    Default DirecTV/TiVo/Tonight's Game

    Anybody else having an issue setting up tonight's game on TiVo?

    I keep getting a "pay per view" "purchase and record" message - I've been on the phone with DirecTV for what seems like an eternity. Actually, I've been on hold, listening to a Boy Band on music - took care of that "Jimmy Eats World" problem.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Have you tried a manual recording? If the game is going to show, I'd think you could just record on that channel. But then, maybe the DirectTV version won't let you do that.

    That's how the call with DirecTV concluded.

    Officially, the league pass doesn't start until the regular season begins. So I can watch the games, and manually record them, but I can't set up TiVo in advance of tipoff.

    That sucks. But then, you've actually got LP, so I'm not too sympathetic.

    I take it you're not coming down for the game.

    I'll save the driving for the regular season - although I'm actually p!$$ed that we don't play a preseason game in Chicago.

    I had the same problem, nothing but the option to purchase so I couldn't set it up to record... luckily the lady was home to manually record it for me.

    Same result here. Looks like that's what we'll have to do for all the preseason games.
