Occasionally, when a Yankees game is being shown on one of the DirecTV regional sports channels, the DST-3000 program guide will show an "HD" icon. I'm assuming this means HDTV. Is there any way I can actually see this in HD? I have a round dish. I don't see any difference from SDTV when I view this channel.

The guide is right and wrong. It's being broadcast in HD by Cablevision, but not retransmitted in HD by DirecTV.


Go to New York, get cable and you're all set. Heck, you might even get 'em OTA sometimes in HD.

Don't blame DirecTV for this one. Cablevision (who owns MSG) is only transmitting an HD feed to themselves. They are not providing an HD feed to any other cable or satellite company.


So the answer is not that the HD feed is not being retransmitted by DirecTV. It's that the HD feed is not being transmitted to DirecTV in the first place.

Yes... DirecTV is not getting the HD signal.

But... If they were... do you really think they will

provide it to NY?


If local OTA for HD programs are not in HD through DTV,

why would NY get Yankees games in HD?


Do not take it as a flame, just how DTV works.
