Recording Blacked-Out Channel Instead of Actual Broadcast
I have a favorite sports team set to record all new games (Boston Red Sox). This works fine as long as games are carried as usual on the regional broadcast (NESN). When a game gets picked up for national broadcast (like today's game on ESPN), the national broadcaster blacks out the game locally to let NESN carry it for the New England market. Xfinity is recording the ESPN broadcast of a series of shows other than the live game broadcast. The online listing shows the game on both ESPN and NESN, but that is not the case. I just fired up the recording expecting to fast forward through the gaps in action (no jokes about how many of those are in baseball, please :)). Now I have missed over half of the game and am watching live in the 6th inning. How do I get Xfinity to record the actual game on my preferred network instead of the national broadcast of not-the-game?
