Yesterday I noticed on CMT Network available On Demand a Crossroads episode with Emmilou Harris and Mumford & Sons. Fan of both so I selected it to watch now and it appeared to download. Tried to watch it and it was 43 minutes of black screen. Deleted it and downloaded to watch later. Same result. The program is listed but apparently not there. First time I've seen that.

My broadband connection is ethernet and it worked fine a couple hours earlier to download a movie.

I'm leaving for the holidays. Maybe I'll try that program again when I get back. If anyone from Dish read this please check it out. Thanks.

Not sure what causes it, I have gone through the exact thing with other recordings. No matter how many times I tried to download and view, it wouldn't work. I tried downloading the same program using the same procedure on a different receiver (everything else the same) and it plays correctly with no problems.

Thanks, Gary. Nice to know I'm not the only one. Unfortunately I only have broadband on our main TV. Maybe I'll ask Tech Support about this issue when I have some time.

Dish has Wifi adaptors for the receivers, they cost $25. It makes it easy to have more receivers connected to broadband.
