I know there seems to be several of these, but I('m having trouble.

I live in a DNS, and get the LA feeds of CBS and NBC. Even though I'm in a DNS, I'm eligle for Oklahoma City locals, which I also get.

The troble is, if OKC CBS carries a game, I'm blacked out on ST. This is bad b/c of HDTV. Bear in mind, there is no way to get these stations OTA.

I've called DirecTV about this, and they say I'm in OKC DMA. It doesn't matter if I'm in a white area, and that it is NFL rules, not theres. I have asked if I dropped the OKC locals, would I still get blacked out? They say yes, since I'm still in the OKC DMA.

I've read here that I shouldn't be blacked out, and to play CSR roulette. I've tried, always the same answer.

Any suggestions?

The CSR was right, you're blacked out if the locals in your DMA have exercised their contractual right to black them out - you're ability to get them or not is irrelevant. Plead with your local affiliate to contact DTV and allow it in your area, thats your only out.
