    The 721 stores the ones already posted as well as the ones to be posted. I have found no way to clear the ones already posted.

    Are you saying this issue also pertains to the 921 and you are thus requesting a new feature, "Clear All PPV History"?

    If it's just a 721 (only) issue, then the 921 forum is not the appropriate place for such an inquiry.

    This reminds me of a co-worker who ordered an "adult" movie while his wife was out of town, then realised she'd see it on the list when she got back. So he ended up watching a bunch of PPVs to push the bad movie below the fold. He told me at the time that he was amazed the cable/sat companies don't offer a "Wife Wipe" feature on PPV lists for $5... :)

    Slordak, this is NOT the 921 Forum. It is the Dish DVR discussion forum. Sounds to me like it's open to all DVR discussions.

    Since texas_yankee is connected to a phone line, he should go to the "diagnostic"
    screen" and select the "dial out" option. If everything is working, he will see
    a message " updating smart card" or something to that effect, while it dumps the
    ppv list to E*.

    My apologies; wasn't paying attention to which of the forums in question I was posting to. Hence, yes, this is my mistake, and certainly wouldn't be the first time I've been corrected here :)

    I knew no one would believe me, but yes, it was a co-worker of mine. :)

    My 501 is plugged into a phone line, always has been, and I have a PPV from March of 2003 still sitting in there. I've checked the phone connection several times and it always passes. I guess Dish doesn't want to be reimbursed for the $3.99 they gave me to watch this movie.

    Yeah one would think they would dial out after the pruchase but I was told by E* that they only dial out every couple of months or if $25 or more is ordered. The reason I was given as to why it doesn't dial everytime is "it costs us money everytime it dials" I believe if you call E* they can clear that list.
