    If I understood incorrectly, sorry, but you say we have more keys. Is there enough for 2 a person or just keep to 1? Thanks.

    I see you said 2 is fine. Thanks again for DirecTV for this accommodation for us. It is appreciated for those of use who use multiple machines.

    Download and install went fine on my laptop. I will install the software on my new desktop next week after I get my processor and install it.

    Now if I could just get "It's a small world after all" out of my head, I'd be batting a thousand......:lol:

    Hate to nitpick, but that was actually fixed in 3920 as well ;)

    DirecTV application still hangs my system for about 15 seconds upon launching and quitting. It's getting quite annoying now. If suggestions for fixing it or for how to gather performance data while the application is launching/quitting can be relayed by the mods to the developers it would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit: I noticed there is a good amount of hard drive activity during these system hangs (only when quitting, doesn't seem to be any activity during the launching hangs), but since my screen does not refresh at all during them I am unable to look in task manager to see which process may be the culprit.

    Still unable to playback any recordings with my 2nd display enabled. Still receive error message "Unknown error". HD recordings do not display anything at all, but I just tried playing an episode of South Park and that played for about 1/2 a second before stopping and showing the error message.

    Is 5.1 channel audio supported? If it is, it doesn't seem to be working with my system.

    Edit: On Smallville in HD actually it was only outputting in stereo, but Late Nite with Conan in HD was outputting from my left, right and center channels but not my 2 rear channels.

    I now am getting different error messages depending on what monitor I have the program on. On one monitor I get the same message as always which is the "unknown error" message. On my other monitor I am now getting the error below. Hope dual monitors are eventually supported.

    I'm guessing one of your displays is not HDCP compliant?

    Both are HDCP compliant and both are hooked up DVI. In fact, they are both the exact same monitor. If I disable either one, the other plays just fine alone. With both on, one gets that error and the other gets the unknown error.

    Dreamscene still broke for Nvidia graphics card after loading this version.

    Dreamscene still works fine on ATI graphics card.

    Wonder if the problem is with the video cards?

    Cheers,
