The high-school (middle or elementary school?) dropouts that either DirecTV or FSN has working the switcher board FINALLY got things swapped around, and the game is now on it's proper channel (651-1).

These people are being watched VERY closely up in this part of the country due in part to some of the bu** over the Sonics.

I believe that is the reason why it is blacked out for us. They have the wrong game coming in on this channel. Maybe it will change when the other game ends??


I was right, Rays vs Twins game is over and the game is back on 651-1.

Then it is probably a bandwidth issue. Just not enough capacity to show all the feeds on separate channels.

Thanks guys!

I actually called DTV and was told I couldn't get the game because of the MLB package. Needless to say I wasn't happy with this so I was looking for FSN's phone number to complain and found my way here.

I called DTV back to tell them that I didn't appreciate being lied to that I had to have the MLB package to get the game and it was their fault that it wasn't coming through. They didn't do anything about it of course, but I felt vindicated.

GO M's!

HOly ****, it is being broadcast on 641-1


Yeppers, they have the channel mapping wrong. Oh well, at least I can now watch the game in HD.

Nice find!

Thanks DanHo!

I don't think it was a bandwidth issue at all. Sound more like a fat finger issue on the D* programming end.

Especially since the number of HD games today was/is very low. It appears to be a 'fat finger' problem with FSN as the game continues on the FSN-North feed. DirecTV simply takes the feeds from them and plops them where they are 'supposed' to be, with little (or, as we saw tonight) if any 'Adult' supervision.

This will probably continue to be the case up and until someone makes the 'Playboy' mistake (happened on some cable systems years ago) and they 'mis-route' that onto the Disney toon channel or some such wackiness.

Oh, lord. Not again. 721 message. Can anyone find another channel it may be on? Or can someone with MLBEI tell me what game they are showing on 651-1?

They cannot blame this on FSN (which is what they did a few days ago); COMCRUD has it in full HD while we sit here with SD.

FSN-NORTHWEST advertises ALL GAMES IN HD. Unless and until DirecTV makes the 651-1 channel FULL TIME (like COMCRUD!) we will apparently ALWAYS get the short-shrift.

They have the Boston/TB game on 651-1 right now. When that game is over it should switch. They are in extra innings now.

Curiously, why is that game on the 651-1 channel?Isnt that supposed to be FSNNW whenever there is a HD program on?
