Where is FS-MW in HD?

Apparantly, DirecTV isn't broadcasting the Cardinals Home Opener in High Def. If you go to http://www.stlcardinals.com you will see that the game on 3/31/08 is advertised as:

vs COL
3:15 PM
FSN-HD
Cardinals home opener

So, why isn't DirecTV broadcasting in HD then?

Looks like it's in HD to me.

That isn't FSN-HD. That channel would be 647-1. Two different DirecTV reps state that it won't be broadcast on 647-1. I've talked to them in the past and they didn't know anything and gave false information. I'm hoping this is the case again.

It has to be a mistake, right??? The FSN Midwest website says it will be in HD. DirecTV can't not show stuff on the schedule, can they???

It is doing the same thing with the Royals game that same afternoon. They have been advertising during every Royals game that the season opener will be in HD "right here on FSN KC".

That is the EI channel listing. The guide has not yet been fully populated al it says is To Be Announced. Don't panic yet.

Where did you see that? I see 737-1 for the Cards and 722-1 for KC on the dtv website. Does it say somewhere where it is pulling the feed from? It should be on local FSN Midwest (for those of us in the area) on 647-1 (Cards) and 648-1 (KC).

The 700 channels are the EI channels. No way of knowing which feed it will be. Although it used to be home teams feed back in the days when I subed to the package. If you advance your on screen guide to game times on Monday you will see that all the dash one channels just say TBA.. It's just a bit early yet for them to be listed yet. Also if you check 645 you will see the game listed as pre-season. So you can't take what the guide says or does not say to the bank. As I said earlier, don't panic yet.

Ok, now I am getting really nervous. On Monday during the Cardinal game, my guide is listing some HD program called "Into the Wild" for FSN Midwest channel 647-1 (which should have the Cardinal game on). I rechecked fsn midwest's website and it says:

2008 FSN MIDWEST ST. LOUIS CARDINALS HIGH DEFINITION SCHEDULE

March
Mon Mar 31 Colorado 3:00 p.m.

So, how is this possible??? DTV can't not show it if that is what fsn midwest is showing, right? That doesn't make sense.

Sorry, I was looking at the re-showing of the game later in the evening. :o Who knew they would re-air the game over and over again through the night. It still has nothing listed for the actual time of the live game.

The game is in the guide now, along with the pre-game show.
