My D*Tivo recorded Cold Case at 11pm EST last night (2/21) on TNTHD. About 6 minutes into the program, the image pixellated out to video of a woman on a bed in all her glory saying, "Are your pants unzipped? Get naked with me." :eek2: After about 15 seconds, the image pixellated back to the regularly scheduled program.

Did anyone else see this? Is this an HR10-250 bug? Did someone hack the DTV or TNT feed? :confused: I'm guessing hack, based on the fact that the woman was holding a remote control.

Just curious if anyone knows what happened...

There have been reports of it over at TCF... as it certainly did happen.

But still not 100% if it was DTV or TNT-HD...

I "doubt" someone hacked into the DirecTV SAT Feed...
One "possible" reason was a transponder change, and for a brief moment, the DTV recievers tune in one of the adult networks....

But I highly doupt anyone tapped into the actuall feed itself.

PS: I am moving your thread over to the General discussion area, as it was not issolated to the Tivo powered units.
PSS: I added the RE: TNT-HD oops to clarrify that this wasn't about attempting to hack

This really did happen; it's all over every D* forum out there. I saw the screencaps, and it wasn't a remote control. It was battery operated, however... :D
