Good stuff!

I haven't looked at the beta in a while, does anyone recall if Starz on-demand was added?

That would really be nice. I was hoping that once it ended Beta status that HBO would pop up, I was wrong again:(

See post My Setup for configuration info.

How do I get to the On Demand feature? In the past I've gone to Menu>On Demand but now when I do I get a message that says '1000 (DTV) is currently not available.' I no longer get the On Demand screen with menus.

Starz DOD is on Channel 1520. How long have the DOD listings been on the Directv website? That is the feature I've been waiting on!

Can you see the channels between 1000 and 2000 in the program guide (all channels filter)? If not, try restarting your DVR.

Goldlexus, if all else fails, reset your network settings and then test them... if the test succeeds, On Demand should show up within 24 hours.

DoD showed up on the website on Friday.

My opinion is...we should see HBO and MAX at about the same time as the HD channels get lit up in September.
