    Is anyone able to view Masters 4K programming on Channel 106?

    Masters 4K 15 & 16 appear in the program guide, but when I select the channel the only thing I am able to view is the Directv logo.

    I have no problem viewing 4K programming on Channel 104.

    I have refreshed the signal to the box, and have done a red button reset. The problem still persists.

    The only 4K channels currently displayed in my program guide are 104/106/107.
    Channel 105 no longer appears in my guide.

    I tried to view the channel multiple times this afternoon.

    Does channel 105 still appear as a 4K channnel in the program guide?

    I heard the Masters could be affected by weather this coming weekend especially for Sunday.

    It shows "live4k" and "105" in the upper right corner.

    I watched it starting about 4PM CST this afternoon with no issues. I set my cold bottle of beer on my fat belly while watching the 4K HDR picture and couldn't be happier! This occurred after a REALLY long day at work!

    You may need to toggle channels you get (receive) on your receiver after the upgrade in the last week, which included changes to the 4K channels. I had to do the same when it changed a couple of days ago.

    or add the new channels to your favorites if you use favorites.
    Both channels came on late I assume because there were no golfers on those holes until later than they expected.

    Yes, 105 is in my guide, along with the other 4K channels. There was some sort of golf show on yesterday.

    In summary , DirecTV prevents users from using sling box due to HDCP. 4k boxes only have hdmi out , no component out.

    But anyways back to golf discussion

    You can get around that by using an powered HDMI splitter. That oddly will make the DirecTV box think that a signal is being fed to an TV even if the TV/AVR/etc is turned off. You can then use an 10 pin component cable to hook up to an Slingbox with no issues. I can confirm this works on the current C51 wired client.

    Okay now back to golf.
