Does anyone know what time will VOOM actually be shut down on the 30th? Midnight eastern or 6am or what? Don't want to be in the middle of a program and have it go black.

I haven't heard anything but I got quite the scare this morning.

I fired up the TV / STB and got a black screen in the preview pane. The shutdown message was there.... the guide was there... just no TV.

I tried a couple different channels via the guide.... nothing.

I checked and the sat signal was at 96... no problem there.

Just then I remebered a bug that I haven't seen in a LONG time... so I hit watch and did a channel up, channel down and got picture.

Grrrr - firmware bug nearly gave me a heart attack this morning - lol.

Do you mean 12:01 am on May 1st?

If you mean 12:01 am on April 30th, then the 29th would actually be our last Voom experience?

Does this mean 9:00 pm on April 29th for PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) viewers?
