    I have no phone service. I order a movie on line on my computer and before all my receivers used to show the movie. But now the receiver not connected show blue screen urging to connect and I can't get rid of it. How can I clear this? I can switch the box to a room that has internet to get updated.
    How long the update takes?
    How long after update the unconnected to internet receiver work without that blue screen for ppv?

    I suspect that if you don't have a phone line or internet to the box, the box needs to upload the PPV items you watched. I don't think the upload will take more than a few minutes. But that's a guess.

    Which type of movie did you order? Some movies need (not PPV) to be downloaded via Internet connection
