WTV-1800 Thanks to Saladman for his
contributions to this section. The wtv-1800
service is used during initial registration.
After that, the wtv-1800 IP does not appear on
the Client ShowServiecs IP list. However, if that main list is deleted, the 1800 IPs will show up
on a shorter list. It is presumed that this
shorter list is a backup should there be a need
to dial the 800#. NOTE: ANI = automatic number
identification. It's a phone system utility that
grabs your phone number.

I was testing wtv-notices:/ urls using wtv-notify: commands that Eric Macdonald just found on the viewer...he found wtv-notify:disconnect, wtv-notify:reconnect, wtv-notify:logout and wtv-notify:notices. It made sense that wtv-notices:/ would work with those commands if any service. Mail notification was the first thing that came to (eric's) mind so I tried a few urls out. Eric mailed me right after I used each one. Each test performed at least twice. Results:
Seemed to load page, then quit. Loading bar disappears and nothing happens.
No information popup, Chirped as I hit mail, new mail there, nothing noticeable
Yellow light flickered & hd rumbled as if loading something, and mail light flickered and the chirp sounded as the "no information" alert popped up.
Waited for new mail 10-15 minutes, got tired, went to homepage, noticed no wtv-center swf...maybe a coincidence, logged off. Logged back on, chirp and red flicker at splash screen, new mail waiting.
wtv-notices:/logout, followed by
wtv-notices:/reconnect: same results as previous test, but I didn't log off. After I used wtv-notices:/reconnect, the red light flickered and I heard a chirp, but I went to my mail list and there was no new mail. A minute later I reloaded and there it was. Coincidence?
"logout" had the effects we thought "disconnect" would have...any other urls give a blank popup. The sources for the wtv-notices:/ pages all have content-type: text/x-notices and go by too quickly to be copied. I never have seen any wtv-notices discussion or urls except for "Notices" DISHPlayer previewers were testing last year. But this is different. Any other results? Any oher know wtv-notify: or wtv-notices:/ urls/commands?
