    This may be old news but FCS now has multiple channels. This game is on ch 623 not 617 as it usually is.

    It is bad when you get used to routinely watching your team play on an alternate channel with crappy coverage after all other stations have picked up every game but ours. Ouch!

    On FCS?? :lol:

    Hmm, that channel is showing as grayed-out out my DVR receiver but it's not showing that way on my non-HD receiver.

    I have direct tv and it shows the game but it's an alternate station and says broadcast may not be available?

    623 shows the game starts at 3:30 est. So it looks like a go.

    You looking at 617 or 623? Mine shows it on 623 but it shows as grayed out, as if to imply I don't get that channel. I got the Wyoming game last year that was on FCS. :huh:

    623 is what i am looking at. however, now that you bring up the wyoming game, i kinda remember the same issue last year for me. i did end up getting the game. in amazingly low def. 617 is showing Sacred Heart @ St Francis (Pa.). sweet.

    In the past with FCS-broadcast games, the channel doesn't become active on DirecTV until kickoff.

    Hey, I can dream.

    For some reason I don't have 623 at all, but I have 623-1. Not sure what's going on there.

    Mine is grayed out right now, but I checked it yesterday and it's showing the DTV logo. So I think it's an active channel, just no programming until gametime tomorrow...
