I had heard rumors that she might go to KDKA since they weren't renewing John Steigerwald's contract. Guess that isn't happening anymore. Once the contract is up, I hope FSN signs him.

Since his radio show & all others on the man station "The Zone" has been cancelled...I wouldn't be surprised if KDKA would have a renewed interest in him. Personally, I would love to see him on FSNP since I am able to receive those broadcasts.

I doubt it. This split was announced awhile ago, before he received his radio show, so I don't think that will play into it.

IMO KDKA wants to get away from his 'controversial' style of telling the truth because that only upsets their sponsors.

Update on Trenni: I didn't know this, but Fox Sports is a partner in the Big Ten Network so I guess its possible she could be on loan for the short-term.

Anyone know when the Guide will be updated with programming for this channel? Or is this up to FSNP?

Good question. I tried to set up tonights game to record. The game is listed on channel 628 but which channel 628 is the default? The SD version or the HD version?

The only one you can record right now is the SD version of 628 off the Guide data. The HD Guide data only says 'To Be Announced'. Until they update the Guide, you can't record the game on HD tonight without making it a manual recording.

Anyone with NHL Center Ice see tonight's game listed on the HD sub? I set it to record last night and it was only on the SD station, but hoping that with FSNP now in HD, more and more Pens games are shown on CI in HD.


man, I really hope we get tonights game in HD. FSP is broadcasting it in HD, hopefully we'll be able to get it in HD. Here's for hoping.

Since the guide is showing "To Be Announced" instead of programming, I doubt anyone is getting anything.

647-1 and 628 are both "To Be Announced" for me with no content on 628 and just garbled sound on 647-1. Is there a reboot in my future?
Wish list of channels for D*: C-Span 3; BBC World News; Sky News International; CBC Newsworld; France24; EuroNews; Eurosportnews; Setanta Sports News; ABC News 24 (Australia); Australia Network (soon to be ABC Asia Pacific); Al Jazeera English; Russia Today; NHK World; DW-TV -- Heck, how about an entire English-language international tier so I don't have to keep switching to my Roku?

For me SD (FSPI) 628 comes in fine, but black screen for the HD Version. English Premiere Soccer is on right now with the SD version.
DTV & NFLST since 97 at least, not looked back yet...

Hopefully CI will broadcast that feed for all us ex-Pittsburghers (all 500,000 of us).
So happy I could call Arnold Slick from Turtle Creek.


Just was at an outdoor Vogues concert in Bedford this past weekend. For those that don't know the Vogues - they were a great vocal recording group from the 1960's and the original members were all from Turtle Creek.

-----------------
Maybe just speculation on my part.....Channel will be only for when H/D versions of games are on only....kind of like channels 94-95....maybe the net
only has few/partime coverage in H/D...reasons could be anything to saving bandwidth to contract obligations...I see FSN Pittsburg is now also listed as
a sub-channel.
