How many?? is it 6 because they are all sharing the same transponder? That's just crap if it is.

8 HD sports channels at 129° and another 5 HD Sports channels at 61.5° can be active at any one time so I guess the answer to your question is 13.

And there is room on other transponders right now if they need it so there is no reason why Dish should not be showing EVERY SINGLE RSN HD GAME.

I don't know what transponders they use on 61.5, but historically, they've been using 129 tp8 and tp27 for RSN games. That would allow for 12 or 14 simultaneous games. I think the uplink reports filter those moves out now.

129 Tp 8 can have 6
129 Tp 27 can have 4(this Tp has some fulltime national HDs on it)
61.5 Tp 30 can have 7

The uplink reports for the 6:10 AM EDT sports moves are not posted. The source channels do not move anyway and they determine how many different content channels can be on those transponders at the same time.

NESN (61.5) broadcasts every Sox game in HD, home and away. There have been at least five NESN games not available in HD so far this season (Yesterday's was the most recent). I've seen similar threads for other teams here as well.

Based on this available bandwidth for HD RSNs, when there are an excess number of channels broadcasting a game in HD, are they rotating who's left out or are they actually just making a lot of scheduling mistakes?? Last month I called to try to find out why that night's game wasn't available in HD, the CSR said he was "aware of the problem" and would see if he could "get it fixed". Lo and behold a few hours later, the guide showed the HD was available.

Was it truly a scheduling mistake, or because myself and others called and complained, I wonder if they bumped another game and replace it with the Sox??

NESN would like for you to believe every Red Sox game they telecast is in Pristeen HD, but it ain't necessarily so. :)

They would not likely bump a game just to do the Red Sox HD on DiSH.

I assume you meant pristine, but NESN HD does broadcast in 1080i and it looks pretty damn good to me (when Dish decides to show it ;))

You found a CSR who was aware of the problem!!!

When I called Dish to find out why a White Sox game was not in HD on CSN Chicago I got the usual scripted reply. We do not have that channel in HD or the game is not a HD broadcast.

Now that I know the problem is Dish's limited HD capacity I do not waste my time calling Dish about the game not being in HD.

Don't give up. A few weeks ago I noticed that a Cubs game was not in HD on 429. I called DISH and complained. Within ten minutes it was up and on in HD!
