Internet Connectivity & PPV Ordering
Posted 23 September 2011 - 09:42 AM
A little about our setup: 3 receivers (HR24/100 in the living room, HR22/100 in the basement rec room, HR20/100 in the master bedroom), recently had Whole Home installed, self installed the WCCK on the HR24/100 (inline with the satellite-in cable). No phone line connected anywhere, if that makes a difference. I am able to do VOD, youtube, DTV apps, etc on all three boxes. However, at least on the HR22/100, when I try to order a PPV movie, it tells me I am not connected and need to either go online or call. I have not attempted to order PPV on any other box.
Not sure if this matters, but my whole home dvr works just fine. We have Comcast as our internet provider. Modem, Linksys WiFi router.
Shouldn't I be able to do PPV with no problems once connected to the internet? I am going to test PPV on the other boxes once I get home tonight.

I'm on the current national release software (the one with Pandora). I have been able to order PPV my remote in the past, though I've not tried it in a long time - meaning many software releases ago. Do I need to call to have IPPV re-enabled on my account? And what is IPPV?
