If OP is a teenager and his/her parents check the purchase history that makes some sense but for the rest of us who actually checks their purchase history?


Or the babysitter.:D

Dont know if the new units do this but On older units all you had to do was hookup the phone line for a few days and the unit would upload and mark all ppv events after the unit confirmed DirecTV received the info. Then they would fall from the receiver in title but would remain as a long number. The number means the full ppv title to DirecTv but on the unit you had no idea what it was.

This is a debatable issue for a whole lot of reasons, including basic trust between spouses. But, since the title does not appear on the bill, I would question why it would remain on the receiver. I wonder why this has never been addressed. It's one thing for PPV Ch. 490something to appear. It is another for "Wild Wives Satisfied By the Satellite Man and Babysitter at the Same Time" to appear. (Tried to keep that title clean there.;))

More seriously, here in Cleveland we have a registered sex offender/rapist who has murdered at least 10 people and buried them in and around his house (in case you haven't heard.) It is well documented that some porn helps to trigger the desire for violent or abusive sex in many sex addicts. I'm sure a spouse or parent with concern about a loved one might really need to know about this.

It is even better documented that some porn can help to sublimate the desire for violent or abusive sex -- thus preventing acting out.

Yes you can delete all history with the resetting of the box. It does in fact erase everything! If this helps you to keep your privacy then this is the direction you should take. Doglitz :D

If I understand it correctly IF you order online it doesn't show in the order history on the DVR.

I think that's true if you watch the event immediately, but if you record it for watching later then it will show up.

This would be the "reset EVERYTHING" that also wipes out the recordings, and all the setup settings, and take the receiver back to factory [default] settings, though it doesn't wipe the access card for any PPV charges not yet "called in".
