    Not sure when they started showing footage but HDN has some and is using it in some of their stories on the tsunami cleanup..... gives a new perspective to the destruction. EDIT... its not indonesia footage, theyre saying its from sri lanka.

    Why are voOm's Movie Packs are more than Dish/Direct?

    Im assuming because of E/W feed but and other reason beyond that? Seems they would/should offer just one and match the competarors price.... Ive "had" starz on my account the past few days and Ive been impressed with its content and considered adding it to my account but 20/month for one...

    Is there a real manual for the voom receiver somewhere?

    Not the small booklet that comes with the box, something that shows you all the little quirks of the system? Also on a related note I dont have the Va Va voom package, just the regualr one and other that using favorites is there somewhere in the setup where you can only display the channels...
