Chris, may I ask, how do you manage to play NASA TV in VLC? Since they discontinued the Windows Media stream, I've had to watch it in a browser, which makes snapping images quite uncomfortable...
Pls delete after answering  :-[

NASA TV's main channel now showing the vehicle, so they'll be heading into coverage proper soon.

Yeah, I'm still doing a lot of "screenshot, paste into MS Paint, crop, save, post" - which is a pain, but VLC seems to work reasonably well with the media channel, and I'm using this: http://www.nasa.gov/145590main_Digital_Media.asx in VLC.
