    I seriously doubt that as the search I am doing is on actual guide data. Maybe you have something in your GG that is not scheduled for the next two weeks, but I find that useless if it is not anyway.

    But, you can believe it if you want.

    Right... there's not even a guarantee that those prices are accurate.

    I'm guessing that won't be the last time that someone here will need to clarify that.;)

    Gentlemen, please take your private conversation to private message.

    As to the question of placeholder or not... the FPO on the image speaks to that. FPO is a design term meaning "for position only," in other words, a placeholder.

    It's also showing an HR24, so it's not even remotely accurate.

    Could you clarify what private conversation you mean? (I don't think I'm part of it, but I don't want to unknowingly overstep.)

    Feel free to PM me if you think that's appropriate.

    Sorry for the confusion. The parties to whom I referred know who they are. Mr. Bittner, you're cool :)

    Ok, now actual facts. The D* "ad" may in fact be quite real and the final price. NOBODY knows. As in, NOBODY. Outside of D*.

    "Late"? Compared to what? Did anybody say this was some kind of race or put a time stamp on the image? It is in fact an actual D* image. I didn't say it was current. It is real, direct from D*.

    Anything else is speculation, not facts. And speaking of facts, this is a fact, and current...

    Facts? How about the fact that we know the image is not real. That casts a whole lot of doubt on everything else.
    It's late because it was posted and discussed to death in this very thread months ago.
    The only fact is that the page exists. Whether the information contained on it is accurate or not is pure speculation.

    From that screenshot, its pretty clear that its the IMAGE that was FPO. While its "speculation", its been "speculated" for a long time now that $99/$5 is what its going to cost. Nobody has confirmed it. Heck... nobody has even confirmed this thing will even see the light of day PERIOD. I think thats the first thing that needs to ironed out :).

    Plenty of things have been speculated for a long time, that doesn't make them right.

    Nor does it make them wrong (or even improbable).

    What is fact is that in the absence of detailed facts from DIRECTV, the community will collectively create its own "facts". Some of the "facts" will be "happy" and some not.

    I believe the key lies in a thoughtful analysis of the "facts" as opposed to a pillorying of those who suggest or show support for them.

    Yes, posting an old image with zero context is a very thoughtful analysis. :rolleyes:

    Ok, that's funny right there.

    In seriousness...

    I do think the stars are starting to align for the THR22. Will we need a Q411 thread? I'm going to guess probably yes. But a Q1-2012 thread... I sort of doubt it.
