    Had a mix-up with blackouts in Tri-Cities/TN area for last Saturday evening's FOX national game. We received the Pirates/Nationals game on local FOX affiliate (Fox 39). However, the Reds' game feed was blacked out, and Pirates/Nationals feed was available on MLB EI. We are in both Braves and Reds territory, but the Reds' feed wasn't televised locally and still blacked out.

    Someone must've entered that the local game would be the Reds game. Odd that it wasn't as Fox usually does local teams over non-local. The blackout had nothing to do with team territory. It was supposed to be based on the local Fox game.

    Las Vegas
    Saturday, May 31.

    For some reason, the Las Vegas FOX affiliate is showing Rays v Sox, instead of Bucs v Dodgers.
    I have no idea why the Dodgers would not be the preferred "regional" team.

    So, you can probably guess what happened...

    On EI, the Rays game is up on 745, but the Dodgers game is blacked out on 746.

    I'm sure this is communication problem and not a blackout issue, but still....

    Tonight I had the Rays/Red Sox OTA. Both games were open on EI. I was very surprised.

    I was a little surprised that the MLBEI channels for the Fox games didn't "activate" until 10 minutes past the hour. Guess they really wanted us to watch the "pregame" show on our local affiliate.

    FOX assigned Bucs v Dodgers to the Vegas affiliate, KVVU.

    http://506sports.com/mlb.php?yr=2014&wk=2

    KVVU chose to switch to Rays v Sox..

    I have no idea how EI or FOX can manually handle those switches in local markets for EI blackout purposes.

    Same thing may happen next week. KVVU has already posted Yanks v Royals, and I'm guessing FOX originally assigned A's v O's to Vegas.

    Another Saturday of FOX Baseball in Las Vegas...

    And another week of miscommunication.

    FOX assigned Yanks - Royals to KVVU.

    http://506sports.com/mlb.php?yr=2014&wk=3

    And that's the game they are showing.

    And EI?

    743 is showing Sox - Tigers.
    744 is showing Yanks - Royals.
    745 is blacked out for A's - O's.

    3 Saturdays of FOX Saturday Baseball, and 3 Saturdays of errors with EI.
    This should not be that difficult.

    Any other markets having issues?

    All FOX Broadcasts are on for me. My Area is getting the Yankees at Royals game on my local FOX Station BUT it is on my Extra Innings Channels as well. I am very pleased.

    Anybody else not seeing the Blue Jays feed of the Twins-Blue Jays game right now? Mine just has the DirecTV logo for some reason. Wonder why?

    When is the last time you did a resend of authorization. Most DirecTV logo "problems" are fixed with that.

    When MLB Network has regional coverage, is there a way to find out in advance which game will be available in my area?

    On Wednesday 6/25, the Cardinals/Rockies game is not being televised here in Denver (ROOT Sports only does 150 games, and this is one of the 12 they decided to skip). Since I'm in Rockies territory, I won't be able to get the game on EI. However, it is one of the two games MLB Network is showing regionally. In past years, MLB Network broadcasts of Rockies games were available if, and only if, there was no local TV coverage of the game. Whenever that's happened before, it was a national broadcast, not a regional one, so I don't know if I will be able to get the game this way or not.

    I need to know in advance for DVR scheduling, since I may not be able to catch the game live. If the MLB broadcast will be available here, I will set the recording on 213 (or 213-1, if it's the secondary feed). Otherwise, I may set a recording on the MLB Mix Channel (which is never blacked out). I suppose I could do both, but I'd like to keep tuners open for other things if I can.

    I'm not going to assume it will be available via MLB.TV. I was already burned once when a Rockies game was mysteriously unavailable as an archive to DirecTV subs (this was early in the season). I don't know if they ever fixed the issue since or not, where one game each day was not being authorized.

    I've only seen games involving my home team get blocked, and usually just if you want to watch the non-home teams feed. I live in Orioles territory, and hate having to listen to those bozos while watching a game. Also, if it's available on MLBN, ESPN or is a Fox Saturday special game it will get blocked on the 700's and you have to put up with those announcers as well.

    The answer is yes. Asterisk indicates game is available in the team's home market. Should be on 213, as it is the first game listed

    Did they ever resolve the one game per day not being viewable? I haven't used it in a while but tried to watch a game on roku tonight and got the 'you must upgrade your account' message...all other games work and the game in question is viewable on my PC
