    Still haven't decided whether I'm in for this year. Forgot to compare the schedule with my travel schedule today.

    I also wonder if they got the nomad working with CI this year. Just another twist in trying to make a decision.

    How would you use Nomad with CI? Personally I have found Nomad clunky, but are you talking about recording games to your DVR and transferring to Nomad for offline viewing later? Just curious if I'm missing something cool.

    That is exactly what I'm talking about, but it didn't work last year (on CI channels only; NBC, NHLN and my RSNs worked fine).

    Washington Post has a time-lapsed video showing the ice going down in Washington : Washington Video

    Glad to see it doesn't say "Thank You Fans".

    Didn't know you couldn't transfer your DVR recordings of certain channels to Nomad. In this case I guess it doesn't really matter because aren't most CI games mirrored from RSN's? I know they open up the Sabres RSN during games, so you would just need to be cognizant to record that channel. I have a manual recording programmed in to get my games, but I never moved them to Nomad.

    There are certain items, like PPV and (I think) on-demand, that you can't transfer to your nomad.

    But it did matter. Case Management had me try this (recording from an RSN that I don't normally get but was 'open' because it had a hockey game that was on CI). I couldn't transfer those to the nomad either.

    What Case Management eventually told me was that nomad considered CI games as PPV and I couldn't transfer those to the nomad. They said they were fixing that and it would be completed before this season started. Since they've had a few extra months to work on it, I'm hoping it will work now.

    It sure would be nice to have a nice mix channel like the one MLB has. The one we have had over the past few years is very primitive, when it is even working.

    Hey, I made an account here since I actually have knowledge on the piece of crap nomad and why it will not record CI. The problem lies with the fact that when the game ends, directv cuts off the channel but the recording still continues. This causes some sort of problem with the nomad. The same thing happens when I recorded the red wings on FS detroit. When the game ended, the channel was blacked out as I was not subscribed and it flubbed up the nomad. However, I purchased the stupid sports pack (my wife NEEDED her red wings fix) so FS detroit never shut off when the game ended (since we subscribed to it in addition to CI) and all recordings successfully transferred to the nomad. You could test this by recording 10 minutes worth of CI on the pay channels and then you should be able to successfully transfer that. My information does not help you since you have no way of stopping the recording before directv cuts off the feed but at least this way you know what the actual problem is... which is apparently not known to the directv techs.

    I think this happens every year. Even though a CI subscriber, are 'exhibition' games blacked out? Like the Wings game currently on FSD?

    Welcome madmax and thanks for the input.

    You 'stop' the recording by setting it to manually record. Which is what I always did because the CI games are scheduled for six hours (IIRC). Even a 30 minute manually-recorded CI game wouldn't transfer over to the nomad (and I tried in/on SD, HD, HR24, HR22, HR23 at case management's request).

    nomad isn't 100%, but it also isn't a 'piece of crap.' I travel a lot and it is a fantastic way to watch my shows in locations where I can't stream (like an airplane).

    Red Wings got a scrimmage game on now on FSDetHD, but it is blacked out. I wish they would open it up to those who are on auto renewal.

    Maybe not open up the RSNs or a CI channel, but how about the freaking NHL Network cover some of this stuff.

    You want to get hockey back out in front of the fans and you have your own network. You would think you could use one to accomplish the other.

    Oh, I forgot. They didn't even have any live coverage of the press conferences following the CBA agreement or any other late breaking news.

    Worst league network channel.

    I saw this on www.dallasnews.com in their announcement about the free NHL CI preview. It said these were available on digital cable for those with NHL CI:

    Anyone ever use/watch these? Any good?

    I might need to retract part of this. NHL Network is showing the Wings Red/White Shootout right now.

    Forgive me if this has already been asked, but I've been an NHLCI sub since 1995, and I auto-renew each year. Will I still have to call on Saturday, or will I be re-subscribed like in regular years?

    You won't have to call if you are on auto-renew. There will be a grace period allowing auto-renew subs to cancel after the start of the season as well.
