    Jeremy W mentioned in the original thread (which they didnt drag into this :eek2:) that eventually it will work on every channel.

    That will be nice because this is one feature i actually really do like and it is quick to respond.

    This is a PERFECT use of the technology for Sports fans. Being able to leave a score for another game on screen of something else is excellent. Only suggestion is to have option of where to place the single score box. Four corners would be flexible enough I would think.

    I tested the latency of the scores while watching Skankees vs Bosox on Saturday. It was up to date within a minute or two. That's good enough for most cases.

    Yeah, don't think the accountants are going to like that.

    What are you talking about? DirecTV gives out massively discounted HD DVRs like candy. The SD receivers cost them practically nothing to make, I don't think they're going to really care if they have to give out a few of them to make a customer happy.

    JW....In reading that article are u sure about the all channels because it sounds like it may be on TNT, TBS (due to sports on those channels) but wouldnt be on History, G4 (non sports channels).

    Also now if even if you hit EXIT u can still get the scores again after the usual 10 second load time.

    They do indeed, to new customers. I am sure if people want to sign another agreement they will be happy to send them SD boxes.
    BUT it won't be free in the long run.

    The YouTube video shows three modes for the ScoreGuide: closed, fully open, and "mini-guide". I just can't figure out how to get it down to the "mini-guide" state ... Anyone successful doing this?

    Thanks. As much as I looked at this, I never noticed the word "Minimize". :lol:

    Like I said in the other thread, it won't be via the red button when it's available on all channels. I'll just leave this image here...

    I stumbled across this as well and it made a feature I was initially excited about seem like another half baked implementation of a great idea.

    Isn't there any other way to do this to allow media share to work at the same time? 9 times out of 10 when I am playing songs through media share I have a ballgame playing on the video. But not anymore.

    You can disable it by pressing 'Exit' on your remote. Then you will be able to do what you have been doing with your music.

    To re-enable it, change to a different channel and then come back. The scores will then be available again.

    It did not work (at least with my R22). Even after hitting "Exit" when I try to bring up media share I get the same message.
