Also, I am not seeing the blackout message. When I turn to something that is blacked out, the screen in black, but the messages that usually pop up up ("this program is blacked out in your area" or "you are not subscribed to this package" for the baseball) isn't there.
Yesterday (with last week's CE), I wanted to watch the T-Wolves/Lakers summer league game, but when I tuned to TWCSN (691) the screen was black. It was available on TWC Deportes (470) but obviously in Spanish. Since I didn't see the blackout message on 691, I went back to 691 and it asked if I wanted to rewind it and I was "what the heck... why not?" and I was able to watch it from the beginning - it was not blacked out. Maybe it was on NBATV and wasn't able to be shown live on 691, but it could on delay. I wasn't THAT interested in a summer league game to keep looking for it.
I noticed then that the "press << to start from the beginning" program cued up wicked fast - like Netflix. On-Demand, too. It's always been painfully slow for me but not anymore. Works fast today, too.
Tonight, I see that MLB Network was showing LAA @ Sea or Phi @ SF. Hoping I could watch the second one (the Phillies aren't that far away, compared to the other teams), I went to 213-1 and just a black screen. The first game on 213 isn't blacked out. I checked all of the RSNs (I have Sports Pack but not MLBEI) and not a since OOM baseball game displayed the message, all were black.
There are also several channels "grayed out" on the guide that shouldn't be - the usual ones, INSP, Nick west, few others. After the Yankees/Red Sox game, I will reset and see if anything changes.
