    :) I actually get a kick out of it... A challenge to come up with new clever answers, since I know what is going on.

    I really don't work for DirecTV... I am lucky enough to work as a software developer, with multiple montiors... and I can type about 120+ words a minute... and some of these replys are so "repetive" ... they are even faster.

    If you where to send them a card... send it to their building in LA... that is where the development team is.

    And actually yes... sometimes, I do like to see how you all flock to the honey.

    maybe there is another feature they are going to add, a usb camera in which the camera is like the one on Willy Wonka. If you hookup two cameras you could move from room to room to watch your different programs, they have the digital compression down pat.:)

    So in the situation whereby you will make it clear, will you be able to give specifics and details?

    Cheers,

    I sense there might the matter of logistics to get the OTA functionality delivered to us. Not sure if it will be via a new software update or via an authorization code of some sort, but I wonder if there is some sort of last minute planning that needs to happen to make the proliferation smooth(er).

    It sounds like OTA is essentially "ready" - but are the CSR's? Perhaps a logistical issue with training the front line?

    How's the weather in IL Earl - cold, warm or hot? :slowgrin:

    Ok - I'll shut up and listen...

    I'll chime in with what the DFW area head install tech for Mastec told me:
    "OTA causes a serious internal heat issue, that's why the delay."
    This, coming from a guy who thought 7 splices in a cable run was ok.

    Hmm, "one way" in quotes. I smell a hint. I am now completely certain that we will all be receiving traffic signs as gifts. :D

    This all feels a lot like "Q1 2003" for the ReplayTV crowd :)

    There is a "sticky" at the top of the forum list with the title "OTA Status" it is from Earl and no one else can post to it...you will find it there. No point checking 300 posts if you're not interested...just look for it there and ignore all the noise.

    I'm enjoying the noise myself (and contributing to it when I can).:rolleyes:
