Couple of things that are puzzling. Maybe someone can square me away here .....

I usually leave a window open on my laptop at work for this board and when I get a moment, I'll check in. There appears to be a time limit to how long you can stay logged in without any activity. It also seems to be pretty short. Any info on this feature???

As well, if I check in through another computer (different IP Address), the board does not recognize that I had already viewed posts and I have to view them all again to correct it from the new IP Address. Info on this???

When you sign in, there's a check box that says "stay signed in on this computer." Check that and you should be good to go. I stay signed in for days at a time...

With your second problem, you should make sure that you are signed in. If you are signed in, it should recognize which posts youve seen before...

Thanks ..... I think I figured out that second one about 10 minutes ago. Yep, as long as you sign in it recognizes what you've already read regardless of computer.

Well you have to be a little discreet with this going on next door. For some reason setting up the lawn chair with popcorn and soft drinks for an advantageous viewing position seems to be frowned on. So was holding up placards numbered 1-10

LOL They really do use the tramp all the time in the summer. You just get used to it but I do have to admit being distracted once or twice when they were jumping in halters and gym shorts. Oh well, life goes on.

And no, I don't camp out to watch them, and not just because their brother is an Army Ranger with three tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. They're nice girls..

I'm surprised this is not "another insidious American plot".

IDK, if the Misc. thread is for all topics but.... I switched to Direct TV this past summer and am so annoyed at how long it takes for the system to switch stations. As I recalled, with Dish, the channel changes were significantly quicker. Is slow(er) channel switching the norm. Has anyone found a way to increase the channel switching speed?

I was also annoyed with the 30 second advance, particularly when watching football. I hated watching the picture fast forward. However, I did discover, or rather the Direct TV tech discovered, that there is a fix for that that pretty much fast forwards the 30 seconds instantly.

You can increase your channel switching speed if you disable the "native resolution" feature. When it's on, the receiver seeks out the proper display setting (1080, 720, etc) based on the broadcast and adjusts your picture. If you don't want it to do that, turn it off, and your switch speed may increase a bit. I'm not sure how much, but it should help a bit. Probably will never be as fast as cable, but it's worth a shot.

You can access it under Parental, Fav's & Setup - System Setup - HDTV - Video. then turn Native "off". Hope it helps.
