HR-44 will not allow me to record the free Cinemax.  I did expect this day to happen.

Someone on DirecTV's Facebook page posted if you do not watch the things you recorded to your DVR during the free weekend in a certain amount of time you would lose access to them unless you subscribed to HBO. Is that correct? I have never heard that before but someone else agreed with them.

Wrong. I'm actually watching something right now from the weekend and don't sub to HBO.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Are you sure they weren't talking about HBO-VOD stuff downloaded during the freeview?

This past weekend, I watched a couple movies that I'd recorded from Starz/Encore channels during a free preview back in April. I've previously watched movies recorded over a year earlier (from all the pay channels). I'm going to say that Facebook poster is wrong.

Thanks, that is what i thought. Just wanted to make sure nothing has changed. I recorded Ted and some other things this weekend and am hoping to watch... eventually. :)
