Nice! I was amazed when we had our first real snow storm, the pic was taken about halfway to the total snowfall. No lost signal!! I can't believe it took me this long to switch to sat.

Download just completed, "Step 1 of 2 Checking satellite settings... This will take a few minutes."

Edit: Thanks Jimbo!

That was odd...The screen was blank till I got to the Directv graphic screen, didn't have the normal blue "Please Wait" screen. Seems to be going fine now though. Hmmmm...

My first CE, so far heres what I got.

Quicktune - I know this is not new

New Music Channels - We've added Sonic Tap to our mix of music. You can find the new channels starting at channel 870 and above.

Is the Sonic Tap thing new?

Quicktune was in the CE a couple weeks ago I think, very handy! The Sonic Tap channels were added recently too but they don't wow me. I want the newer Sirius/XM channels.

That showed up several days ago as a guide update--unrelated to the CE.

I want XM channel 202 (The virus) back! It was canceled about 4 days after I had Directv installed....
