    Title kind of says it all. I had the Michigan game on in my Br TiVo, my dad had it on in the library TiVo, but when I went to my HD TiVo ch. 218 was a no show as was 219. anyone else find this problem?

    Is it missing from your guide data? When DTV moves channels around on transponders, I frequently have to go back into my channel guide and re-add the channels (either to channels I receive or favorites).

    My problem is usually solved by re-adding the channels to my Favorites (thumbs-up) since I filter my channel list.

    A reboot fixes weird problems of this sort.

    These channels are not available HD on HD TiVo, since they are on the new satellite.

    Since they are new channels, their SD version might not be enabled in your favorites list. Try "All channels" (info, enter, I think).

    The channels were in the guide, just a gray screen when I tuned in. I'll reboot and check next week.

    I don't think he was looking for them in HD - just that they weren't showing on his HD TiVo.

    All D* customers get the Big10 Network (218 is one of the 3 B10 network channels).

    Well, another week and once again no 218 and 219. 220 is fine. Weird. Info banner says "Michigan vs E. Michigan" screen blank.

    Is it possible, being from Michigan, that you are simply living in a zip code that is blacked out from this game? Games are often blocked out for a radius around the site to protect ticket sales.

    BTN doesn't black out games.
