Direct TV on Demand Download Problems
Posted 28 June 2011 - 02:42 PM
I have been having lots of “On Demand” download problems. What happen’s, when I select a program to download from the “On Demand” sight I get the record prompt. Everything seems to be downloading but after I go to the “List” and select the program I downloaded the program shows zero minutes recorded or maybe one or two minutes. I have spoken to Direct TV Tech Support and they have had me refresh, reset and do other things but I am still having the same problems.
I am using Netgear XE104 Wall-plugged Ethernet Switch via my router. When I connect my laptop the wall mounted Ethernet adaptor I can access the internet as though I was directly connected to my router, and have no problems using my laptop and the internet. I have (at Direct TV’s Request) reset the Ethernet adaptors and have re-downloaded updates from Netgear drivers, and I am still having problems.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I should try?

have you manually set the ports on the HR? and then allowed port forwarding via the netgear or your dsl/cable box? If your router/modem has a dmz then set that for the ip of the HR.
Bad idea using a DMZ with anything connected to a router, it is there for saftey and NOT getting hacked into, the other suggestion is good with setting up a static IP for all of your HR's connected to the network
All leased equipment returned
On 7/8/2011 Directv charges me for 2 receivers one DVR at ($175.00) and a Standard STB for ($45.00), good grief!!
Note: Directv did reverse the equipment charges

A good suggestion. I remember that happening to me a long time ago until I assigned an IP address to each receiver. I actually do that now for my entire network...
the other suggestion is good with setting up a static IP for all of your HR's connected to the network
