Hi - this upcoming baseball season will be my first with Dish Network. During the baseball season for the Cubs games that are on Comcast SportsNet in HD, what happens if a game goes long, like 15 innings? Does the HD feed all of a sudden cut off in the middle of the game and I have to finish it in SD? Or does the HD feed stay active as long as the game is on?

But of course that means if the Cubs are on at 7:05 and the 4:00 PM game using that HD transponder runs long, you will get to see the beginning of the Cubs game in glorious SD. :)

Thanks. That is the info I needed to know. I wasn't sure if they assigned a 4 hour block to the game and the game went over the 4 hour block, if the HD would automatically shut off and and we would see the wonderful "Check back to see if your team is playing" message during the middle of the game.
