I should've been more specific, I wasn't talking about your PVR or Shaw or Rogers etc. I was talking about TSN, attached is the link. You can watch on your laptop, IPhone etc. As someone above mentioned, I hook up my laptop thru the HDMI and watch the "on demand" games on the big screen.
No need to record them, they are all here and "ad free"
And AGAIN those idiots did it, 9 minutes to go in the game, score almost tied and "we are switching this game to TSN 2 so you can see the kickoff of the Winn/Als game. Bunch of idiots, luckily I got to watch Hamilton choke on TSN On Demand.
I have all 5 channels and have learned to pick the channel in the region of the teams involved when I PVR so this doesn't happen. There is no need for this, you stick with the game until it's over. I've had to endure post race coverage of NASCAR, post racecoverage, before they switch to a CFL game.
I have all five as well, and do the same - record the channel I expect to not switch to the second game.
What I don't understand is why TSN doesn't just put the beginning of the second game on TSN2, with a banner on the regular channels announcing that anyone wanting to switch should go there. For PVR, just record the game on TSN1/3/4/5 as well as an hour on TSN2.
