    Yeah I have it on TNT. The audio went out for 5 minutes or so, then they said they were having audio difficulties. The audio is back... but not back to normal.

    I did figure out that the driver audio channels are in the order they are listed on the HotPass page on the DirecTV website. Still a PITA that the special features are not working as advertised.

    I'm there with you in the frustration... I wish they'd get this right. Very frustrating not being able to tell who is on which audio channels via the on-screen menus. :mad:

    Wonder if this is related to a software upgrade, or to the change from Fox to TNT?

    Whichever, I am in the same boat, I have the channels, when I hit Green I get:

    English 1 DD
    through
    English 14 DD

    No way on the screen to tell who you are choosing.

    Come on DTV fix this.

    It just popped up on the screen so they got it fixed... 1 hour and 12 minutes into the race.

    Broken...
    Remember, it's the first week with a new production team, and TNT has not been known for having the best productions, IIRC.

    Not for me here.

    I have HR21-700 0x0230 firmware, installed on 6/3/08. This is the first race since the new firmware release, so I bet the problem for me is in the firmeware.

    All I get when I hit red is an error "bonk".

    Never mind, now. I changed channel and came back to 799 and I have the audio options on the red button. They must have fixed whatever the problem was, but you apparently have to change the channel to get it to come back.

    Change channels and change back. Sometimes that helps.

    Its been like this since the beginning for me ,it seems after watching it for several minutes the colored buttons quit working and the only way I could get them to function again was to change channels.You would think by now they would have found a fix,:nono2:
