Anyone noticed that the EPG (ch-101) for Monday night's Tech Forum says it's a rebroadcast?

Hope this is just an error in the EPG and not a pre-recorded broadcast.

Although it will probably have some repeated content.
How do I use my remote again? :)
[/joke]

I wonder how much they are going to step away from the tech to handle the programming questions, such as the loss of distants.

The addition of the new TWC Weather is tech enough for the forum.

I suspect the rest will be the same answers/avoidance we have become accustomed to. And yet I'll be watching it live - hopeful of something special. :)

Tech Forum is usually more interesting than Charley Chat to most of us cruising the DBS forums...
I expect this one will be hijacked with info on Distant Networks replacement plans or lack of them.

I'd be surprised if there isn't a mention of it, anyway...
