I am in Newport, KY and have Insight's DVR box with the HD. I am a huge Bengals fan, as well as a football fan, and I am having some trouble with getting the BENGALS ONLY in HD. It seems that EVERY OTHER game on CBS, ABC, and ESPN I can get in HD, but so far, I have been unsuccessful in getting the HD into my home. In week 1, the Jets away game, the no signal on CBS. Then, in week 2, I was at the game, but I set the DVR to record the HD signal, since it was Sunday Night Football, on ESPN, I was SURE that it would record in HD. Well, when I got home, I looked at the recording, and no dice. And then, last week, again, at home, I was there, I set the DVR to record the HD CBS signal, and it came in, but not in HD. And then yesterday, away, Pittsburgh, I was watching, on the CBS HD, and again, no HD signal. I know that the Sunday night game was broadcast in other markets in HD, my friend in VA told me he got it in HD down there.
Is there any reason I cannot get MY local team's games in HD? I am about sick of this only getting other market's games with my equipment. I won't pay the money to Insight each month if it just isn't going to happen for me. I read in this thread earlier that someone said something about calling the station and having them "flip the switch"?
Or at least let me know what I can expect!
Thanks in advance.
