    Well it is unfortunate that DTV is suspending the trial although i cant blame them considering i only ever got two movies pushed to my receiver. However it does seem that they are working on something behind the scenes to make it better. It's a good idea in concept, but it still needs more work to make it reality.

    Dialup only is fine here. Whatever you need, even if it is nothing at all :D Just glad to be a part :)

    It does make sense. With some extra bandwidth on HD PPV, scheduling shouldn't be a problem without a HSI connection.

    I was also one who got the movies in a timely manner, as described by Larry. I think a number of other users did as well, while others got few to none. So the setups explanation from Doug may have some correlation here.

    Overall, the way I would use this actually worked just fine for me, even in the limited CE. Big family, lots of kids, lots of recorded shows, so I never get crazy about having to see a movie "right away". I never even go to theaters anymore. So actually this rudimentary test was just fine for my liking. I'm also keeping Netflix suspended til the end of August even with the trial suspension.

    Well I got to test a few, and they worked well.

    But like others, I had only 2 movies come down out of probably 10-15 queued over the whole course of the trial.

    Nice. I didn't get to watch a single move. Hopefully my reports were helpful.

    Bummer.. I was on vacation for part of the trial, and my sling box was knocked offline, so I didn't get to watch many movies... One to be exact.

    I would say it needs some work though, because I had queue up over 60 movies in one of them before I left, and I came home to only 5 recorded....

    After the cut off date for rebates I actually received 2 of my queue entries in a single day. That's the only time that occurred during the trial..

    Just got a credit on my DirecTV account.

    Thanks to all involved, and I do hope this FT comes back.
