    Just to be consistent....

    Widgets test menu does not appear in CE 0x270.

    It may just be that DirecTV has not turned them back on at their end, but they do not appear as of this time and with this CE version.

    Yea they are gone here too. I suspect that D* is gearing up for something for us. I'm sure we will get word when they are ready

    OK folks, I understand the need for consistency but I must put an end to this. Until you hear otherwise, widgets are on hold. There is no need to post it every week.

    "This just in ... Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead."

    :p

    (sorry, couldn't resist - that's what this just reminded me of as I read Stuart's post.) :lol:

    Stuart, the reason for the update was not for a new week, rather, for a new CE.

    In the CE threads themselves...folks are posting Widgets being on or off regularly, so the purpose was to just notify the folks in the group that they shouldn't waste time looking with this latest CE, as DirecTV has not activated them on their end yet.

    Perhaps a simple "don't call us, we'll call you" type note will suffice.

    - or -

    The horse is alive...just napping. :lol:

    Yeah...all well and good.....but there are tons of folks posting in all sorts of threads on this topic....so its good to have this one central place for info, but it appears a broader brush of interest exists out there too.

    In any case, Doug is circling around and we are back on track, so to the original point, we'll just go forward with his standard annoucements.

    There's only one forum for the private widget testers, so I guess I just don't understand the philosophy of creating new threads within the private forum just to say we still don't have it, especially when we have a proven subscription thread within this private forum that works to keep us informed on progress of the widget field trials.

    You may have misunderstood.

    It is mentioned and discussed outside of this area, like it or not - not something that is encouraged or appropriate, but a reality.

    We work hard to keep it in here.

    Again, in any case....we have returned to the beginning and are following Doug's original edict for information.

    Thanks.
