    The Wolfman in my queue on 1096 gave me the option to buy / watch and I was able to watch it after I hit this. The movie is now in my list with a green Q icon in front but I do not remember it being there before I watched it.

    Yeah I think based on posts up until today, and then what I saw in my video today, that "state" might have been new. Maybe they're testing and tweaking as we move along.

    I've gone down that rabbit hole before. I'm not holding my breath.

    Crazy Heart is now in my Q with a green check mark and available to watch. I assume once one chooses Buy/Watch, it moves into the List and also becomes available for viewing over MRV.

    Portland,...
    You're probably right. DVDKindom noted that over in the issues thread. I haven't tested that yet, I just noticed that it wasn't in my playlist on my other DVR after being downloaded.

    I think that the PPV's over MRV should be seamless. I think that we should be able to order via MRV as well as watch on any connected receiver.

    I'm not sure why we wouldn't want it that way...

    As of last night the only item in my Queue that was available was Crazy Heart, despite several of the others having been available at various times throughout the day with a tuner free to record them. I'm not entirely sure how the recording priorities are used here, since Crazy Heart was not at the top of my priority list. I'll have to check things out more tonight when I get home.

    Crazy Heart, which was previously in my queue with a check mark, is now appearing in my Playlist without me clicking Play or Buy/Watch. I think inkahauts described this.

    It really should be that simple because you're not limited to certain titles.
    1. Enter 1096
    2. Select a category your interested in from the menu.
    3. Select any of the movies now displayed that may be something you'ld like to see.
    4. Select "Add to Queue.

    Or....

    1. Enter 1096 (latter when the trial is over this will be channel 1100, DirecTV Cinema)
    2. Select a category your interested in from the menu.
    3. When you see the title of the movie you want, highlight it and press record on the remote.

    I noticed two movies were missing from my queue but couldn't find them in my list. I went to history and saw Wolfman and Dear John were downloaded at 2 pm today. I went back to list and they were not there still. It wasn't until I went to my playlist through the menu screen did these show up. Both show they were recorded off of channel 125 even though I went through 1096.

    I am going to assume channel 125 is ok to watch based on it not being within the list of channels that will not be credited.

    I had Crazy Heart in my Queue it was listed in my Playlist this morning with the green Q icon moentioned previously. This title was once again listed as coming from one of the Cinema HD channels (125). I did confirm purchase for this one and after confirming the movie was watchable through any receiver. The picture quality was good and sound was at a low volume.

    Out of curiosity have you selected The Road or Dear John. Most seem to have had those downloaded if selected. Along w/ Tooth Fairy...but I think you and your family are a bit beyond that one :lol: .
