    When will the "Active" button on the H20 be activated?

    The active button was turned on with the last two CE releases. If you do a search for CE you will get all the information about CE releases. The next national release will have the active button turned on.

    H20 - In mid-2007, a software download will add DIRECTV Active to the H20.

    The most recent CE release has gone much better than the last one did, so I'd say it will be rolled out nationally very soon.

    When I had TW with a DVR it had a Live button to jump to the live broadcast if you rewound some. Is the Active button going to be the same?

    No, the Active service is a special screen where you can navagate with your remote and get the weather, lottery #s, and some other stuff.

    The H20 isn't a DVR, so you can't get behind live time. If you have an R15 or an HR20, you can get to live time by holding down the 30 second skip button for a few seconds.

    The "Active" button is not yet functional on the H20. When functional, it will bring you to a page that lists weather and provides links to other items like lottery results, horiscope, help/info.

    Also, when "active" content is enabled, you will be able to navigate the news-mix and sports-mix channels - highlighting each channel to hear it's audio and pressing select to jump to that channel.

    There are also other features specific to the various sports packages (Sunday Ticket, NASCAR, Extra Innings, Center Ice.....) and some interactive PPV previews and such. Oh, there is also the Game Lounge, which isn't active on the HR20 yet or the CE release for the H20.

    The active button is not yet working. But once it is working, it will tell you to upgrade to a newer receiver model.

    It has been activated with the CE software. Hopefully the software will go national soon.

    Any news on this topic?
    I had two HR20-100's installed July 6.
    Both downloaded updates within a few minutes but still no interactive capability.

    Do you have a HR20 or H20? If you have a HR20 it has been active. If you have a H20 the new software for the -100 model is starting to role out across the country and it will activate the interactive stuff. So if you do have a H20-100 you will get it soon.

    So it just hasn't made it to your "area" yet, but will...
