    I can actually tune to channel 1096 on one receiver.

    HR21-100 - Channel Shows in Guide and comes up but it's black screen.
    HR21-200 - Can't tune to channel after update.

    Also, if I hit pause on 1096, I can pause it like a show...

    EDIT: FF, RR, looks like all the TP actually.

    Now it is black with an error dialog at the bottom right "1096 (Cintest) is currently not available." Looks like they may be working on it

    I get nothing.... I just rebooted a couple DVRs as all three of my HR20-700's no longer get 1096 after tonights CE (they all got it before).

    "Channel not available" is the theme right now. I will vote after the reboot tells the story.

    Menu reset had no results.

    I will wait until the morning. Fingers crossed.

    Again, I had 1096 before tonights CE, now I don't on 3 HR20-700's.

    Portland,...
    I get "not available" on my HR22-100 and a grey screen on my HR21-100. It'll probably be there in the AM, just needs to soak overnight. :)

    The description for Dear John has a spelling error:
    ... their correspondence triggersl consequences..."

    I noticed Crazy heart doesn't have a $, and is only 2 min long.

    The Damned United
    The Men Who Stare at Goats
    The Road
    The Slammin' Salmon
    Splinterheads

    also all appear to be free (no $) 2 min partials

    Three Kingdoms appears to be a free (no $) 1 minute partial

    Mega Piranah appears to be free, and has no run time listed.

    Not sure if they were supposed to be free on not but wanted you to know they show up as 2 min (and 1 min) on my machine. They do not say 2 min (partial) as a regular recording, but I am pretty sure the movies have a longer run time than that :)

    Not sure if this is an issue per se.
    But when looking at "The Wolfman" under In Theaters, There is no information avaialble when "Cast and Crew" is selected. It lists the actors and directors etc...but no other info.

    EDIT: I went back and re-read the "Expections" of the Field Tial Details thread. The above was expected as I found this statment. "Expanded features and functionality will roll out on ch.1096 Cinema homepage in the coming weeks "

    If you can't see anything on the channel and can at least tune to it and it does not have channel not avail on the bottom. Try hitting the guide button and with 1096 highlighted hit select on the remote. Once I did this it loaded up the On Demand menu.
