I agree that the pictures are a distraction, they are alright, however I would really like the option to black out if I choose to, especially when we have company over.
has anyone been able to figure out if we can black out the pictures on the Galaxy music channels? I don't mind them but I would like to be able to black the pictures out if we have company over like we used to be able to. any help you can offer would be great! other than that once I found out I wasn't receiving the proper signal and that is why I couldn't programme anything to tape,I don't mind the upgrades.
Also as u know seeing u already posted in the other tgread, no there is no way unless like Pauly said, connect the home theater system to the box and turn off the TV.

I use a harmony remote and had it programmed to turn off the TV on galaxie. All of a sudden the galaxie channels would not work with the TV off. Turns out the problem is rogers in one of their software upgrades(?) enabled two way HDMI communication so if TV is off program does not start. (component not available). I Solved the problem by exchanging the HDMI cable for a component cable (dumb cable only one way communication). Now everything is good again.
