    I like the car camera views, just add seperate audio.

    I watched 795 during the last commercial, and you could still hear the team audio.

    I'm with you on this one. I really miss being able to hit the green button and make Larry Mac go away.

    I'm sticking with the network today as I'm not particularly interested in the featured drivers. If and when Hamlin, Labonte, Logano, Stewart or Newman show up, I'll watch free Hotpass. (And yes, I know Labonte will NEVER show up as a featured driver.)

    I miss the audio.

    Yes, and a very talented jackass with two championships in Winston/Sprint/Nextel Cup not to mention all his other championships.

    If NASCAR banned the jackasses, the stands would be empty.

    Anyone else having problems with the Quicktune feature and hotpass channels can't get mine to work on HR21-100.

    I wish they would get the audio level equal to other channels. Right now it is 5 or 6 bars lower than the fox audio is on the main network channel, so switching from Hotpass back to the network blows me out of my easy chair. :(

    Yes, same issue. Can't tune via quick tune, but can direct enter the channel.

    can't get mine to work either. I'm having to tune directly by entering the channel numbers and hitting select.

    It's neat I wouldn't pay for this though, I hope it was better as a pay service.

    I would have to say this year's is better than last year's, so far. The biggest change is that they got rid of the annoying no-name announcers on the individual driver channels. That too me would have been worth paying for.

    We'll have to wait until a real driver has his own channel to see how the censoring has improved, if it has.

    Yeah the audio is all over each other. Its free and they say you get what you pay for.

    At least let me select either Fox or Spotter. Dumb move DirecTV! :nono:

    I miss the in-car sounds, where's my engine noise. They need to drown out the announcers some, this is like last year's hotpass audio, announcers talking over the communications. Fox guys love to talk so turn down their audio level if I can't get multiple audio feeds.

    Finally figured it out I set up Quicktune channels this morning after the race started got the channels but no picture.Went back and had to set another channel like tnt in the Quicktune box then go back and reset the Hotpass channel again in Quicktune. Very weird!
