  1. Just finished watching "Chesley Bonestell: A Brush With The Future", which, as of this posting, is currently on Amazon Prime. I found it to be an enlightening and enjoyable film about someone whose work has touched architecture and art, movies and space exploration, and so much more. Hadn't realized how many things he was responsible for or had a hand creating. I kept surprising myself each time I learned a new fact and said out loud "no way" or "cool". A great reminder that no art is ever truly created in a vacuum. I found it to be a rather delightful documentary and at 1h 35m a pretty qui
  2. Thanks @Westlyn - hadn't seen that. I'll submit a ticket too. Hopefully, if everyone having a problem submits a ticket they might get the message. Cheers!
  3. Hi Westlyn - not an Apple problem. I've experienced it with an Andriod tablet, Android phone, and a Windows 10 laptop. This is ABSOLUTELY a TCM problem. How am I so sure? Because I can log into my provider's service directly (in this case, DIRECTV - west coast) and watch the live stream of TCM. I asked my sister to log in to her provider (Comcast - East Coast) and she was able to watch the stream online as well. The common denominator is TCM - both app and website - "watch live" functionality. I too can view the films on demand. Just not the live stream. The problem I'm running into is wh
  4. thanks for the info. I had the 2017 app installed and I see that it was updated yesterday. As for the emails, I haven't received any from TCM -- on ANY topic -- for almost a year. Sounds like I need to get in touch with them. thanks again!!
  5. Thanks for sharing. Would you mind terribly if you shared what email you received that information in? I ask as I've had to sign up for the monthly "Now Playing" newsletter five (5) different times now and yet I've only gotten 2 out of 8 newsletters for all my troubles. Was curious if I've missed communications that would be helpful and interesting. I'd be most grateful.
  6. Question for TCMFF 2018 staff: I see that there is a TCM Festival app for last year's event (TCMFF 2017). Was curious if we could expect an updated version for this year's TCMFF, as well as when we might expect it. Thanks!
  7. 45 minutes in line?!?!? and then I still MIGHT not get a seat?? is this from first-hand knowledge (you've had this pass before and waited in line for almost an hour beforehand?) and of course, there are always possible cheaper alternatives. I mentioned that in my original post. my main point was that overall this seems to be a rather expensive event to attend - cheaper alternatives included. similar to the backlot program - not sure I see the value at $90 a year. I think they'd be better off making both the festival and the fan club more affordable, but that's probably what comes f
  8. I was interested in attending this year's event but I'm not sure I can justify the expense. Festival Passes look to be $299, $649, $799, and $2149 Using the code for the TCMFF2018, rates at the Roosevelt Hotel are currently listed at $1,200 per night. (last week they were $500 per night). Flights from Northern California will run about $300 Rental car for five days would be $400 So, without taking into account food, drink, and miscellaneous expenses, I'd be looking at $8850 for the Spotlight pass. ($7500 for the Essential pass). Does anyone else find this to be a
  9. That's not a heck of a lot of information. Do you have anything else? actor/actress name? the name of their character(s)? black & white or color? what are they wearing? how did they end up in that particular scene? what were they doing before then? after then? Would love to help if there was just a little bit more info.
  10. Does anyone know when the 2018 TCMFF dates will be announced? Not interested in what the 'possible', 'probable', or 'usual' dates might be - as that doesn't really help much when you need to firm up schedules. Rather I'm specifically looking to know when we can expect the dates to be announced. With both SXSW and ComicCon having already been announced (March and July 2018, respectively), I would have thought that the dates for TCMFF would have already been made available. Any chance someone from the TCMFF or TCM can speak to this? THANKS!!!
  11. THANK YOU Perlyn!!!!!! I was actually in a chat session with Comcast about this again - AT THE SAME TIME you posted this! I feel like an idiot trying to explain to them that a SINGLE channel is out of sync! And the HD channel at that, NOT the SD channel. I've explained that there are others experiencing the same issue.... Yet they always start the same way... "Is you cable box plugged in?" "Is it powered on?" "Have you rebooted your system?" AARRGGHH!!!!! The ONLY channel I wanted from Comcast was Turner Classic Movies. In order to get it I had to get their 3rd or 4th highes
  12. Hi Larry - thanks for chiming in. Just a couple of points... Wrong forum: perhaps, but I've always felt it was more important to have all pertinent information in a single place whenever possible. Showing that this impacts more than one person, at various times, will hopefully point out that this is a larger problem. One that requires immediate attention. At this point, we're all better off if anyone having issues with TCM HD Channel 789 delivered via Comcast/Xfinity cable add to this particular thread. Power in numbers sort of thing. Packet breakdown: Not exactly. The answer you passe
  13. June 17 at 1:15pm PDT - happening again. Audio is out of sync. This is only happening on the HD channel. The SD channel is fine. It's just slightly off but enough that it's ridiculously painful to watch. Is there someone that we should contact when this happens? I realize it's a feed problem so when I call Comcast/Xfinitiy support desk there is NOTHING they can do. This is SOOooo frustrating!!!!!! edit: I'm in Northern California, in case that matters
  14. The song is called "Cruise" from the band Beasts With No Name. I love learning about new bands and songs from the promo's. Whoever is putting these together - WELL DONE!!! Keep up the great work!
