    :mad: Well after a three Saturday nights without problems DirecTV has done it again cutting off Hockey Night in Canada right in the middle of Don Cherry talking during the post game show after the first game.

    Come on guys!!!

    It looks like the progress we have made is slipping again.

    This is REALLY upsetting!!!

    They need to leave the channel on after the 1st game of HNIC.The 2nd one starts just after 10PM EST usually anyway.

    Do they have a human sitting somewhere cutting the feed? If so, apparently he's not acquainted with SatelliteRacer--type professionalism.

    Is anybody else getting a "Multi-switch problem" error on this game? I am...only on this channel...and I don't have a multi-switch in the first place.

    INTERESTING FACT
    during the "off time" turned my other set to our cable which has CBC Toronto and when it came on I noticed that the game clock on CBC cable was 8 seconds ahead of the D* signal - it sure take long to receive and then send the picture

    That's normal with all DTV channels. I don't know why. I can be on the phone with a friend who has DISH and even then there's a difference.

    And my multi-switch error mysteriously disappeared. We have the game now.

    I wish D* would get their act together w/ these CBC games.

    BTW, nice suit Don Cherry had on tonite.

    I think the folks in the "control room" are instructed after 9:30 EST if they don't see player skating to flick the switch. Secondly, why is Hockey Night In Canada not in HD!!!:mad:

    Agreed - it sure is upsetting to see the beginning of the game and the CBC in-HD logal appears, but we are stuck watching the cloudy SD. C'mon... now, get this fixed already.

    I agree...

    I watched the NESN broadcast last night between Montreal and Boston in HD and they didn't have a problem getting an HD feed out of Canada into the US.

    If NESN can arrange to do it why can't Directv get it done with any and all of the Canadian HD hockey feeds ?

    With all the fiber optic networks accross Canada and the US I doesn't seem to be that hard to get done, especially by such a large corporation like Directv.

    D* also cut off the first ever HD Sharks game we could watch on FSNBA-HD at 9:30 pm (PST) on 654-1 and on the NHLCI channel that was mirroring right at 10 pm (PST). The game went into OT and I had to watch the shoot-out on the SD channel. Obviously this was an automatic shutoff and nobody was minding the store at D*.

    Can we get a hockey programming sub-forum for DirecTV?

    Yes...it's black screen with about 4 minutes to go in a 3-3 game !

    Not only did they not show the complete 2nd game but the guide states they would show the post game also.

    Please get this fixed for my $169 I am getting ripped off.

    I have been trying to get this game for about 20 minutes and keep getting a black screen as well. Why does DirecTV have such a hard time with CBC? You tune it in and then you don't touch anything until After Hours signs off. How hard is it to NOT TOUCH ANYTHING???

    I just lost the last 10 minutes of the Hawks game. The supervisor didn't know why. I also complained that I couldn;t view the Chicago feed on 640 and he said I shouldn't ever be able to do that. I should only see the CI channels. I told himI have watched the regional sports network games with CI without the sportspack. He told me that was impossible. This is so frustrating!
