    NBA.com and my understanding is that if you sub to the TV package you are automatically subbed to the broadband package at least that's how it has been.

    I am in NC and yet the Bobcats games are blacked out. I am wondering why this is since there is no NBA team aside from the Bobcats in the state.

    It shows on the guide that the Bobcats game is on FSCR #645 however when I go to the channel it tells me that it is blacked out. Is there a site that shows what games are available where?

    You probably already figured this out but you have to turn to your local RSN to watch the game. (The channel not in the 700's)

    If the game is local for you then you can't watch the game on the 700's channel.

    Has anyone been able to sign up for NBA LP Broadband? It's worked like a charm in the past but this season it won't accept my D* account number and keeps giving me an error. The free preview ends today and it will stink if I can't activate.

    I logged in fine, the only thing that was different this year instead of taking your email for a login it will ask for your account #. As I recall last year it wanted the email address of your online account with D*.

    Yeah I can't activate either yet. In the past you had to have the TV package to yet the online package and it took about a week for the NBA to have the info transferred over. Who knows they could be doing it alphabetically or numerically......slowly. What's worse I have e-billing from D* so there is no physical way I can scan my bill to email the NBA and cut/paste the billing off D*s page is a no can do as well I get an error message.

    For some reason, today all the HD feeds (e.g. 751-1) on NBA League Pass are not available. They are "greyed out" on the channel guide and when I go to the channel I get the message that I am not subscribed. The SD channels do come in, though. Anyone else having this issue?

    FYI all is fine at my end. If you have sportspack you can try those channels.

    I think it was definately the reauthorization that did it. Just checked a receiver in another room that I didn't reauth, and the HD feeds still say "Not Authorized".

    Also, even on the reauth'd receiver, the 7##-1 channels are still not showing in the guide. But, if you goto the RSN channel, or manually punch in the 7##-1 channel, it works.

    I suspect a restart would fix the problem also.

    Just got my HD...However, I cannot record. Pressing "record" I would get a message saying "Your receiver isn't authorized to record this program".

    Thanks for the tip. Reauthorization did the trick on all my boxes.

    Yea a receiver refresh was needed tonight but after a few minutes the channels came back in the guide.

    I still can't activate NBA League Pass TV Companion though. Had to submit a ticket and attach two screen shots of my bill. Very annoying considering I'm paying for LP.

    I didn't have to reauthorize mine but it did take a day or two.

    Anyone know how we can tell which Channel is the home or away feed?
    Its nice they provide it but its kind of worthless for trying to record it because nothing tell you its the home or away feed.

    Thanks
