Showcases is now called "Movies Now! & More".

Sounds like they are getting ready to use their showcase feature for possible pre-recorded PPVs? Then again, it may just be to promote the On Demand training-videos.

For what it is worth, I did not sign up for the widgets program. I downloaded the CE Friday night and hit the right arrow for fun and a bar showed up and said widgets coming soon. It had 4 or 5 icons on it. I did not lose video though, the bar was semi transparent over the playing channel.

Good,
Then you can take my place, I did sign up and still don't see anything when I push the correct arrows, not even the coming soon banner.

Jimbo - they're working on some issues, not sure if it is related - but hang in there and check it again in a 2-3 weeks :)

The widgets forcing the screen to black (or gray) only happens when watching buffered/recorded programming. When watching live video, the widgets bar appears and does not affect the video. Either way, audio is not affected.

I'm not a widget subscriber, but downloaded the CE. No issues encountered. . .all seems OK. I'm glad the HD audio synch got fixed awhile ago. . .that was annoying when watching the Nascar Prelude to the Dream PPV event.
