Get your "thinking caps on"
Isnt Directv Shutting down the HD DNS channels on November 1st for the central time zones/eastern....
Ok, my thinking cap is on
Lets see. You are the only one telling us Nov. 1st, you do not site a source, and Earl (Who has contact with the development team of the HR-20) is telling us not Nov. 1st.
You claim that HD-DNS channel are being shut down on Nov. 1st for Central/easter time zones. Where did that come from? I have not heard that from anywhere else. I thought DNS would be around until all HD stations are up on the new Sats. (Earl indicated DNS would start to go away in 2007)
hmm Who would be the more reliable source of information??? : I GOT IT Earl
Maybe this question has been answered before but why was it not enabled in the first place?
That would be kinda like the dealership telling me I can use the cruise control or the radio until 2 months from now. It's there...but ya just can't use it!
FWIW...you can't tell me because it wasn't tested. Trust me..it was tested with it activated during development of the box.
Because they where not satisfied with it's performance.... And it need more work before it was ready to go.
Similar to how the DTivos where first release without Dual Tuner support.
You know it was tested while in development, but they felt that at teh time of the release it wasn't good enough to go with the release.
The reason is because this POS was released before it was ready. Its really baffling though how something as simple as an ATSC OTA tuner didnt work .
