    Yes. I just record the game on the RSN and it has worked every time so far.

    I wish D* would get its act together to provide information about which feed they are showing on which channel. That info is never provide in the DVR guide, and it is only partially available online. I have asked for this in the past. Unfortunately the online guide showed only one channel for the Isles/Rangers last night with no info about which feed it was. The DVR guide showed two channels for the game, and I presumed the second one was the Rangers (home) feed, which is usually the case. Last night the first channel was the home feed. Luckily I was home and able to check and switched the recording. (Of course, the Rangers suck and lost to the Isles, but that's a separate issue.) Thursday night's game Lightning/Rangers is listed on two channels in the online guide but with only one of them being HD. That is the first channel, and since the games on MSG are all in HD, that has to be the Rangers feed. Again, they are the home team but appear to be on the first channel.

    Please, D*, either do something with the guide to make it more accurate and descriptive or put all the home/away games on the correct channels when there are dual feeds! Is this too much to ask?

    Try recording it off the RSN instead, if you want the Rangers feed its 634.

    No disrespect to those from nashville, but D* broadcasting the canucks predators game and only carrying the nashville feed sucked. I know in the past D* has carried most, if not all canucks game via their home feed. Even the PPV games. This season they seem to be really dropping the ball.

    I understand your recommendation, but my experience has been that despite having NHL CI, the RSN isn't always turned on when I try watch or record it. I think it's safer to use the NHL CI channel. The problem is knowing which to record.

    I had a problem with everything that I recorded over the weekend, not just the NHL games but things on CNBC, etc.

    You unfortunately need to reset your receiver by pressing the red button in front.

    That will fix the problem, but your recordings will be lost (not that you can watch them anyway)

    I couldn't agree more. Philly is probably my second favorite team in the league to watch and not seeing them in HD just doesn't cut it for me. In all honesty I probably wouldn't have ordered CI again if I though the beginning of the season was the last I'd see of the CSN-P HD broadcasts.

    Blame Comcast, not D* for this one. We probably will never get home HD feeds of the Flyers due to the loophole. The only reason we got that one game early on is probably because is was an away game and D* had access to the satellite feed, and it was the only network that was carrying it.

    It will be interesting to see what happens for the Sun Nov 16 game, CSN-Philly is the only network carrying the game and it is a home game. We'll probably end up with the SD feed.

    At lease you're not stuck watching the Toronto Maple Leafs games on NHL NETWORK -- ahhh....

    Last year we had a nice CBC feed... This year every Saturday night game has been on NHL network -- they run the same 3 commercials OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER (you get the message).

    They also lower the game by like 1000 db and then raise the volume to 10000000 db when their 3 commercials run... INSANE!!!

    Oh, if you get on the NHL network website and click the CONTACT US link -- it says COMING SOON... Wha?!?!?!

    Absolutely INCREDIBLE.

    the crazy part was the beginning of the year, we got SD and HD CSN Philly broadcasts, now i cant even get just the SD. I just find it funny that the MLB package was able to obtain CSN all year, yet Centerice and the NHL didnt even attempt. I know DTV isnt at fault, but it'd be nice to seen them put up a fight.

    They probably don't want to hear how things are messed up.
    I also noticed,that D doesnt pick up the CBCs 2nd game much anymore on CI.
    The CBCs Flames@Blue Jacket's feed is missing tonight.

    This FSN SD feed for the Lightning game is like watching a game thru wax paper.

    Brandon Coburn...lol

    It's a very soft picture ! The Devils feed on 636 is even worse.

    I'm not blaming D* for it, it's just frustrating seeing the lack of HD Flyers games when nearly all of their games are broadcast in HD.

    Did anyone else get a black screen all night for the Avs game and also the Coyotes game on Saturday night (11/8)?
