    The full image in the bottom left will only come up once. After that, it's just the small one in the bottom right.

    It's only there for a few seconds when you first tune to the channel.

    Subject: DIRECTV ScoreGuide(TM) Provides Sports Fans with the Ultimate Navigation Tool at the Push of a Button
    From: newsdesk@broadcast.shareholder.com
    Sent: Mon 4/27/2009 11:19 AM

    [FONT=&quot]EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Apr 27, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The little red button on the DIRECTV remote is about to come up big for sports fans.
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]That's how DIRECTV customers with advanced receivers will activate ScoreGuide(TM), a new on-screen feature of DIRECTV's industry-leading program guide. Launched today, ScoreGuide enables fans to easily track scores and start times of major sporting events, see a list of channels carrying each event and tune directly to those channels. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Viewers will be alerted to ScoreGuide by a small on-screen icon and have access to the new feature on more than 200 DIRECTV sports channels, including regional sports networks, DIRECTV sports subscription channels (channels 700-799), and national cable networks that primarily cover sports.
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]ScoreGuide, offered compliments of DIRECTV, displays a lineup of sporting events in progress, as well as upcoming daily and weekly events. ScoreGuide also provides DIRECTV channel numbers associated with each of the events and allows customers to tune to those specific channels with the push of a button on their remote control. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]ScoreGuide can be minimized to show just one game at a time, and if a viewer chooses, can also be left open as a visual means of tracking a specific game. Each day presents a new schedule of daily events, and weekly events are updated every Thursday. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Sports on ScoreGuide will include: NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, top 25 college football and basketball, tennis (men's and women's Grand Slam event quarterfinals and later rounds), golf (PGA Tour majors) and next season, NASCAR(R).
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]DIRECTV has been a front-runner in the development of advanced television features and services, including its popular NFL SUNDAY TICKET(TM) SuperFan(R), MEGA MARCH MADNESS(R) and NASCAR HotPass(TM) services. The nation's No. 1 satellite TV service also offers exclusive interactive services for the world's most popular annual sports events, including golf's four majors and tennis' four Grand Slam events. The development of ScoreGuide -- a first for television -- is simply another in the long line of technical innovations from DIRECTV. [/FONT]

    I use a Harmony - will I just need to update my Harmony to see that available option (scoreguide) and map it to my remote OR will it already work on my Harmony without the update?

    Since it uses the "RED" button to activate it, if you already have that mapped on the Harmony it should work without any changes.

    One thing that I don't like is that this new "interactive feature" disables the ability to activate media share on all channels with Score Guide enabled.

    I used to put a game on, with music as a 'background'. Now I can't do that.
    Certainly not the end of the world - but really annoying.....

    Thanks, dbmaven - that helps! Yeh, that is a bummer with media share - I don't use it but it's always a bit stinky when you're used to doing a certain activity and then it goes away.

    ..and it almost worked. I started watching the basketball game on TNT. kept trying the red button for about 10 minutes. Switched over to something in ESPNHD (hockey if I recall) and the button started to work. So... I looked through the scores, saw the game score for the game on TNT and selected to watch it. Lost the ability to use the ScoreGuide again...

    So apparently it is sometimes one way. Almost useful.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think it's active on TNT. It's only active on many of the 'full time' sports channels for now.........

    It works but the last few days I've definitely noticed my receiver isn't as responsive to my remote presses. Never had this issue in the past and the only "change" to my setup is this new feature in the receiver. Sometimes it'll work as normal but it definitely happens enough for me to notice it.

    Well, I said it before in the other thread. I like the feature, but do not like the fact that they are doing popups for it. There should be a way to disable them in teh setup menu. I figure once the thing pops up a few times or even once, the user knows about it, right?

    I agree, I am finding the pop up that appears everytime I switch to a full time sports channel really annoying. Especially since I will not be using the score guide hardly ever, if at all.

    Some functions don't work when an interactive layer is active. Like INFO. Hit the exit or clear button on your remote to get rid of the interactive layer. You will then notice responsiveness again. If you want teh scoreguide back, you have to change channels or hit the guide button and rechoose the program you are watching.

    Often the popup is benign. I don't like the big one with the picture of the remote but the little one that just has a red button and the tip on it are fine. No more an issue than the banner showing up when you change channels.

    I've tried it the way your picture shows and it is MUCH slower to respond...the red button is much quicker...I'd love it to be available as your picture shows so there is no pop-up but currently it is way too slow...

    One of my neighbors was just over here and we got to talking about TV. He has the lame local cable and was telling me they had Travel Channel HD, which many of us are wanting real bad. I had to come back with something, so I turned the TV and my HR20 and showed him ScoreGuide. He was impressed with it, and said that the cable company better come out with something like that soon, or he would be looking into DirecTV.
