    If it's being shown by FSN in Detroit, and you are in Detroit, all other sources will be blacked out.

    It is on Versus - it is supposed to be on 95 HD - but it is not showing up - I think D* and whoever is suppose to set up and change that station, made a mistake - at 7pm, 95 came on and it was showing the Golf channel LPGA Gin open, in SD - now it is just showing the D* logo

    I am on the phone with a technician now - but it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere - it is not my system! It is obviously something with D*


    Anybody know a # to call to get to a more advanced tech

    They need to have 5 people call in with this same issue - they already have 2 - one is mine - for this to be a known issue and for them to take the issue and solve it

    Again - the game is supposed to be on 95 in HD

    1800directv and go to tech support

    The word I'm getting is that it's not showing up on some cable systems also. Sounds like a bigger problem.

    I am NOT getting tonights game in HD, 9463 says I don't subscribe or something along those lines.
    I do have the Detroit Calgary game on 151 Versus right now, just NOT in HD anywhere.

    FYI, your posting this in a Dish Network forum, I"m not sure how many Direct TV subs are actually reading this.

    He just told me that Dish Network and Direct TV do not get the HD games, it is not Versus's fault it was the two Sateilite Companies that chose NOT to carry the Thursday and Friday games in HD.

    This is fantastic. I am glad that DirecTV wants to offer us so much programming that they decided that showing NOTHING is better than showing the game in HD. It isn't a bandwidth issue. Thank God I am getting a directv logo and XM on 95 instead of a game. They sure are showing that they want to be the HD leader.

    Counting down the days until contract expiration...

    No worries, the issue affects us both but just wanted to make sure you realized your call to arms for DirectTV subs was being posted in a Dish forum =)

    No apology necessary - there's always room for another hockey fan.

    I think this is a Versus issue. As I mentioned in an earlier post...Versus' web site does not indicate that this game is being shown in HD on Versus...

    9463 NHLHD and HDPPV are both "off air". My guess is the only folks who will see the Detroit/Calgary game in HD are those picking up their home market feed through a provider (cable/SAT) that has FSN Detroit HD, or TSN in HD for Calgary.

    You're probably right. This guide definitely shows tonight's game is supposed to be HD on VERSUS.

    http://www.hdsportsguide.com/

    But for all we know, this may have changed and like you, I'd trust VERSUS' own site. MrMars earlier said he was watching the game in HD, and he's in Mass.
