Okay, here is my issue. Every time I try to download a VOD program my DVR gets part of the way though and then disconnects from the internet, the download stops, my ipad app can no longer find any of the DVRs and only a total reset of the DVR will get it to work again, it will stay connected fine until the next time I try to watch a VOD, I have never successfully watched a full VOD program with my current set-up. I have called Directv and their only answer is a service call (at my expense) to make sure it is hooked up correctly. And as I can start a download and my Ipad app works fine and I have checked and rechecked all the connections I do not see how that would help me.
I had 3 HDDVRs (a 24 and 2 23s) and whole home DVR and it was hardwired to the internet by the installer at this time the VOD worked flawlessly, I moved to a new home that had the internet modem in a different room than any of the DVRs so the installer could not hook up the internet for me (I found after he left that he took the connector that was used with him when he left so even though I eventually moved the modem to a room with a DVR I no longer had the hardware I needed to hook it up the way it was in the old house, Directv sold me a wireless kit so I could hook back up (was cheaper) but I have a very fast internet and stream movies all the time on my apple tv and such all running off the wifi so I figured it should be fine.
