    Why do I get a black screen when trying to tune in on the NFL Network? This game isn't blacked out, is it?

    Not according to the DIRECTV.com guide.

    Any issues with any other channels, or just the NFL channel?

    Not true...

    "If the blacked-out nationally televised game is on a cable television network like ESPN or the NFL Network, all cable and satellite television providers in the affected markets must black out the cable network's signal to customers in the affected markets during the game (this is a condition of the channels' agreements with both the league and the providers). In addition, the game is not simulcast on a local broadcast station in the blacked-out markets. Local stations would still be able to show highlights on their newscasts after the game has concluded. In areas where the game is blacked out, ESPN and NFL Network would generally offer alternate programming; local stations originally scheduled to carry the game would either show their own alternate programming or, if a network affiliate, show the normal network schedule for that night."

    It is rare because ESPN usually carries marquee matchups, but they could be blacked out in the home teams market. See my earlier post...

    I was having the black screen issue with NFL net last night.(HR20-700) If I pressed pause, then play, it would come back.

    I'm in Des Moines and I had the same problem. Clearing the snow off the dish did the trick. :)

    Seems I had just enough snow on the dish to knock out the 99/103 sats, but 101/110/119 were coming in fine.
