    I had my Genie install yesterday and last night I got my HR-44 connected wirelessly with the congratulation/Successful screen showing and its been almost 24hrs and still have not seen the Pandora and youtube apps appear.

    I have been downloading ondemand content and its populated real good but no sign of Pandora.
    I hit the - dash button and it says swim: connected ....internet connected.

    So I must be connected right,I would hope.I even opened a couple ports on my gateway/router.

    Also, ondemand can really use HD for the Primetime networks.Just watched AGT and I dont even now what aspect ratio they had that in.lol...

    it can up to 48 hours for Pandora and YouTube and sometimes even longer.

    It used to be that DOD took forever to load as well. In some instances I am noticing that some subs get DOD in a few minutes while others takes longer. Perhaps this is related to the subs internet download speed. and IMO, Pandora and YouTube should come preloaded on the system. I have seen reports where for some folks it took at least a week!

    If no joy after the wait, go through Network setup, just OK through everything. In fact, try it now if you're curious.

    Finally got the pandora,youtube update and they are pretty sweet.

    Pandora looks better through D* than my blu-ray and tv built in one.

    The youtube plays well,my only gripe is when I try to search for an artist's official video, I have to scour through a bunch of garbage listings instead of the right one just showing up first.

    BTW...Anyone know when the NFL.com fantasy app will start appearing.

    Yup, just a matter of time. Thanks for the update.

    BTW, I really do not like YouTube on DirecTV but is not DirecTV faults. Using YouTube with a remote control is very inconvenient

    Agree. Should not be seen on a "tube", but rather a flat screen HD monitor. "YouFlat", though, does not get past marketing....

    Probably the week before the opening game. It's not very good though. It just keeps track of your players that are playing in the Sunday afternoon games, not Sunday night or Monday or Thursday. You will get much better coverage on line at whatever site your fantasy league is on.. If you're asking about RedZone it will show up for opening Sunday.
