    My TV apps are rock solid and are pretty fast too (much, much faster than when they first came out).

    For what the apps does, it is fast enough. The team apps do a lot more than just give scores. That is much faster to do with the scoreguide on a sports channel.

    Yes, but the beauty of TV Apps is you can bring them up on any channel or during playback of recorded content, which is very handy if you're recording 2 shows but still want to check the score of your team(s).

    They will not come up on Weather Channel or the two mix channels, because of the active status of those channels.

    Sure they will. Hit exit to clear the interactive layer then the right arrow. I just did it on both the weather channel and MLB mix.

    Actually, when they do work, they are usually fairly fast. Unfortunately, more often than not, it says "loading tv apps" then that goes away and nothing happens. Once that starts, it doesn't go away until the next firmware update.

    That is what is great about this forum. We all try different things and tell each other about them.

    Even through a reboot? I've never seen that happen. The only issue I have had with TV Apps is that sometimes they don't completely clear right after I've exitted and it slows my DVR down. I found the best way to fix that is to go back into TV Apps and re-exit. Seems some stuff keeps running sometimes.

    I have had this happen twice during the last 2 weeks. I also loose the "Locals on the 8's" and Scoreguide along with the TV Apps. But a menu reboot always brings all 3 of them back.

    I hope this is accurate, because its way over due. Also, my TV Apps work fine and are much faster then they were in the past.

    Agreed. Bring on the NHL App.

    Although I do have to get my TV apps working in the first place...

    I think the problem is more along the lines that many people (and many new customers especially) can't even get the TV Apps to work at all. I fall under that category.

    Wrong forum - this should be in "Connected Home", no?

    I think they were showing that you can get to it even if you weren't watching hockey.
