    I haven't been able to get the "Comming Soon" message on any of my receivers.

    On both my HR21-100 & the HR23-700 network services works and I get daily fortunes on both.

    However, no Widgets...bummer... :(

    Did I miss something in the CE forum about widgets? I've been working crazy hours lately (bow re-design) and I haven't been keeping up with my reading as much as I usually do.

    I vaguely remember Widgets... wasn't that a test program some time back?

    Oh yeah, that was the one we didn't get an invite to Mike...:lol:

    See what happens when they don't let us pros test it... just falls by the wayside :nono2:

    Do you have to be part of the test group to see the "Comming Soon" message?

    I'm not part of the test group; but there was a time when I saw "Coming Soon" on the HR23. I haven't seen that message in at least 3 CEs.

    I miss it.....:(

    I had it on my HR21-100 but only the "Coming Soon"(I'm not in the test group). Even when we had the pre-production units, I still was able to the "Coming Soon" on my HR21.

    I've never seen it on my HR23.

    We had some issues a while back having to re-configure the Network Services and since then I can't remember seeing the "Coming Soon" wigdet dock.

    He seems to be saying that there's no news.

    Does anyone know what the backdoor mechanism Doug mentions? :scratchin

    I lost the Widgets coming soon last CE, no such screen this CE either. Same with my HR 20-700.

    I too would have loved to test them. I hope they let CE'ers test them at some point.

    Mike,

    my best guess is that considering i get the "BONK" sound when i hit the right arrow button i think they might have disabled the widget feature in preparation for a NR. i'm sure when this hits NR and we start a new CE it will be back with a "coming soon" message.
