The first quarter of the Celts game is half over and I still have just a black screen on 620-1. Any guesses as to what's going on?

Who knows. Seems that the channel is not actually being uplinked yet, regardless of what the guide shows. Hopefully they'll get it fixed ASAP.

Ok not that I am a huge Basketball Fan but hey the Celts are off to a great start,So I figure I'll watch them in HD for an hour but I have a feeling this is like NESN all over again.:(
I tried to reboot and refresh service via D*.com but didn't work. i am not going to bother the CSR trying to keep my Hearts up.

maybe if enough people call directv and complain we can get it fixed by the next celtics home game. BTW the directv guide shows heat at celtics this friday in HD on channel 95. Also sundays game vs,magic on NBA tv channel 610-HD. hopefully next wednedays game nov.21 vs. the warriors will be in HD. belive me if i don't see this game listed in the guide as being in HD i'll be calling directv and raising heck!!

..just got off the line with D*....asked the CSR for a supervisor, she said they weren't available; the supervisor wanted her to give me an address to complain to....anyways, it was the same old line about some locations would get it, others wouldn't,etc.,etc.

I don't think 620-1 is going to happen in this area (RI)....I think it is the same old problem thats been going on ....that RI is not considered a local area, etc. As of now, a lot of RSN's (that preside in the 600's) recently added as HD channels are broadcast similar to what is happening with CSNEHD (620-1), i.e., " To Be Announced".....

So will have to scavenge for Celtics games on ESPN, TNT, NBAHD, channel 95, as before......

I wonder if anyone is getting the channel? If someone is getting the Celts game on 620-1 please post. I may be that D* has technical problems, after all this is a brand new channel.

Nah, you'll get it in RI. A lot of them should say "to be announced" as they don't have games upcoming (some teams do very few HD games). Tonight was just a glitch. CSNNE shouldn't have. Disappointing, but I'm sure they'll get it fixed.

Well, we have gotten one CSN-NE HD game this year via DirecTV (11/7 vs. Denver on channel 95).

Hopefully things get straightened out before gametime tonight.


The Atlanta game last week was available on chan 96. I just sent an e-mail, I am assuming I will be getting a canned response for it, but if you are going to launch an hd channel and NOT show the ONLY programming that channel shows in HD, it's not all that smart.

But if you've got Sports Pack, you should be able to get it, right? I couldn't get NESN HD until last month because I'm out of the restricted Boston area that had it for months, but now I have it, so now it should be the same with CSNE HD, I would think. :confused:

Absolutely. NOBODY is getting the "national" 620-1 right now -- it has nothing to do with being in RI. Obviously the channel isn't "on" yet, so I think the other poster is a little confused as to why we didn't see the game last night.

It has nothing to do with the fact we couldn't get NESN outside the Boston DMA until last month. Directv just launched it "nationally" so the rest of us in the region could get it -- which we now do -- and it's the same with CSN (even if 620-1 is only for HD games; it's not a 24/7 HD feed like NESN).

The difference is this channel simply isn't working yet, or they messed up yesterday. There's no other reason, so I'd just be patient and hope they get it ironed out asap.

Look on the schedule on Celtics.com and it should show you what channels every game is on.

Home games only on 620-1.

Away games are occasionally on NBAHD 601, TNTHD/TBSHD, or ESPN1/2HD.

All non-Nationally televised Celtics away games will be SD on 620 only, unless you have NBA league pass and can pick up the feed from the local provider elsewhere.

But hey, it's better than nothing. None of this is Direct TV's fault - mind you. Comcast SportsNet New England is a bunch of buffoons. This is the same channel that dropped the video feed with 4.5 seconds left in OT of the Celts-Raptors game at 6pm because they neglected to inform the simulcast transport carrier to extend their coverage if the game went into overtime. Morons.
