    Somebody likes all the SD duplicates on. I always hide them, that way you get more channels on a page in the guide.

    You miss stuff on a couple regional networks, if you care, if you hide SD duplicates. I have all channels shown but a favorites list with the HD version of every channel except FS Wisconsin and FS Oklahoma because those channels are weird like that. I have those channels duplicated HD and SD that way. Also, when the signal goes away occasionally, going to the "All channels" brings the SD versions up much faster than going to the menus. It is rare (monsoon) that the SD channels go away.

    Minor programming, but part of the Sports Pack (and local to those in the home territory).

    I think you're seeing the glare. From the couch and all seats in the living room, you see no glare on the TV when sitting, except for the middle of June to the beginning of July for a few minutes in the afternoon. Intentional planning on that front. But when you stand up, like to take a pic, there is glare from the windows during the day, like when I took these pics.

    LOL, I thought I was missing something buried in the settings, that would look really cool if it were transparent

    Sitting having breakfast and this pulled up. The fellow who got out was wearing a "Death Star" shirt.

    They certainly do not want anyone else using it. :)

    The previous reply still stands. Protect your trademarks or lose them.

    Speculation that this changes anything planned is just that. Speculation. No proof.

    I saw a van with the old Cyclone and Directv nomenclature yesterday. I thought they would have repainted them all by now.

    I have always said it would make no sense for AT&T to get rid of the Directv name, which is well known and has a pretty good reputation. The articles claiming they were changing the name to "AT&T Entertainment" all sourced back to AT&T talking about a shuffling of their corporate structure and putting Directv under a division called "AT&T Entertainment". For some reason people assumed that meant Directv itself was changing its name. While AT&T can change the name if they want, changing it to something as dry as "AT&T Entertainment" is about as likely as Ford's next car being called the Ford Sedan.

    The DIRECTV logo is alive and well on the service trucks in my area.

    MasTec trucks in my area (northern Indiana) changed fairly quickly. But I have seen a couple of trucks with a Cyclone as late as this weekend ... I could not tell who owned the trucks.

    Here in the Denver area I have seen one AT&T truck but everything else is still DirecTV. The DirecTV call center has been relabeled AT&T, an interesting note on that is that as the building sits right next to Interstate 25 it had signs on both sides of the building. The sign on the street side was changed to AT&T but the sign on the Interstate side was just removed. It is now an anonymous office building

    My HR44-500 changed to the death star icons with software 0x0ba6 but after I received 0x0ba7 last night the icons are back to the DirecTV cyclone. This is located in Monterey Park, CA which is a suburb of Los Angeles.
