    Phase 1 will not start until at least Monday, so enjoy your weekend :)

    One thing you need to make sure is that you download firmware version 0x247. The first opportunity was last night, so if you downloaded the CE last night you are good. If you haven't downloaded yet, please do so tonight.

    Got word today .. Seems the Widget car developed a flat on the way to the field trial. There will be a delay that will likely last a couple of weeks, I'm sorry to say. I'll keep you up-to-date as I find out more information, but it looks like we'll be testing this after the July 4th Holiday.

    Just continued word to keep you up to date ..

    There is nothing new to report. I'm thinking it's still a couple of weeks out at the earliest, but stay tuned ...

    Lightning strikes .. Folks, DIRECTV needs some information quickly .. If you can resopond to the following post ASAP, then you will have access sooner:

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=139782

    If you do not respond quick enough, you still will get access, but it will not happen as quickly. I'm away most of this afternoon, so the best way to push this information is via posting to the thread I've noted above.

    You need to respond with your DIRECTV.com username (no passwords) ..

    Thank You.

    Everyone that has submitted their DIRECTV.com login information to me should now have access to the Widgets website.

    a note to all.. Widgets are disabled in this week's CE (October 17th and 18th) as this is a strong customer candidate.

    .. Just tested it out .. Widgets does in fact work in this release .. so it is not disabled.

    I assume you have to have typed in the keyword to make it work, though.

    Folks .. Thank You .. We have completed phase 1 of the Widgets Trials ..

    Phase 2 will be starting up soon .. I'll be posting an announcement in the general CE forum. You WILL have to sign up again if you want to continue in the trial. All information will be purged and we're going to "start over."

    So, again, thank you. Feel free to say a few parting words, but this forum will be closing in the next couple of days.

    Cheers.
