This seems to be getting lost in the threads about dialup servers being down.
I use Internet to get my guide data, and the guide ends at 8/22 8pm. Normally I get 11 days of data, so it should go out to 8/24 prime time and 8/25 daytime.
This is happening on both my 55xx units, and they're not reporting any problems connecting to the mothership.
.....time will tell.
FYI, I have no broadband access currently and rely upon dial-up (for my 5000's).
The dial-up connections have been erratic prior to the current situation (which hopefully indicates technical problems vs. a shut down of the network).
If (for some odd reason) the dial-up goes down and the broadband remains active (and reliable) I suppose I (as well as others) will need to switch to broadband (one option).
I would strongly urge everyone to keep calling (even several times a day).....
perhaps this is a test to see just how much interest still remains in the service.....
just a theory..... but food for thought!
