    Default DirecTV and Kings Games...

    My thread from a while back about DirecTV got pruned, it looks like...

    We took the plunge about three weeks ago, ditching Time Warner Cable for DirecTV through the deal Costco had going (a $200 Costco card plus free Genies). WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING holding on to TWC as long as I did? DirecTV is AWESOME!!!!! Better picture quality and WAY more features!! So you guys who said, "Do it, you won't regret it!" were spot-on! Thanks...and I wish I'd listened to you earlier.

    One of the coolest features is the ability to record "your teams." HOWEVER, I'm noticing that Kings games are only automatically set up to record if they're on NHL network or NBCSN. If they're on FSN or PT, they don't automatically get recorded for some reason, even though the channel selection in Series Manager is set to "all the channels I get."

    Is there a workaround that any of you know about?

    Thanks in advance.

    You could try recording any program with keyword "Los Angeles Kings" under category "Hockey."

    My only issue with Directv so far is if I want to watch something On Demand, I have to download it, which seems to take forever. (Uverse had things available to watch in full almost instantly).

    But not a huge deal.

    I find adding 30 minutes or more to each recording is sometimes good as games often run over. (or in the case of football, 2 hours)

    Problem solved itself, it appears. Tonight's game is automatically set to record, as are the next few in the schedule. Apparently, it was only a problem for DirecTV to find last Sunday's Winnipeg@Kings game.

    I freakin' love this system. Just discovered this morning that I can stream Pandora through it!

    I would, but honestly what keeps me attached is pretty much the Kings. Even if I didn't live in LA and have to worry about them being blacked out, the later rounds of the playoffs aren't even available for streaming through Center Ice.

    I don't trust DTV to record automatically,so I do it manually every time. Since I can do it from my PC or my phone, it is pretty convenient.

    I pretty much manage it this way.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
