I wonder if it has anything to do with Pandora?

No.. doubt thats it, the more I dig the more I am not liking what I hear.

Seems like they are trying to change the CE program so that SatelliteGuys members can not participate in the HD GUI beta.

I hope this is not true, while we are not on the best of terms with DIRECTV, I believe our members provideo more HONET and Valuable feedback then members of other forums who are affraid to say anything bad about DIRECTV or the CE program.

Doug Brott is supposed to make some big announcement tonight at 10PM ET even though there is no CE tonight.

No, only between 11PM and 2:30AM Friday and Saturday ET.

Oh yeah, tonight is Friday! Like Scott said, not this week.

I fail to see how they could do that. They don't know who I am, they don't know what my real name or account number is, and unless they have a warrant they can't make you divulge my IP address, so how can they block me from downloading a CE if I know what time it'll be in the stream?

From what I was told and this could be wrong (and I really hope it's wrong) that they will need your install user name, your directv account number and your ip address to participate.

Again I REALLY hope this info is wrong but this contact has been accurate as of late.

I would urge everyone not to get upset and wait for tonights announcement first. Who knows it might be a nice surprise!

Why would they need your IP address, especially if you don't have a static IP? Downloads are done over the sat.

So they can send the software to your box? That I don't know.

Maybe they would send it via IP. That's more secure than putting it on a transponder where anyone could get it.

Account username, is that the email address I use to sign into HBOGo and DirecTV account / iPad app?

Directv paid Anonymous to hack into this site's database and steal all the IP addresses so they can block anyone who's a member. :D

And where would we input all of this information?

So nobody ever answered, where do we catch this announcement? Is it a webcast or something?

Don't worry about it yet... Lets hear the announcement first.

I will post the announcement here once it's made.
