    Your favorite team of the #6 ranked sport that you watch? ;) Although I'm finding the rankings vary [link].

    Is it ahead if Nascar and golf in the USA?

    Also, good news. The msg hd games are back on the directv online guide. With both today's games being broadcast on msg hd and the guide showing future msg hd games, it looks as though we will be back to receiving msg hd. I wonder what happened?

    That's great! Now we just need HD from Canada, and especially HD from my beloved Flyers and CSN Philly and we will be all set!!!

    Those are his personal sports watching rankings, not from national ratings.

    Not bad numbers for a Thursday night game going against the return of the prime time network shows

    Don't hold your breath on this one. Even though we did get several Philly csn hd feeds last year, and at least during the playoffs, several were dual feeds. The Canadian feeds, that might be a while.

    It is not on any network so you are watching what is being shown on the big screen at the game.

    not suprising, they only use the CSN feed only if the other team doesnt broadcast, and since Directv doesnt show canadien HD games your stuck with SD

    I like how the Dtv CI schedule page shows the game (Van-Phi) as being on, in HD, on 770-1.. I guess that's just for the "browsers" who dont intend to actually tune in and "see" if the games are actually in HD or not.. From looking at their CI schedule, it appears 99% of the games are shown in HD.. Pretty weak..

    If you want HD hockey tonight your only choice is Versus.

    I wanted to see the Vancouver game, but not in SD.

    Those Columbus and Colorado players are all short and fat. Better put their games in HD to make them look normal, or put them all on diets. :lol:

    I can't believe I'm watching the Jumbo-Tron feed from the Columbus vs Colorado game tonight.
    I just watched a man dressed as a cowboy race down the ice in shoes against a man dressed as an indian. Then they had to try to score from center ice. I think the cowboy won.

    I understand this is a Versus national exclusive window.
    Altitude (Avalanche's RSN) website says they cannot televise tonight's game
    due to an exclusive contractual agreement between Versus and the NHL.
    Is this something we can expect every Wednesday night this season?

    did something change with the Scoreguide and NHL Center Ice? when i bring it up, it's not showing all of the Center Ice channels for me, only some. i get 'Check Local Listings" for a game that's not blacked out, but if I check the channels in the main guide, i can watch it just fine...

    also, is there a reason that canadian feeds are always SD for US NHLCI viewers? why can't we get HD feeds of CBC, TSN, etc?

    The Scoreguide has been acting strange lately. Some of the baseball scores were a day behind over the weekend. Someone must be asleep at the wheel.

    It has been rumored here, in the past, that DirecTV doesn't have the equipment to receive the Canadian games in HD. I have not seen it in writing anywhere, other than posted here through the rumor mill.

    In the past, NHL Network has broadcast HNIC in HD. And a number of the Stanley Cup playoff repeats from this past summer were from the CBC and in HD. So I don't think this is an equipment issue.
