The majority of posters here are E* subs thats why theres so much Dish Net discussiojns going on. The only other place I know of that has a seperate D* forum is The DirecTiVo Forum over at Tivo Community Forums, most of the conversation there as you can imangine is about DirecTiVos but there is some programming chat that goes on there.

Also, if you are into NNPT (Usenet newsgroups)

alt.dss (all direcTV though the hackers have pretty much taken over)
rec.video.satellite.dbs (mostly DirecTV though it is supposed to be a "neutral" newsgroup. ) This is where many people from alt.dss have landed after the hacker take-over. Though alt.dss still has lots of legal info,

See ya

:welcome: Welcome to DBS Talk.

Yes, there is a forum just for DirecTV users, just like there is a forum for Dish users. However, many of the issues (programming, etc.) apply to both systems.

Most ISPs have Usenet access. They are all a little different in set-up. But if you use Microsoft Outlook Express (not Outlook) there is a newsgroup reader built in. Go to "Tools" on the menu bar and Click on accounts. You can set up the news reader there. You'll need the NNTP server name for your ISP. I have One Net and its NNTP server is "Supernews.one.net". You need to find out what it is for you.

Or you can just go to www.google.groups.com There is a free web sased newsreader there. Slow and inefficient, but it does the trick.
