap from the MLB game) and tonight it was a cancellation of the NHL game, even though nothing else is on. Let's all make a lot of calls so that they get it straightened out. The more calls and more demands, the sooner they will start getting this correct.

They're not even showing baseball tonight in HD apparently.

Not DirecTV's fault at all.

VsGolf is the HD channel for Versus. They are showing Golf instead of the hockey game.

This was an issue with *all* providers. Dish, DirecTV and cable. They can't show the hockey game if the stupid channel is showing golf.

InHD *is* showing the Wings game in HD on some cable systems.

Its a new channel only a few months old...During the Day hours it will have golf programming. Past 7pm it will have Versus programming. It will be an HD channel. D* has an agreement to carry it after the birds go up.

Might be some, but they will always have to give for baseball, unfortunately. Tonight, they had a nice D* logo complete with elevator music for the Vs. HD game on 95. I think the logo was in HD, though.

Guess we will have to suffer, without much HD hockey playoff games, this year. I am sure once the two new birds are flying, bandwidth is not going to be an issue, for next year. I got both CI and EI, but would like to see more CI HD this time of the year. After Lord Stanley's Cup has been presented, then I will switch into baseball mode.
