    Anyone else having an issue with HBO on Demand being not available? It does not show up when I go though the Menu-On Demand-Browse by Channel and when I tune to 1501 I'm told it is not available. This is occurring on multiple DVRs in the house.

    Yeah. Same here but I could record something from the iPad app and it showed up. Still no GUI on TV, though.

    Down here for me as well. I sure hope they get it back up soon. I download and watch a lot from HBO On Demand.

    Same here says "1501 (HBO) is currently not available". All other On Demand "channels" seem to be working fine.

    It was working last night. I downloaded the John Adams series last night for my Mother-in-law (actually I am watching it again also...very good). So maybe this is only a short term issue.

    Is anyone else still having this problem? I can get all of the On Demand stuff except for 1501.

    Okay, this is interesting. I have an HR44 connected directly to the internet via a network cable. When I tune to channel 1501 I get this message: 1501 (HBO) is currently unavailable.

    When I press menu, and select Search & Browse, then select On Demand. I can search for the show that I was looking for and it downloads without issue.

    Just curious if anyone has any advice. I am still getting this message: 1501 (HBO) is currently unavailable. It has been like this for almost a month. I have restarted the receiver many times and nothing resolves it.

    Just checked and downloaded a movie. Other than the menus being slooooowwwwww, it worked okay for me. (1501 Collision Course - gotta love a corny Jay Leno & Pat Morita!)
