    What did the VOOM channels show when they shut down on April 30th at around 3:00am? (testcards?)

    The...
    I felt a momentary sadness when I woke up early (5-ish) Sunday, turn on my new flat panel tv/mon and saw that the VOOM programming had gone dark. The Moto receiver showed "No Signal" for the channels I checked, but pressing the VOOM button got the 'Sign up with Dish' message, so I called a Dish CSR from bed and had 10 of my VOOM channels back in a matter of minutes.

    Color me a happy camper! :D
