    I just reactivated an D10 I had laying around (put it in the "Man's room", the garage next to the beer fridge...LOL).

    Once it was reactivated, it did the software install update and now has interactivity via the "Active" button for weather, lottery, etc. as well as working with the mix channels which is neat seeing as the H20 doesn't do this yet.

    Anyhow, just curious...what is the differences between the D10 and the D11 receivers?

    Other than the obvious things like different chassis, the D10 with the new software that you got and D11 are pretty much identical from the user standpoint. They have the same look and feel on screen.

    Don't know about the other interactive channels, but you should be able to get the mix channels on your H20 by tuning to channel 102 for the news mix, 104 for sports mix, and 111 for the kids mix.

    YOu can see teh mix channels on any receiver, but like most other receivers outside of the D10/D11, there is nothing you can do with them on an H20. Active is not "active" yet....

    On the D10/11 receviers, the "Active" button on the remote lets bring up an interactive window with "links" to local Weather, Horoscopes, Lottery, etc. Also, it enables the up/down/side buttons to work on the "Mix" Channels (Kids Mix, News Mix, Sports Mix"). You can scroll through the different channels on the Mix channels and the audio will change. Once you decide on a channel, you select it and it goes to that channel on full screen.

    I would be willing to be a firmware update for the H20 will enable this at some point. Right now, there is no weather, lottery, etc. and the only way to use the mix stations is pressing the tiny yellow button the remote, which won't let you choose a channel, but will change the audio to each of the different mix channels.

    Thanks
    Sound kinda interesting.
    So I should be able to use my "Active" button on the remote and get these local links, right?. I'll try it when I get home this afternoon.

    Your H20 allows you to cursor to the different mix channel windows, and select one so that the receiver tunes to it? Yours would be teh 1st I have heard about that does this so far. Are you sure you are understanding how the mix channels can work on an active capable reciever where active is actualy working?

    Your H20 gets the mix channels, but it doesn't have the full functionality on them that the D10/11's do. As mentioned, you can change the audio from one station to another on the mix channels with the yellow button, but that is it, as far as interactivity goes at this point.
