    I have VOD :icon_kiff

    Got home from work, VOD not in my guide.

    FYI - For “Engineering Only – Charge” posted to my account on 8/29
    FYI - Confirmed VOD set to “enable”

    Restarting my receiver via menu did not help.

    I then refreshed my services via directv.com ..........BINGO!

    VOD now compiling in my guide.

    I rebooted last night after nothing showed up on the box, and it began populating. VOD is now alive and well in my home :D

    Downloaded about 6 shows last night, watched two this evening when I got home from work...worked great!

    Thanks again to Earl et al and D* for the opportunity to try it out!

    Nevermind... I found it... Troubleshooting then Refresh Your Services... I'll post if this helps me!

    OK, after seeing the engineering charge on my account I came home and sure enough there is a whole slew of DOD options on channel 1000 (and above). The bad news is that nothing is downloading because the DVR isn't connecting to the internet.

    It's hardwired with an ethernet cable directly to the FIOS router. Sees the IP address, DNS server, and :confused: network but does not connect. Any thoughts?

    YES! I can confirm that refreshing your service via directv.com worked for me too.

    Same thing for me. However I just noticed E! on demand (1236) & style on demand (1235) now appearing in my guide.

    I tried refreshing my services, but that didn't really do anything because I don't have the engineering charge showing on my bill yet. (I had hoped maybe refreshing services would have the charge show up.)

    Downloaded All the Kings Men in Hd on Sunday or Monday. Went to watch it last night prior to 8/30 expiration. It was unwatchable at times. Picture break up and audio dropouts galore. Occasionally it ran smoothly. Had to stop watching.
    All other downloads were fine.
    Is E still not up and running?
    Style is now working and TCM allows downloads

    The engineering charge just showed up yesterday for me. Maybe you'll get it today in time to play for the weekend. :)

    After two days I strongly doubt the engeneering charge will show up for me. I'm much more confident that I joined the CE process too late to be included in the "gift" of the VOD CE. It would have been nice but it's not like it's the end of the world. :(

    That's too defeatist of you. I prefer your posts of:

    Damn! not there yet. Refresh
    Damn! not there yet. Refresh

    At least those make me laugh! :lol:

    When did you start doing the CEs? Judging by your post count you started way before me. Never give up hope. :grin:
