    Just curious if Supercast works with IE8. I know it's in beta but I'm afraid to put it on any of my systems. Any takers or can a mod check to see that it's being tested internally?

    Check out http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=137904&page=2. My post is the first one. I use IE 8 right now.

    Edit: Since my post I decided to try some suggestions out within IE 8 Beta 2. I went to Tools, Compatibility View Settings, and unchecked Display intranet sites in compatibility view. I then tried Supercast again and, surprisingly, was able to get the RZC feed. In addition, all the stats are there, but updating infrequently. So I guess IE 8 Beta 2 will work, just have to get the correct setting. Or maybe DirecTV changed something since I tried. Not sure at this point.

    What's IE8? .. Nah, I haven't heard, but I'd guess that you are on your own with a Beta browser at this point.

    I've been using IE8 Beta 2 since it came out, and it's been great. It works fine with Supercast, too.

    That's encouraging.

    I have a simple rule not to use any new operating system or browser until at least SP2 appears. :D

    I tried to install it, but my Mac wouldn't run the EXE file. ;-)

    On a positive note, the WWW client works great with Safari!
