All I have right now is a black screen on Comcast Sports Net that says "No Signal". It went out about 10 min ago. I called my parents and they have the same problem and this is the only station that is having this problem. I'm wondering if the network is screwed up or if it is my cable service.

I'm getting worried that I won't be able to watch the game!:angry:

It's working here, I have Dish Network. Now some dumba** is explaining how the Sox choked this summer and the other three people are telling him how stupid he is essentially.

Just got it back but I have standard Comcast cable so that might be an entirely different signal than Dish Network. Thanks for the info though. I called up and they claimed it was the network's problem but 2 minutes later, the station magically came back. It better not go out during the game!:mad:

I'm out in LA, but I thought I heard that the game was on ESPN. Is that true?

i'm in southern cali too, and i'm getting direcTV's infamous "white screen" apologizing for the problem.

so like you i figured that this game HAD to be on ESPN (they're usually good about picking up great games like this on wed nights)... so it's phillies/braves on ESPN (which *is* a great game i'll admit) but then on the alt feed it's astros/pirates... excuse me? hey, i know the astros are in the thick of the race, but i'll take a 2-contender matchup anyday over a contender/irrelevant matchup.

On a related note, CLTV picked up the FSN North coverage of the Cubs/Brewers game. I think it's because CLTV has their own studios, and CSN could have just lost all power to their building.

that's an excellent question. it probably has a simple--but lame--answer like they're "contractually bound" to offer only the pre-arranged feed, but that's dumb. i'd call this extenuating circumstances and one of the competitive advantages of a service like direcTV *should* be that they can go the extra mile to bring a game like this to the fans.

actually overall i have few complaints with direcTV. i usually find them extremely helpful on the phone and i've rarely had an issue we couldn't resolve immediately...

Comcast Sports=Knucklehead Central. As mentioned the HD feed is fine, so I recommend you go to your friends house w/ HD or a nearby hotel lobby w/ HD (don't assume your favorite bar has HD, call first). I remember when Comcast Sports debuted the same thing happened with a screwed up feed for a college football game (NIU maybe?). Ask Fenway when if and when he posts to explain the real tech reason for this after Comcast tries to put a spin on this tomorrow.

CSN is working in Palatine now but there's no audio

Hey! At least it's working somewhere...

Don't it make you feel helpless? I know, I'm superstitious.....

and spoke with a few people. the low-level-answering-the-phone peons all agreed that it makes sense that, since the feed from chicago appears to be a problem, that it sure would be nice to just authorize the feed from FSN ohio.

unfortunately, they can't do that--it's the technical people who would do that. and they say... "DENIED!" just like i suspected.

that's the fun thing about bureaucracies, folks... it may make sense but if it violates policy, forget it...

still they were very nice in denying my request. they told me to have a nice night!

As mad as we are, imagine how the advertisers must feel with big audiences expected for the game. This will cost Comcast dearly.

I wouldn't be surprised if the advertisers demanded that CSN run their ads in the Sox's next game for free and get some of their money back from the ads that were supposed to run today.

We should get a talking head of Mick Jagger to put outside their office just to say that.

that's standard policy... they'll be comped in whole or in part for the blackout. believe me, the people most upset about this are the folks at comcast... they can hear the cash running down the drain...

RCN - yeah, me too.

Sure is weird listening to the radio...reminds me of when we were kids,
watching the game with the tv sound down, radio up.

They have this on their website:

Comcast Cable and RCN subscribers can now watch the game on Channel 37. This game can also be viewed in HD on Comcast Cable Channel 200. We are continuing to correct this situation for our other distributors.


Great...

Well, I can finally see the game.

In fact, I just saw Hafner's home run.

Well, now I kind of feel like turning it off.

Go figure.

Well, this is arguably the biggest game of the season to date for the Sox, and the feed gets screwed up like this? Absolutely no excuse. Somebody honestly should be fired.

All I have right now is a black screen on Comcast Sports Net that says "No Signal".

That was describing the Sox hitting.
