It all depends what part of Minnesota or Wisconsin you live in. I live in SE Wisconsin and get Channel 642 Fox North-Wisconsin, and get Channel 641 but not when they broadcast Twins, Gopher Football and Basketball, do get other Minnesota sports. I know if you live in SW Wisconsin and have the Sports pack you get Minnesota, Wisconsin and Comcast Chicago. So it depends if you have the sports pack and where you live. You can check your zipcode on D* to see,

Not sure if this was in response to me but I should have been clear saying I have gotten all FSN north HD feeds 727'd on me on channel 96 this season. The 3 hockey games and 1 hoops game that i was aware of. What happened tonight was similar but first time it happened on 641 and that I got a 721 message.



Ah! Got it. Sorry I was confused.

If you subscribe to the sports pack then you would get them all anyhow right?!

I suppose that's the way they would have me look at the NBALP since the sports pack would be a 'cheap' way for me to get many games?

What's the point of the sports pack including the RSN's if you don't get live games?

According the the wolves website you should see a HD game on the 28th against Dallas.

As for the Wild, maybe New Years Eve? The schedule layout on this site sucks...

Does anybody else find the Twins HD broadcast full of video noise? Baseball games on Fox or ESPN look much better.

No, I had experienced intermittent audio issues a month or so ago but the recent broadcasts have been just fine.

I thnk they look grainy in comparison but that's probably due to being indoors?

Is that what it is? Just a light level thing, with the cameras set to higher sensivity, and hence more noise?

Will Gopher hockey be HD on 641-1 this year? Saw the MN/WI game on BTN HD last year and it was sweet... until they cut in with that *^%@!# press conference.

Does this channel broadcast in DD 5.1? My receiver indicates that it is via my cable system but not via D*
Can anyone confirm?
Thanks
Perhaps I Misremembered.

Well, Firstly it would help if we knew your location. Secondarily, Not sure what your getting the Twins on the radio has to do with anything. Tertiarily, Why did you respond if you didn't have the answer to my quite simple question?
Perhaps I Misremembered.

From my recollection, I only get Dolby Pro Logic and not 5.1 on my FSN on DTV. I will try to catch the next evening game and post back if it is different.
