I have a HR-24 connected to a Whole Home system. The HD-DVR shows that I am connected to the Internet. I can download a movie but when I go to watch it, it tells me I have to text DirecTV to order or call in because I am not connected to the Internet. I am connected though. Any ideas?

I'd try to start it anyway when you're ready to watch, and if no soap, call in.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Most likely your account is setup to not allow impulse purchases, or whatever they call it, or it has a really low limit on the amount on money can be charged to PPV on your account over a certain period of time. That means you can't pay for PPV without calling in and talking to someone. If you call DirecTV and explain the situation they should be able to get it fixed.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
