    the sharks vs. oilers comcast sportsnet feed keeps blinking in and out, is virtually unwatchable when it is visable and there also appears to be no sportsnet west feed as the schedule reads. :(

    I think they fixed the blinking issue. Bad news is we all missed the goal. The channel is really hard to watch even with the blinking fixed. This has to be the worst quality SD channel I have ever seen on DirecTV. I am getting a headache it is so blurry!

    EDIT: This channel is an absolute joke. The quality is a D up or downlink issue for sure but Comcast is cutting away to commercial during the game. Is Edmonton that far away that they can't maintain a link?

    Yes the SD feed on my 42" HD was horrible.The announcer apoligized for the techicnal difficulties during the broadcast. I actually went out and watched the game on my older tv.It looked fine on the other tv.

    I do not think that is it, even with its limited bandwidth cable has had many HD games that DirecTV did not have, so if the league was paying per game those games would of been on DirecTV too, same thing the other way around, most of the games from Sportsnet Ontario that DirecTV did use were not on Indemand. DirecTV only uses Sportsnet Ontario, Cable has used all 4 + CBC.

    My guide shows Calgary @ Nashville in HD on 780-1 on Monday 11/30. The only network broadcasting the game is SNET-W (according to nhl.com). Canadian HD feed for the Flames, it appears. Has that happened yet this season?

    Sens-Sharks game tomorrow has two HD feeds, and the Sens-Ducks game is listed in HD as well, and that has to be the Sens feed since the Ducks feed is on a local channel. Nice to see some Canadian HD feeds, though I'd love more western Canadian feeds, and CDN National feeds (CBC/TSN).

    EDIT: I'm thinking that D* thought they could get the Calgary back haul HD feed from satellite.

    The Flames vs Nashville game isn't even in HD on Sportsnet tonite, only getting a blackscreen, this on Bell, not sure if it's a technical problem or what.

    Followup on Tonight's Preds-Flames Game

    Both the onscreen guide and Directv's NHLCI guide said the game would be in HD on channel 780-1. Not true, as it turned out, so my plan to watch on DVR-delay was frustrated.

    I called Directv customer service to share my anger. RepBot kept saying the game was being "broadcasted" on channel 780. I kept telling him I knew that, what I wanted to know was why the game wasn't on 780-1 as promised. He said maybe it was being blacked out. I told him I lived probably 1300 air miles from the nearest NHL team and am not subject to NHL blackouts. He said it was being "broadcasted" on 780 and tried to get me to troubleshoot my DVR. Grrr....

    I'm a Calgary fan, I get that we get poor service relative to a Wings or Bruins or Hawks fan, even though we pay the same package price as everyone else. Nevertheless, Directv should have enough control of its programming to NEVER say they'll have a PPV item on a given channel then not deliver it.

    Needless to say, the RepBot never could explain why the game wasn't on 780-1. Terrible customer service, if you ask me.

    A little thing called a contract between VS and the NHL.
    If VS has the game it can't be broadcast in the USA.
    Now since I have Dish I will be able to see the game HD no less.
