    Now if they can get the 3D movies added that some cable systems have for HBO it would be icing on the cake.

    Impressed with the video quality, HBOGO on my Xbox can have issues with artifacting.

    Scrolling through the choices can be slow as can loading episodes to the point of being able to watch them without the program being stopped while it continues loading. This is not enough of an issue for me to want to sacrifice video quality.

    Would be nice to have a choice in the menu as to how to list episodes on TV Series, currently it's listed oldest episodes 1st, this can be an issue with series that have run for some time and you want to catch the latest episodes, you have to scroll through a bunch of episodes to get to Season 5 on True Blood for example.

    Overall, quite happy here.

    Probably some murky rights issue there. It was a joint venture, not solely HBO.

    Just as fast as they would if you had ~12Mb/s internet speed. The bottleneck is on the other end.

    That said, you can almost always download in faster-than-real-time (depending on the channel).

    Deadwood. 3 thumbs up an 5 stars. Hit me up when you have finished watching the entire series. I am interested in your thoughts.

    My HBO Series folder only expands down to Luck. Any ideas?

    Mine does not. My list goes all the way down to Veep. Not sure what the issue might be for you.

    This is awesome, now if they would get the pause/skipping issues fixed on the HR-34 which makes VOD content unwatchable.

    This is GREAT news!

    Just one little suggestion. If the receiver detects your ISP is fast enough, allow it to stream. That way in one click the video will play (vs click to record, exit to list, wait for it a little bit than hit play). HBOGo and MaxGo play straight off the Internet. We kind of miss that simplicity we had with Cable VOD.

    Not all rooms have hard drives to download too either. The H24 for example has no hard drive to download to. Using on demand in other rooms like the bedroom would be awesome!

    That aside, this is great that all the extra content is now available!

    After this addition to On Demand, I now have one of my receivers prompting me to choose between "highest quality" and "watch immediately" when I download something from HBO OD. My other HD DVR doesn't give me this prompt. Is this new? I've never seen it before and couldn't find anything on it with a search. Are these options just marketing code for different resolutions?

    Hmm... Now only if I could get this watch immediately on my non DVRs. H24 is a pretty fast box.
