I use it a couple days a week for weather. I wish it would pull up faster (maybe be networked, instead of downloaded from sat.). I remember seeing a couple of months ago, Directv's vision for Active. I wish they would go ahead and release that.smiddy said:I was wondering, and perhaps this isn;t in the right thread, how many folks actually use the Active channel. Did you setup your zip code? How often do you use it? I looked at it yesterday for the first time since I got my HR21-200 and realized I don't ever use it. The weather seems like something I can use but I wonder if others can not get adequate weather information for it since their zip code isn't in the database. Please let me know what your thoughts are on Active; tell me the good and the bad, please!
