    Ok, so yesterday about 6 hours before kickoff, I found out that my Fox HD East Coast feed had no picture. it did have sound (5.1) but no picture. I called directv and notified them right away so I wouldnt miss the big game in HD. They were going to "look into it" I called back 3 hourrs later, and they said its affecting everyone in my region (Boston area?). It was never fixed in time for the game. I had to watch it on the normal Fox channel and yes I am extremely pissed off.

    Did this happen to anyone else? I was expecting a long thread about this by now, but when I searched I did not find one.

    EDIT: Superbowl 39 I mean.

    Are you talking about channel 88?

    If so I watched the game on that channel from the Boston area with no video issues, although I did experience some audio problems (small amount of stuttering in the second half)
