Been watching a little of FS1 but I'm annoyed. They have the picture shrunk a little so there are black bars on the sides just so they can fit there crawl in at the bottom. I hate this trend, I have a 16:9 TV and I want the image to fill my screen (unless I'm waiting a widescreen movie).

I don't see this. I have my TV on "Just Scan" which doesn't do overscan and it's fine. Actually, the left side of the ticker doesn't quite go all the way to the edge of the screen during the fight coverage. I only see the image shrunk a little during commercials...

You can see the light color all the way to the edge of the screen all the way down the ticker. It changes with the background. Disappears with over scan (16:9 mode).

From what I have seen, it's always there. I agree it's annoying. I like it during commercials but not games. I don't care if it's there during talk shows.

That stinks imo.I like to delay or record games,as if the constant scroll isn't annoying enough,one glance,and you've potentially ruined a recorded game.

For awhile last year I had set up something to cover the scroll so I didn't see it and it worked fine, till I found out that each channel has thier own size for thier scroll.
So my set up would work for one channel, but not for another.

Scrolls don't bother me as long as they overlay the picture and leave the OAR. It's when the squish and distort the image upward, like WGN does, in order to fit the scroll below the image that bothers me.

I like these preseason games from the local team affiliates. We get the Cowboys, Chiefs and Rams games on the locals here and no ANNOYING scrolls. Rams and Packers on local ABC now and nothing on screen interrupting the game except the score and time graphic in the corner. No Cletus jumping out promoting the halftime show, or whats coming on the network next week, just a clean video of the game.

It's been ALL OVER on commercials for about a month now on D*.

If you watch baseball at all you'll know all about it.
It's not DIRECTV, it's **FOX** that did the ads - they were advertising their new FS1 channel both in-game and during commercial breaks.

DIRECTV never sent me an email (and still hasn't) saying a deal had been struck and that I"d find it on channel 2xx. DIRECTV never sent a on-screen message to my Genie saying that I'd find FS1 on channel 2xx today. DIRECTV has only communicated the news with a junk ad in the on-screen guide beginning Saturday.

I did find two DIRECTV fails today. FS2 is not in my CHOICE package (you'd think they'd put them in the same tier since they are FOX Sports channel 1 and 2 -- it's as stupid as having ESPN without ESPN2 in the same tier) and also I can't find the MLB alternate channel in my guide listing (214 taken over by MavTV?) so when rockies/dbacks air on that channel, I don't know where to tune for the alternate game.

uh yeah they did. Was a message around noon central. Around 4:00 central there was a message for FS2

that's new as of this evening. I used to tune 213-1 for MLB Network Primary HD. Now it says just "213" is MLBN HD and "213-1" is the alternate s I guess I have to get used to punching 213-1 for alternate HD instead of the primary HD.

btw, just got a msg on my directv receiver about the channel moves so they finally communicated that, some 12+ hours after FS1 went live. You'd think DIRECTV would communicate that by receiver on-screen msg on Friday when they knew things were all set to go with FS1.

I have not had that issue at all on my Sony TV and have watched FS1 & FS2 all day. The programming has looked great and picture has filled the entire screen to the end.

So first you're complaining that they didn't send a message to anyone, then you're complaining about not getting yours on Friday?

what's on this channel in the next week that they couldn't of waited til next Friday to let everyone know

Overscan will cut the edge off where this happens. The picture fills the screen. The ticker doesn't quite but where it stops is out of the overscan/16:9 area.
