Agreed, and it seems it's time to put the old Camry out to pasture and get a new Lexus. The "Server Busy" messages have increased dramatically in the past few days.

Between our CES coverage and Elvis, the server is getting hit pretty hard. Sorry about that. There is a server upgrade in the works but it will take some time.

all the more reason for each of us frequent flers to pony up. I have additionally pledged a $50 donation in Earls name the day DLB is added :)

Oh, no worries here Chris. I'm an IT Guy by trade, so I understand what it will actually take to get this done from a technical perspective. In addition, the nature of the forum won't necessarily lend itself to a quick turnaround.

Kudos to all involved, I'm just being a squeaky wheel but I'm still happily spinning along. No apologies necessary.

Cheers.

I missed most of last night because I play Basketball (pickup) Monday nights. I caught the tail end, and hope to make it in tonight for some time if the family lets me.

Back to topic...

A lot of folks here showed their appreciation for the previous "Santa" events by subscribing, and if you weren't one of them, please consider doing so now. This is the best user forum I've participated on in years, and it's the only one I'm aware of that's so closely monitored and appreciated by the manufacturer. Because of tireless work by Earl, Clint, Donnie, and of course Chris, the developers have listened to us and are working with us to get this device as good as it can be.

This is much more than just a place to rant, it's turned into a real forum. That's got to be worth 3 trips to starbucks to ya.

Listen...

We do "this" for some crazy reason, that we enjoy to do it.

If you feel so incline to join the DBS Club... great... you get a couple little perks (more PM Message space, and some additional "chit-chat" areas, including a spot to sell your old stuff)

If you don't join the club..... no big deal. You will still get the same level of information from all our areas.... Heck... you don't even have to be a member to read the threads... only to post.

Thank you all for making DBSTalk grow in quantity, but most importantly... in quality.

Well I figured I would post in this thread to bring the maturity level down a little. :lol:

Heck I didn't even know the RC drop was happening last night because I couldn't get into the forums for any decent amount of time due to the Server being so busy. I would much rather miss the RC and have the server busy with all of you fine people posting and contributing, then to just be in the forum where only Chris, Earl, Donnie and myself post. Would be entertaining for the first day, the next day they would probably ban me. :)

I couldn't get into the chat room. It sounded like it was fun.

Good morning all. I have been here for quite a few months. I have enjoyed the Santa updates, and follow the discussions on the board multiple times per day. I logged in last night to see that dbstalk was celebrating Elvis' birthday. I took advantage of that too. I read all of the messages about server busy, etc. Long story short, I finally became a club member! lol

Thanks guys, for everything you do, and information you give. This board is an INVALUABLE resource for Satellite TV customers!!

You can pay the $15 annual membership to DBSTalk through your PayPal account directly or through a Credit Card or Bank Account. Once you have paid, you can have the DBSTalk Club Member under your name. I look to see if the person is a supporter when I am read their post.

DBSTalk gives away all that it can without any charge. It is totally up to you if the information you get here is worth the cost of a cup of coffee each month. For me, just knowing about 0x115 or 0x104 alone was worth way more than $15. I have asked them to consider offering higher membership levels like AVS does.

Click the Support link below if you are interested. It takes about a minute.

I brought the "We should all make contributions" thread back to life in the General Fourum. Hey, I'm trying to stay on topic.
