Re: Free NHL PREVIEW

I tried to watch a Center Ice HD channel during the free viewing. One of my STBs, a 6200 HD box, would not let me view a game in HD. It gave the error that the STB had to be replaced.

I ordered it on Wed night, it arrived on Thursday. It is a 7100 model. I didn't know that the InDemand HD streams needed an upgraded stb!

I have been viewing HD programs, both live and recorded on this 6200 STB for years. I learn something every day!

Vz is testing out MPEG4 compression on the InDemand HD streams, the 6xxx model STBs can't view MPEG4.

See this thread where what you found by mistake was used by many of us for a free upgrade...

Thanks, guys! I must have missed that message stream. I already has a 7232 DVR and one 7100 STB. Must have missed the other one!

The free upgrade worked!
