    The Purdue game went long, I have to imagine this is a BTN problem. I would be happy DirecTV had everything available, even if the guide was off for a bit.

    Also, Nebraska is now on three channels.

    Now Nebraska is on all the channels. They switched off the Illinois game and put it on 615 as well. Come on DirecTV or BTN!

    Now both 611 and 615 are showing Nebraska. Illinois is nowhere to be found. Someone needs to get their act together and soon!

    BTN's twitter account is going stir crazy. They said they contacted DirecTV to get it fixed.

    Given all the overflow channels, not sure why that would make a difference

    Not so fast. There are various reports of problems on cable as well. Sounds like it was a BTN issue.

    BTN seemed to doubled up the alt feeds but 609 / 609-1 was unused Some cable systems do not have all the HD over flow feeds for BTN.

    Next time BTN should put 1 game on each feed to give more of a buffer zone.

    Dish customers didn't have the issue. So who knows.

    This is why I asked the question two days ago about the channel lineup. I ended up recording the wrong game, then caught the game for a half an hour live, and then lost it for no apparent reason. This disgrace had better not repeat itself next week, PLEASE!
