Anyone else having an issue with HBO on Demand being not available? It does not show up when I go though the Menu-On Demand-Browse by Channel and when I tune to 1501 I'm told it is not available. This is occurring on multiple DVRs in the house.

Yup, same. Perhaps is down for "maintenance"

Same here says "1501 (HBO) is currently not available". All other On Demand "channels" seem to be working fine.

It was working last night. I downloaded the John Adams series last night for my Mother-in-law (actually I am watching it again also...very good). So maybe this is only a short term issue.

Is anyone else still having this problem? I can get all of the On Demand stuff except for 1501.

Okay, this is interesting. I have an HR44 connected directly to the internet via a network cable. When I tune to channel 1501 I get this message: 1501 (HBO) is currently unavailable.
When I press menu, and select Search & Browse, then select On Demand. I can search for the show that I was looking for and it downloads without issue.

Just curious if anyone has any advice. I am still getting this message: 1501 (HBO) is currently unavailable. It has been like this for almost a month. I have restarted the receiver many times and nothing resolves it.

Just checked and downloaded a movie. Other than the menus being slooooowwwwww, it worked okay for me. (1501 Collision Course - gotta love a corny Jay Leno & Pat Morita!)
