    Neat. In any case, I looked at mine (remotely) and do see CH.95 doing Rockies at Phillies in HD.

    I'm getting call x721 to order. Oh, well - SD it is.

    FYI - I pay for HD package, but not MLB EI or Sports Package.

    EDIT - I called Directv and they just did a package refresh, and now I have it. Looks good.

    I was not receiving Ch 95 late this afternoon...a call to DirecTV...eventually...revealed that yes, as an HR10-250 owner who subscribes to the HD package I should be seeing games on Ch 94 and Ch 95.

    The CSR first insisted that "Umm...we don't have a channel 95."

    After a little prodding they were able to "re-program" my receiver and after a restart all was good.

    I had to make 4 calls to D* to get 95. The trick was to remove the HD package and then add it back in. Before I got a person that could do it I got a rep that said TBS is not in HD yet and a supervisor who said D* is absolutley NOT broadcasting the games on 95. He would not let me speak to anyone else either. He was extemely rude too. Most reps are very nice and polite but can only handle simple things and get no info (or incorrect info) apparently from up above.

    So, we should be able to get HD games on 95? I called last night, and they said no.
    I have a 250 with HD and also MLB EI. What's the trick to get the games on 95?

    Just spent more than an hour on the horn with D*, much with tier 2. Acted like I shoukd get 95 but couldn't make it happen even with suggestions as above. Any tricks would be appreciated. SD feed on TBS is particularly bad.

    Rebooted twice. Once with first CSR. Again with tier 2 rep. Said they tried everything they could think of including cancelling HD and reinstalling as above. Said they'd send it up the line as a "broadcasting issue" and I should just keep checking.

    My channel 95 is not working and dtv says it should not work on the hr10-250 I need to upgrade to their dvr at a cost of 299.................

    So should it work or not???

    Mine is a leased unit so why not just say it is broken....what is Dtv going to do in that situation?

    My guess, after some time with them tonight, is that it is supposd to work but they are having all sorts of difficulty with new channels roll-out.

    It took me three calls, but I got 95 working finally. While on hold, all of my channels went blank and then started coming back. I had to ask them to add back my west coast locals, but when they did, everything was working. They guy explained that they basically canceled everything and then rebuilt my package from the ground up.

    Thanks to everyone here. There's no way I could have made it through it all without knowing that is was achievable.

    How are you guys getting channel 95 on the hr10-250 ?

    I did have dtv resend their codes and rebooted and still nothing. Then Dtv says they are not broadcasting 95 on mpeg2 only mpeg4.

    They tell me to upgrade for a nomial fee of 299.

    How am I getting it? I don't know, its just there.

    If they tell you they are not broadcasting 95 on mpeg2 then they are flat out lying to you.

    I've head a couple things on this:

    1) Have them remove your HD Access and then add it back on seems to fix the issue for many.
    2) If you have an old package that may be the issue since the feed is actually TBS-HD so it may be an authorization issue with the old package. Again, removing the HD access and adding it back might help there but if you have a really old package maybe not.

    Keep on 'em.

    If you do have any MPEG4 receivers (H20, H21 or HR21) then it is available on the TBS-HD channel.
