    On my HR23-700 i simply tabbed over to the "how many videos" in the preferences screen, highlighted it and selected 10 from the drop down.

    I can't duplicate your 3rd item.. all screens were fully readable.

    Yes, I don't think they turned on the categories yet.

    "The Road" was designed to test your endurance and patience with test watching a movie....:nono2:

    I have the road and dear john dropped into my playlist, and where recorded off of one of the cinema channels.. The problem is, they are also on the reserved space on my hard drive and where pushed ages ago to my machine.. SO its basically on my dvr twice, once in directvs space, once in mine.. Thats a waste of my space if you ask me.. I think all these should be dropped into the reserved space, and that they should not worry about limits, and just let everyone fill up their reserved space with these movies.. And if someone doesn't use this feature, then just keep the most popular titles pushed to it...

    I loaded all three of the movies that came up on the screen into my Queue and now the "Tooth Fairy" shows up as being downloaded into My Playlist and the other two are in the Queue.

    The only movies I have heard people actually have downloaded to their boxes are The Tooth-fairy, Avatar and I believe The Road. These other movies that everybody adds seems to just sit in queue.

    Give it a 24 hours. That should do the trick.

    Its a keyword search.

    Go to smart search, spell it out and select it as a keyword search, then all, then done. It will not find anything.

    Then wait.

    The IAMANEDGECUTTER keyword search does need to be run to enable access to 1096.

    I believe that is what did it for me as it was not enabled at the time. I enabled it and then a few hours later I had access to channel 1096. How do you believe access to 1096 is enabled?

    I added different selections to my Q between my DVR's. There is nothing duplicated between them. I expected to be able to watch movies via MRV on either box.

    This morning, however, I see that I although I have 'Dear John' in the HR22's playlist, I doesn't show up in the HR21's list. I think that this should be part of the basic function of MRV and hopefully, this will be addressed in future releases.

    I too would also like to see these movies via MRV.

    Watched "Dear John" last night and the video and sound was superb. My only problem I am having is that it appears only one of my 3 HR20-700's is downloading movies, even though all three have movies in their que.

    I get the same thing I got for 1096 with the previous CE. I don't see the movies that we are supposed to be able to download:

    * Boogie Man
    * The Stranger
    * The Wolfman (Unrated)
    Instead I see:

    Avatar
    Edge of Darkness
    Tooth Fairy

    I cannot position the highlight bar to any selection that displays the movies that we are supposed to be able to download.

    Are the movies that I do see considered a part of the reimbursable set that we should try to download?

    The movies will appear on the unified playlist after authorizing the purchase on the server. I believe it is done this way to prevent an unauthorized charge since previous issue reports while MRV was testing stated the viewer was able to view the program through a client without confirming purchase.

    Ok was able to eventually find the 1096 movies by selecting ALL and then manually searching through the listings until I found the movies we are supposed to be testing with. I managed to get "Boogie Man" and "The Stranger" loaded into the QUEUE but "The Wolfman" had already been pushed to my HDD and was green check marked and I was unable to see it associated with 1096 in the ALL list.

    The QUEUE entries have now been sitting there in the QUEUE for several hours and there doesn't seem to be anything going on. No indication as to if or when they will be downloaded and appear in my PLAYLIST.

    So far it has been cumbersome to get the movies into the QUEUE and it is far from intuitive as to how to do so.
