    I sent a PM to Doug requesting that someone post a technique to enable channel 1096 for the many of us who still can not receive the channel. I guess all we can do is wait.

    After running the IAMANEDGECUTTER keyword search two hours ago my HR24-500 running 3DF is now able to see 1096. However it says "There are no matching programs at this time." Maybe my other two receivers will also be able to view 1096 pretty quickly because I ran the search on those a few minutes after the HR24.

    I can't get it to work at all. I haven't been able to get the TV apps to work either maybe that's a whole another issue as well. Channel 1096 says its not available. Also I havent downloaded any firmware for the receiver as well as I missed that last time it was available.

    Check out Larry Flowers post! I did exactly what Larry advised and had to wait almost 18 hours for results but it worked.

    I get to network services and run the test and I get an error code of 701 on my receiver. I went ahead and did the keyword search and nothing changed after a reboot of my receiver. I have HR21/100 receiver.

    I re-did IAMEDGECUTTER and now have 1096 on 2 HR20-700s and 1 HR22-100.

    However, I still do not have 1096 on my main DVR which is also an HR20-700. On that DVR I have an 1 TB eSata drive hooked up and I did a red button reset on that DVR as well. I did not reset the other DVRs.

    All DVRs are running Software 0x3e5 which is the latest CE.

    You might want to be sure you entered the IAMANEDGECUTTER code correctly on the main machine. I went back to one of the 4 receivers not yet getting 1096 and discovered on that one, I had typed in IAMANAEDGECUTTER..

    Strange occurance - I was watching a show on DirecTv when a message popped up that stated that the DVR was acquiring guide data. This interrupted what I was watching as the screen became blue. After I exited out of that I saw that I now had 1096 on the one HR20-700 that did not have it. However, all of my other DVRs display a selection screen on 1096 while the DVR that just now has 1096 can only display a blank black screen.

    No movies listed here yet. Greg has posted that the trial hasn't started yet, so I guess we won't see any movies until it does.

    I saw a handful of movies listed on my HR24 last night, but tonight on my HR22 there appears to be a good number available.

    Ok, so I have channel 1096 on all dvrs, even ones that aren't on a ce....

    I however, can only get in theaters on the hr20-700 that is on the latest ce, and that unit also has some movies listed, while non of the other dvrs list any movies on the channel.. I went ahead and added 13 movies to the que, just for fun... :)
