    The Messages function of the HR20 works. Yesterday, I got a message saying there would be a free preview of NASCAR HotPass this weekend.

    I'm glad the messages work, but I was hoping for some information I was interested in.

    Oh well, one thing at a time.

    Cool! I don't have any messages, so you must be special. ;)

    How did you notice it? Envelope in the info bar? Anything in the MENU that you noticed? Or did it pop up like a caller-id alert or something?

    I noticed the little envelope in the info bar was solid instead of empty. Easy to miss if you're not looking. Then I had to drill through the messages and setup menu to find it.

    FYI: This must be a system-wide change since this thread has been moved to the HR20 general forum.

    It's at least a HR20-wide thread... :)

    Cheers,

    I'm happy to report I haven't received any messages. Just what I need... more SPAM from DirecTV! Not.

    I went out for a while today and I when I got home there was a message on my answering machine. It was from D* telling me about the free Hotpass this weekend.

    I haven't checked the HR20s yet but I got a pre- recorded message on the phone from D* just after lunch today about the hotpass stuff. Yawn.

    I got a voice mail from D* telling me that they were going to add some baby channel to my package for only $4.99 per month. I have no idea what that is all about, and it better not show up on my bill. I don't see how they can just add a package to my service without my consent. I already pay $125 per month to these folks. Enough is enough!

    I got that same message. And then a day later they called to apologize saying they made a mistake and that I was not signed up and would not be charged.

    ...you know, the blue thing at the top when you press "INFO". Look at the right side, there are icons for sound, messages, and parental controls.
