    I am posting this here to get more exposure as this is posted without out a answer in the TiVo section way back in June/July...

    So I have a NEW TiVo unit and it's HARD WIRED to my Internet router...the first couple of days I had no trouble downloading old TV shows like Men of a Certain Age on channel 1245 (TNT)...then our of the blue it stopped downloading them...it puts them in queue and then starting it's "Preparing" cycle...after 1-2 minutes it then shows no shows in "Queue" to download...then if you go to "To Do" list and enter history it shows that show "WAS NOT FOUND" and so nothing ever gets downloaded from the DirecTV on Demand....after SEVERAL times on the phone with the techs at D* they now insist I need a "Wireless Cinema Connection Kit"...I REALLY don't think this is going to help but it's being sent to me...

    They could not answer how I downloaded the show when I first got this unit...AND BTW....I CAN STILL DOWNLOAD their FREE Extended Previews of Paid per View shows....

    Can anyone here help explain this and do you think this "KIT" they are sending will solve my problem.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME...

    Bob

    I don't install many THR-22's. Unless something has changed then a THR-22 can't "setup" a WCCK. You would need an HDDVR for that, or a computer. Folks on this website could help you with the computer setup part. DirecTv would be clueless. I sort of doubt it will help.

    sam, so what you're saying is this Wireless Cinema Kit will be USELESS as I suspected...I'm thinking...why would a WIRELESS connection work and not my hardwire setup as it is now....

    WHY did VOD work on this TiVo unit when I first got it but not now...

    Kind of sounds like I'm never going to get to the bottom of this...HOPEFULLY someone will chime in that has a TiVo downloading DirecTV on Demand.

    Posting the make/model of your router/modem/ISP would likely attract the attention of a geek.
