    So Sunday 3/3 7:30 i got ready to watch the New York Rangers hockey game like i have been doing for 15+ years on DirecTv. At 7:30 my screen went black said game not avail for me searching for other channels. I Called DirecTv talked to a nice guy, he told me even though i live in northern NJ, the game is being blacked out for me cause it is not sold out, but i called a friend a few black away from me that has Fios he was watching it no problem on MSG HD. I did notice a spare hd dvr i have tuned into the center ice channel but it was not HD. So was this just a rare glitch, or ever game not sold out i will no longer be able to see in HD ? If so i might as well just switch to Fios, but i hope it doesn't have to come to that.

    I think it was a glitch. They seemed to fix it, as later on that night I was able to watch the game on MSG HD. I have seen this happen on rare occasion (for example, they inadvertently blacked out a SEC Network game on MSG, even though I am in market).

    It was a glitch, the SD channel was working fine but for some reason the HD one was not. It was corrected part way through the game.

    That game was one big glitch from Directv's standpoint.

    The Center Ice schedule said "Sabres feed" and "Rangers feed" both on 776 (and 776-1). The guide had the game listed on 775 and 776. I picked one hoping to get the Sabres feed and got the Rangers feed.

    From the CI schedule:

    Buffalo Sabres at New York Rangers (Sabres Feed) 7:30 pm 776 776-1
    Buffalo Sabres at New York Rangers (Rangers Feed) 7:30 pm 776
