    I'll comment now.

    Yes, we know it's not Jr Pass. You are not paying for it this year, just enjoy it.

    :)

    1/43 of the field controls nearly 50% of the market. Without that channel each week, the other 3 wouldn't exist. So if you don't like him, just think of him as the ads that keep the show on the air and leave it a that.

    I'll be happy today if there is a place to watch the action during green flag commericals, if Hotpass offers that much I will be thankful.

    Well now .... since we don't have the super channel this season, when Smoke doesn't have a dedicated channel, I am gonna be bouncing tween the broadcast channel and JuneBugs channel during commericals only. At least on a dedicated channel as I read it, there will be a box in the lower corner showing the race in progress while the commercials are on.

    I think Stewart should be banned from NASCAR simply for being a Jackass..........

    If that was criteria for booting a NASCAR driver, it would be a pretty empty race today.

    Right now (1230 PT) I'm still showing "Upcoming: Title Not Available" on all 4 of the car channels. This is on an HR20-700 . Anyone else seeing something different?

    This to me seems like the exact same HotPass as the past two seasons with the exception of no announcers and its FREE

    in car audio is louder than network audio -

    no red button to choose which audio to listen to maybe team/network/both?
    this will mean we are forced to listen to commercials - and not just team audio.

    in car video/team audio/telemetry (mph/rpm/position/seconds beh leader/live position) all still there.

    except for audio issues not too bad.

    Actually there are a number of differences. Last year you had three audio options per driver channel that were controllable by the user. This year you get the audio delivered with no controls.

    No super channel this year with the 13 audio channels either.

    Last year had multiple camera angles, roaming pit reporters, etc. This year it's in-car only for that driver along with the national race.

    So quite a few differences, but it still looks good.

    So basically what your telling me is that this is Nascar In-Car the package basically before HotPass, and they brought it back just still under HotPass name.

    It would be nice if they had it in the schedule correctly, even though it is on , you can't record it to do poor man's DLB.
