    How long does it take to get a Serial Number from Cyberlink?

    Were they expecting my DirecTv account or something other than just my name and email address?

    I got mine within 5 minutes after the d/l completed. The d/l was quite slow however.

    Do you have a firewall, and if so, will it specifically allow DIRECTV2PV(TM).exe access to your network?

    The install is asking for a name, company, and serial number. I've got the serial number from the side of my computer but what else does it need? My name, the computer name?, and I don't work for any company!

    But the point is you may want or need spare bandwidth for other things like a simultaneous VOD download or two, surfing, file downloads, etc. And what if your neighbors get home and fire up their g networks and interfere with your throughput? You can't have too much bandwidth!

    You can put anything for the company name but they will email you with the serial number.

    Hmm... I still haven't gotten it. I had tried it using Firefox, so I just tried it again with IE7. Hopefully it'll come through.

    I have the same display and the Dell site says it does but then the devil in the details seems to state otherwise. My Nvidia video card says it's supported but it fails. Probably spring for a Sapphire 3650HD PCI-E for $60.00 on Amazon. I have the AGP version on my P4 XP box that passes the tests just fine. I guess $60 won't kill me to find out.

    I believe for serial number it wants the license code they're supposed to email to you. If it insists that you type in a company name, you can type in anything - silly as that may be.

    Chicago -...
    When I used my generic email address, I didn't get the email. I tried again, using the address I signed up to DirecTV.com with and got a serial number.

    The first program I tried to view was not rated and I had to enter the unlock code but I never created a lock code to begin with. So I had to lock my HR20-700 and unlock it and then used the same code on the PC and the show played. I never would have thought a cooking show would be locked :lol: :lol:

    Hmm, that could be it. I just logged in to my account and I did register with a different email address.
