As a new subscriber to DirecTV I am interested in the Nascar Hotpass. I will definitely have to give it a look see this upcoming weekend to see if it is worth the money to me.

Question, Can you DVR the Hotpass channel of your choice? I tend to be out and about with the wife during the race and have to watch it on my DVR afterward.

Recording doesn't usually work. Many have tried. I think it has something to do with the audio options.

Works fine for me. I have two DVR's and use one to record two feeds every week and watch them during the week. I watch Jr's feed live, then watch the broadcast and the two other incar feeds later that I have recorded. Means I end up watching the race four times, but I'm a nutcase. :)

Works for me. I typically setup a manual recording when I do it.

I've only recorded it a couple times. Never any issues. Once was with my 10-250 and last time was on the 21-700.

I stand corrected. I guess my assumptions that it doesn't work were a result of reading complaints in the main Hotpass thread.

I can do a manual record too. Didn't work for me using the guide :( .

I always use the guide, but actually didn't this week because I forgot and hit record after it started.

No, you are correct and the others are wrong. Sure, you can record it, but none of the audio or other interactive features work when you watch the recorded Hotpass channels... or even if you are watching it just a few seconds or minutes behind in the "live buffer".

I've recorded it and went back and listened to other audio feeds. I guess you just did it wrong.

I've noticed that to get the audio feeds to work after I've paused the action or went back that I'd sometimes have to hit the replay button. It's just a matter of manipulating it a bit.

One question I would like to ask. Can you change between camera angles? In the Hotpass FAQ, is said there were four different angles.

This will be the first time I get to use Hotpass, so I was a little curious.
SHARP Aquos LC-52D62U 52" LCD
SHARP Aquos LC-32D44U 32" LCD
HR20-700 (2)
H21-100

Cannot change angles. They usually show 3 views at a time.

Just for entertainment value - they should have the Juan Pablo channel. I bet that dude is hilarious. "Oh no you did not - no one cuts off Juan Pablo..."

One time during a Busch race last year JPM's crew chief told him to ease up on pit road and let some of the other cars go by.

Juan's reply was: "Hell no...hell no. If you are looking for that type of driver I am not your guy."

It was hilarious.

What is used for video on the Audio channels? I have seen the 4 camera angles being backhauled to somewhere along with a quad split of at least 3 in one picture.

The driver audio channel is the Network feed. You can choose from a list of 13 drivers and hear the team audio and network audio simultaneously.
