    Anyone else get this?, it must be a glitch like Monsters and Aliens.

    One time can be a mistake, twice is getting to be a problem.

    Had it this morning as well. But, upon closer inspection it was listed as a 2 minute recording.

    Yeah, I had it. It was just a 2 minute preview of the movie. I watched it and then deleted it.

    No harm.

    The trailer showed up on the list of recorded programs on my HR21. However, when played there is no sound. Is this Directv's new way to promote "Cinema"? :confused:

    Dear DTV,

    Strike Two

    Putting this in my queue just produces questions from the wife and frustration from me.

    Stop spamming me! I already pay $96 a month. I am a big boy and if I want to order the freaking movie then I will. :mad:

    Really?? I dont remember scheduling that to record. If its not SPAM then what exactly do you call a recording that is unsolicited (For the second time)?

    You won't be charged for it, even if you watch it, since it seems to be only two minutes. You're only charged for PPV if you watch more than five minutes.

    It not only had no sound but also the video looked like poor VHS quality. What a way to advertise a 1080p presentation! :rolleyes:

    it's sneaky, evil, marketing at it's worst. D spends enough air time on cross channel promotions, they don't need to clutter my recording list too.

    They are obviously testing ways to put stuff on your "recorded programs" that you did not put there. Not a good idea

    Take a chill pill. It is only a previewo f a ppv. It is a form of advertising. Directv needs to get revenues so they add the preview to a dvr that they own.

    Cable and Dish do the same thing.
