To get credit for watching Gotham TV do you need to watch the whole match or can you exit it and still get credit

02-25-2006, 11:16 AM
I did 10 Full matches. Just leave it on for like 20 minutes on the Gotham TV menu and it will automatically select a match and watch it for you.

After you have watched 10 matches, sign off and sign back on and you will get the achievement.

02-25-2006, 04:06 PM
Yes thats right. I believe you have to watch the whole match. ( or just leave it running as RubberJabber suggests)

02-25-2006, 10:11 PM
Thanks ill try that today

02-26-2006, 03:11 AM
I tried that today (even sat and watched 10 races because I had nothing better to do). I signed out and back in, but it didn't give me my achievement.

02-26-2006, 03:54 AM
i dont think i even watched ten before i got mine?

also dont you have to have saved one of your replays to get this

02-26-2006, 04:22 AM
I have a replay saved.

I tried that today (even sat and watched 10 races because I had nothing better to do). I signed out and back in, but it didn't give me my achievement.

I had to do like 12 races. And they have to be from start to Finish I believe. And the replay has to be an online replay, not a solo career.

I'm pretty sure my replay came from solo play and I got the achievement ???

03-02-2006, 02:09 PM
When I did mine I only watched about 10 seconds of each race, so you do not have to watch entire races. And yes you have to have a saved replay. It can be any kind of replay I believe, I used one from a single race.

03-03-2006, 05:40 PM
I had a solo saved replay, and only watched like 5-6 matches. Next time I signed in, I got the achievement, wierd.

03-05-2006, 04:31 PM
Ok already have 6 replays saved, so i watched about 12 full races fell asleep for 2 hours while still in the gotham tv menu it must have ran through a few more races while i was asleep woke up and checked my achievements nothing, came here saw i needed to sign off, so i did guide sign out/sign in...nothing went to the dashboard signed out back back in then started PGR back up nothing... went to the dashboard shutdown powered back on auto loaded PGR nothing, am i missing something? :confused:

how do you save a gothem tv replay?

03-11-2006, 01:07 PM
I dont think you can, however to get the achievement you need to save a replay of your race through solo. After the race you are given the option to watch your race and you can save it from there..

03-11-2006, 07:58 PM
i need this one still, whatdo you mean your race through solo. offline or online??

got this last night. Just put it into gothem tv and watched a ep of Sopranos (new season starts tomarrow!) then played a speed test and saved the replay. turned off my 360, turned it back on and got it. was the first speed test in offline career

03-12-2006, 09:55 AM
Yep, that'll do it :) congrats!

04-16-2006, 10:30 PM
Well guys, I guess you are my last hope. Im about ready to kill myself here, I just can't take it anymore.


Ive tried everything that you guys have posted here, everything that has been posted on other sites, EVERYTHING.

I have left my xbox on gotham heroes for countless hours. I have saved replays of myself both online and offline and watched those completely through.

I don't know anymore, im about to go crazy here, can anybody give me anything here to help me, anything at all? Please??

04-17-2006, 04:12 AM
This is simply redicuolous. I ran through the whole damn process once again, doing EVERYTHING that you guys stated, and it still hasn't been unlocked.

IM GOING CRAZY FEROM THIS BS, I started shouting when this shit didnt work.

Ive exhausted all possibilities. I don't know what else to do.

You can't save a race that you watch on Gotham TV, right?

Yo don't over work your self, delete your saved videos and watch gotham tv about 10 times. Leave ur xbox on go to sleep for like couple hours when you come back go to solo career and do 1 race watch the replay then save it. After doing that keep pressing b until your back to the main screen when you log in it should say achievement unlock.

04-30-2006, 08:22 PM
So are you saying that I should leave my xbox on for a couple hours AFTER I have watched 10 races on Gotham TV?
Or are you saying that I should just leave my xbox on for a couple of hours WHILE it is on Gotham TV?

Ok, I decided to have one last go at getting this damn achievement before I gave up forever, and I followed TIP's directions, and...


THank you for sparing me all the frusturation man, but I finally got it!

So if there is anybody else who is frusturated with this because it doesnt work, here is what you do:

-If you have any saved replays, then DELETE all of them.

-Go to Gotham TV, have it troggled to START OF RACE, and just let it run for about an hour or an hour and a half. The races will automatically start up, and then after its done, a new one will start up.

-Once you come back, exit out of Gotham TV, and go to Solo Career, and pick a STREET RACE. I picked the very first street race there is, London, Race 1.

-Do the street race (I did it on MEDIUM, I doubt that matters though), and then once the race is done, hit WATCH REPLAY. Once the replay starts up, go to SAVE, and you will get a message that the replay is saved. After this, hit the START button, and then CONTINUE, and it will take you back to the solo career screen.

-Now, just keep hitting B until you are signed out and back to the screen that says "PRESS START TO CONTINUE"

-SIgn back in, and the achievement should be there!!!

I don't understand why it didn't work for me the first million times I tried. It may be because when I saved a race, I would save an online race AND a solo offline career SPEED CHALLANGE, so maybe thats why it didn't work. Maybe you need to do a street race for it to register.

Also, I would go to SAVED REPLAYS and watch them after I ran them, and maybe that blocked the achievement from opening.

At any rate, I finally got it! I know there were some other people who were having the exact same problem I had, so hopefully this helps.

how do you save a replay when your in Heros channel? I know how to save a replay when I'm racing myself, but how did you do this in GothamTV? I never saw a feature to save replay when watching others race on GathamTV.

Thank you

you can't as far as I know save a hero's channel replay .. you have to go race your own race and save that replay

05-13-2008, 03:09 AM
screw this game and its fking achievement ive tried every and why the hell would i wanna erase all my good replays

07-20-2008, 10:55 AM
Ive checked all the Gotham TV channels each time ive booted the game up and im yet to find a single replay!! When was the last time anyone managed to see a replay on there?

07-29-2008, 07:47 AM
yeah same problem here... no replays!!!

08-07-2008, 01:52 AM
Over the past month I've been able to watch a few replays a week. I let them play the full duration each time till the race is finished. I know i've watched more than a dozen races. I've tried backing out to the "Press Start" screen, Shutting off my system. Deleting my own videos and saving new ones. I can't get this achievement. It's so bugged beyond belief... I dont think I'll end up getting it.

08-07-2008, 12:55 PM

last weekend.

I didn't see them because i was racing in the ones being shown.

the only time your able to watch gotham heros is when someone is racing in the online career.

08-18-2008, 03:00 AM
I'm watching a replay right now, on the tournament channel. You can find them, usually on weekend, they are just few and far between.

its delicious

(insert awesome solution here)

This solution totally worked. Kudos to you.

Kudos! See what I did? It's a PGR3 joke.

03-22-2010, 02:11 AM
IF ANY ONE IS OUT THERE!?! Is this chevo even possible any more?

05-13-2010, 06:10 PM
I keep getting the 'not available' screen, so I'm guessing someone switched the lights off.

05-16-2010, 08:39 PM
keep an eye on the dates / times for the tournaments
people need to be racing (either in finals or elimination rounds i think)

i managed to watch a bit earlier today so this should still be working, only another 9 times to go, wouldn't have even noticed if it didn't time out in the lobby and make me miss my slot

so this should still be achievable

*hint Next events scheduled tomorrow (16/5/10) @ 19:00 - 19:15 (ish)
