Where are the ALCS 4K games listed in the Program Guide ? All I see is "TBA" on Ch. 106
That's awesome. Never thought I would see four 4k events at the same time so soon. Wish I had a genie 2 so I could record 2 at the same time.
I see channel 109 now
And 106 still not loaded but it says channel 106 in the messages

I also had to tune to 206 to fix the frame rate issue last night. I'm still on 1263 though - 65" LG C7 OLED.
It's time for DirecTV to give us a 4K SportsMix channel. lol
To add to the earlier post about ESPN's 4k college schedule - Engadget is reporting: "The National Championship Game will get a 4K feed too."
Watch ESPN's first native 4K game Saturday -- if you have DirecTV
OK, so on Saturday night we're going to get:
Ch. 105: USC v. Notre Dame (NBC broadcast) 1080p Upconversion
Ch. 106: ALCS Game 1- NY Yankees v. Houston (FOX Broadcast) Native 4K (2160p) ???
Ch. 107: Florida v. LSU (ESPN Broadcast) Native 4K (2160p) ???
Ch. 109: Nebraska v. Minnesota (FOX Broadcast) 1080p Upconversion
I really hope the ALCS game and the ESPN game are in native 4K, they need to stop with all these up conversions.
I have a HR54 AND A C61K, I know I can only watch 1 game live but how many 4K channels can I record ? If I don't watch any games live, might not be home, can I record 2 or 3 games for later?
I could be wrong about this, but I believe that with your setup you can view/record only one 4k channel at a time.
To clarify, if you are watching one 4k channel you cannot record another one at the same time.
Update to your question - I just tried (on my HR54) to set two 4k recordings at the same time and it would not let me.
Thanks. I should of thought of that. Guess I'll have to chose with one to record.
Related but maybe a dumb question...but if you record a 4K channel is it only using up one tuner? I ask because I had a 4K recording going recently and also recording another non 4K channel and when I tried to change channels on the C61K it gave me a message that I would have to cancel one of the recordings.
Some bummer news: Ken Ross over at AVS Forum posted this morning that he had taken a look at the Fox equipment list for the ALCS games and that all the cameras were HD non-4K cameras. Except one that was for specialty use. So it looks like another 1080p up conversion for the ALCS series.
We're now down to just one game left-- the ESPN one-- to see if that one will be in true 4K.
I’m not shocked. FOX always chooses the cheapest path they can. When everyone else went Hi Definition they went 480p widescreen for years.
Even if they were 4K cameras like at the football games that wouldn't mean the game is produced in 4K. The entire production chain from end to end has to be 4K. That's a lot of money, and they may not want to invest that until the equipment reaches end of life.
Why so much hate on fox sports ?
I don't see any other broadcaster doing 2 events in " 4K " in one day.
Fox did the entire Womens and mens world cup in "4k"
With the exception of NBC universal who did the winter olympics (on delay, but was still only 1 broadcast not 2)
I dont see any other broadcaster who is heavily invested in 4k or produces as much "4k" content as fox sports
Are they perfect no , but they produce the most events in "4k" so I appreciate that they are trying to get the most "4k" content out there .
Fox sports has broadcast "almost" every sport in " 4k ": nfl, mlb, nba (via fsn), golf, ncaa basketball, ncaa football, soccer ,
I think att/warner media/tnt did 2 "4k" NCAA basketball games at the same time but I have not noticed any other 4k events from Warner since march madness

The AT&T 4k page has been updated to include MLB and the new ESPN 4k broadcast info:

I’m really pumped up for tonight. Get to see my Yankees in 4K. Four different sporting events in 4K simultaneously. Wow. We do need a 4K mix channel now. Excited that ESPN is now in the game.
Totally agree dtv757...I think we should give Fox Sports a ton of credit for pushing the envelope on 4K sports production. In fact I’m betting that ESPN’s 4K efforts are a direct response to the trailblazing Fox has been doing the past couple of years. Hopefully all of this will pressure NBC and CBS to step it up as well.
BTW where is the bandwidth coming from on DirecTV’s end to pass four 4K events at the same time?
Cut back on PPV channels.
