    Thanks for the information, Lord Vader! I'm very patient - just curious of the timeframe.

    I have hooked up three HR20's, to VOD,and it took a only a few minutes to show up in the menu and a couple of hours for the channels to be listed and it was overnight before the content was fairly well populated.

    Thanks, Davring! The set up and networking went super smooth so, hopefully, this next piece will be just as easy :)

    This basic question may have been answered before, and if so, my apologies.

    Why in the heck would I want DoD??? I have most of the channels, they are in HD, and I can record and watch when I want. Am I missing something?

    Sailmon,

    DoD has a couple of places in the viewing experience: 1) you missed an episode of a favorite show because of (insert any problem here); 2) you don't want to venture out into the nasty weather of your climatic region to get that movie from Blockbuster (and can't wait for the next netflix delivery); 3) you find an item in the library of DoD that will eventually show up again on your favorite cable channel, but who knows when :); 4) your 2 year old wants to watch *it* NOW! :D

    I'm sure there are other uses for DoD, and it might not be for everyone until the library of available content gets that item that works for you and your family.

    Happy Holidays!
    Tom

    I think so far the service is pretty good. Granted I'd like more shows, or at least full seasons instead of hit or miss episodes. But over all I am happy with it, and look forward to a full roll out.

    I am with Tom, we have 4 grandchildren and we don't make a habit of recording Hanna Montana or the other Disney Stuff so the DOD comes in real handy for their last minute sleep overs!

    What the heck is this requiring you to have a fast connection to the net to use On Demand? That should be via the sat, not yer own internet. Will this mean no HD OnDemand?

    I love Comcasts On Demand, so hopefully DTV will have it as good as Comcast.

    Since there already is HD DOD, I'd say it doesn't mean that at all.

    I am having problems with DoD downloading shows. I have queued multiple shows but all of the shows show "Paused" in them. If I "unpause" the download, I get a 0% "downloading" bar and then it goes back to Paused. From my firewall I see that the device is trying to use port 80, which should be fine, but for some reason I can't download anything. Is there some other port that needs to be opened? Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks for your help,

    Marty
