    Just record it from channel 663, which is FS Detroit. That's the easiest way to guarantee you're getting the Detroit feed.

    It comes on during games if you're a MLBEI sub.

    The FSN Detroit (663) will come on for the game? That is awesome! Am I reading that correctly? Channel 663 will come on during the game?

    Also, the feeds go Away then Home feed. For example:
    Yankees @ Boston (NY feed) Channel 777-1
    Yankees @ Boston (Bos feed) Channel 778-1

    I hope your right, i'll try it for tomorrows game. When I had Dish it was nice, they would have both feeds in the package, one from one town and the other from the other town. Of course no NFL or MLB.

    I'm not sure if all the RSNs are turned on for everyone who subscribes to MLB EI (I think they are), but I am certain that sigma is right about the positioning of the visitor vs. home feeds on the EI channels.

    The visiting team's feed will always be first in the channel sequence, and the home team's feed will follow. Example: visiting team Channel 720; home team Channel 721.

    I normally set FSDHD 663 to record but will also record one or both of the MLBEI feeds just to make sure I get a good recording.
    Don't think I'll bother watching today's game though. :grin:

    Thanks for the tip i will check that out!

    Great idea, just to make sure.

    I'm hoping the same rules apply to the NHL CI, as they do for the MLB-EI:)

    As mentioned for any sports premium, you can tune in the teams RSN during a game to get the correct feed. Also, you can check the MLB EI schedule on the D* website and they specify which feed is on each channel [Link].

    The MLB EI schedule on D*'s website only goes up to September 30th.

    Good point, usually you can determine the feed from the schedule.

    Actually, if you put your zip code in and click view, it shows the October schedule.
