    I was just noticing that as well. I changed to 794 and the red button works. Go back to to 799 and it doesn't.

    Same issue here Smokes. The list of available drivers won't even come up.

    Same here. No red button option for channel 799/HD on my H20 or HR20. Red button option does appear when tuning to 794.

    Depending on the receiver, you can access to alternate audio channels via the yellow or green button, but I haven't tested these audio options to see if anything is being broadcast.

    Some channels are working using the green button. Mark doesn't speak much so its difficult to wait and then hear either Smoke or Mark or Zippy talking.

    I agree. It appears some audio channels are working, while others not. But you're right, it can be very difficult to tell who you are listening to, especially if they don't have an accent or swear. :D

    HR20 red button still not working but the green 11 audio does, although volume level is much lower than my HD11. Both are on 799.

    Wait until you do hear Smoke utter a string of words. :D Then dead air for minutes on end.

    I can switch the audio but don't know who it is. Anyone know which one J Gordon is?

    Go to 794, use the red button and count down the drivers. ESPN audio will be channel #1.

    Broken...
    That's the advantage of following Martin Truex, Jr. His audio will almost always be the first one after the Network audio!

    after going thru their playbook of reboot the rep I talked to says oh, yea. I see there is a broadcast issue. Now that they are aware of it, they will start working on it

    Well, I can understand that the csr's may not be aware of this problem, but I would hope that D* has some type of quality control dept that was already aware of this problem.....especially since this is the first week that they changed around the hotpass channels.

    Yes, not only did the red button option just pop up on channel 799 finally on my H20, but the annoying black video blips occurring every 5 seconds just quit.

    Red button on 799 seems to be working now.

    Will there ever be a week without issues???

    The season is more than half over and we STILL have issues EVERY week!
