    I finally got my Dishnetwork installed last week and of course was playing around with my 501. From the other post here about it having Search functions now I guess I got the latest Software.
    I do NOT have the 501 hooked up to a phone line as of now.
    Anyways, when I clicked on a PPV channel asking me if I wanna purchase it I clicked yes figuring it would not let me not having it connected to the phone line. Though it did. I was free to watch the whole movie and now I am wondering, how do they charge me. It is in my list of Subscribed movies. I do not want to test around purchasing movies to test now but is this a bug or does it wait for me to hook it up to the phone somewhen???

    Thanks

    It remains on your smartcard untill your unit calls in. If it dont call in you dont get charged.

    However sooner or later you will eaither exceed the order limit or the unit will notice it hasn't called in awhile and will prevent you from ordering with your remote.

    They will charge you when the phone is connected, however you will either reach the order limit or have the unit notice it hasn't been able to call in and not allow you to order more PPVs. (BTW, I'm Mark - posting from another computer. This is my 7th post here today)
