    Why is my RSN grayed out in the guide when a game is live but I am viewing the game right now.

    And I'm in market.

    Is any one in Chicago area seeing gray on CSN Chicago in the guide?

    Same thing going on with the FS Oklahoma HD channel the past few days, but the pregame just came on at 9:00 CDT and the channel is no longer grayed out.

    Whatever happened caused my Red Wings recording that was to start at 930 cancel. I started watching live at 950, so only missed a bit, but not a good thing.

    I'm guessing it is related to this grey-out temporarily of the RSN. The history says cancelled due to change in recording permission.

    My RSN is grayed out and I can watch the game, but I cannot record it. I can't record the Red Wings game, but I can record the post game. Anybody else having this problem with recording the Red Wings?

    Something is going on with the RSN's. I could not record the Nets game (no big deal) and I am no longer getting the Devils and Islanders, but I get the Penguins. I have no idea why this is happening and I am afraid to call because I know I am only going to get frustrated. I am hoping Satelliteracer sees this thread and has an answer for us.

    I noticed that too, those channels in the sports package seem to go gray, then back, randomly and frequently.

    Same deal on Sharks' game last night on CSNCA-HD 698. Greyed-out: "You are not authorized to record this program." Neither the CSR nor the tech support guy had any knowledge of it. Nothing they could do.

    WTH is going on???

    Not only that, sometimes you bring up the guide and see "upcoming.." on part-time HD RSN's when an actual game in HD is being shown! So unless you tuned to the channel directly, you would never know a game was on at that time!:nono2:
