Yes, I am getting this also. The way I understand it is the only time we will see programming on 647-1 is when they are broadcasting a game in HD.


Ok thanks - wasn't sure because a couple of people reported at least one infomercial. Maybe that was just a test signal. Hopefully they'll put something on soon :)

I was kinda hoping to see the Blues game show up in HD. Kinda sucks that they only air some of the games in HD. Oh well, at least the channel is live.

Josh,

Thanks for your e-mail. We expect DirecTV to add FSN Midwest in the
next several months, if not sooner. And we will televise select,
although not all, Royals games in HD next season. We'll set our HD
schedule a couple of months before the start of the season, and expect
to show 20-25% of our Royals games in HD.

FSN Midwest


WORD!! Go Royals!!

But, will we still get the other games even though their not gonna be in HD? I hope we still get as many games as we did with RSTN......

Shouldn't there be some college football games in HD as well? Like the game last week between MU and OK? Instead of having to pray that channel 95 would carry the game, sounds like it would now be a given that it would be on 647-1 correct?

Ummmmm, I'd like to know where MSG Network is ... I see the logo on the D* promos on the internet and in the commercials.

Praying to the D* Gods to please bring us MSG in HD!

The Guide said that the Oklahoma - Iowa St. game was to be in HD on this channel 647. Yet the broadcast was not in HD even though the guide and program info show the HD symbol. Anyone know why? I called DirectTV twice and they have no idea.

Question: due to the lack of HD Blues games on FSN midwest the rest of the year, I was wondering if we'd be able to tune into blues games in HD on other regional HD channels?

For example, on Oct 25th the Blues play at Columbus. According to the schedule (they wouldn't let me post the link b/c I have less than 5 posts, but just go to the schedule on the official Blues NHL Website), the game is on FSN Midwest, but is not in HD. However, the same game is on FSN Ohio, and is being broadcast in HD. So, will I be able to tune into the FSN Ohio HD broadcast and watch the game? I'd gladly exchange home announcers for HD picture....

I'm not sure, but it may be possible if you have NHL Center Ice. Having Sports Pack will not give you access. I know we in St.Louis would only get the FSN Midwest feed.

Being in SW Mo. may work for you....

Hmm, I don't have Center Ice. Thanks for the feedback though. I guess I will find out tomorrow! Will let you know if it was a success watching the FSN Ohio HD broadcast

Great freaking channel. Other FSN show national HD programming and this one stays dark. Excellent addiiton. They should name it the dark channel.

The Blues game is on 647, but 647-1 is dark. I just spoke to DTV support, who said they are "experiencing technical difficulties that should be resolved by Saturday". Not sure if I should believe him; guess I will wait until Saturday.

Tonights game is not supposed to be in HD. The next game in HD is Nov.21 vs Det. There are only 8 HD games left on FSN Midwest this year (Let's hope for more games next year). 647-1 looks to be a part time games only channel.

The way I understand it is that if there is no HD being broadcast by FSN Midwest and then there will be nothing on that channel. Tonights Blues game is not in HD. But, this weekend there is Football games in HD and those will be on 647-1. At least we will get all HD games now on 647-1. FSN Midwest is not a full time HD station right now.

I see they added a HD Blues game. I see that the Nov 1 at Minn. will be in HD on 647-1. It is showing in the guide. :dance07:

the Cincinnati sub feed of FSN Ohio shows Reds games and I believe Blue Jackets games. I would guess that if/when FSN Ohio HD lights up, a game time only feed for the Cincinnati feed will pop in too.

I'm not getting any audio out of the center channel on FSNMW-HD for the Kansas-Nebraska game. My A/V receiver indicates that it's getting a 5.1 DD signal, but all of the audio is coming from the 2 front speakers - nothing from the center channel. Also appear to be having audio sync issue as well. Anyone else seeing this?:confused:

FSN must have a real idiot on the Kansas-Nebraska game HD switch. This HD production is a joke.

I know this is a part time station. But, why doesn't Directv put the pre-game show on channel 647-1 when it is in HD?

I'm not at home right, so can someone tell me if the Missouri-Colorado game is on in HD? 647-1 is not coming up on remote booking, so I have the SD version recording right now.
