    Am curious if this has happened to anyone else...
    Last week, in the 330 ET ABC/ESPN mirror, the ESPN game was blacked out, even though it was supposed to be part of the mirror. So instead of watching Notre Dame and Sparty, I got a black screen on ESPN and some Igiveashit game on ABC ... anyone else had this in the last four weeks?

    I had a black screen on ESPN-HD at the exact same time. The regular ESPN worked. My problem might be completely unrelated to yours.

    Not sure if this fits what you're talking about, but I got one game on ABC HD and a different game on regular ABC last week. If that's the norm, I wasn't aware of it.

    My regular ESPN was also blacked out, but DirecTV had it on one of the alternate ESPN channels. I think part of the problem here was that ND-Sparty was listed in the program grid as the game the local ABC affiliate was showing, even though it was really Va. Tech-UNC.

    What I really want to know is why the local CBS affiliate has stopped showing Titans games.

    My ESPN "mirror" game is always blacked out. I don't know why, but I'm hoping it changes when I switch cable systems next week.

    Va. Tech-UNC was listed as the ABC game here, but we got ND-MSU on ABC and Va. Tech-Carolina on ESPN.

    Exact opposite for me.

    Had ND-Sparty up here. Wished it was blacked out.

    But was your mirror game blacked out on ESPN is my question...

    I don't think so. ND-Sparty was the ABC game. I don't know what the ESPN game was.

    My mirror game was ND-MSU and it was blacked out on 206 but shown on 210 on DirecTV.

    Had the same bullshit blackout problem here. VT-UNC was supposed to be on ABC, with ND-MSU on ESPN. ESPN was a black screen.
