    From my last comments in week one: Queued up Tooth Fairy from 1096. Observerd it downloading via the internet. Went to watch it with the family last night. Movie started, but the purchase window was poped up over it. Wanted me to call DTV to order. It indicated I needed an internet connection to order via remote, but I do have internet connected. Stopped the movie, went to Network settings and tested my setup and network services. All were fine. Could not get the popup to go away. After the preview time, the movie just paused and would not let us watch it. Pressing play did nothing. Deleted the movie from the play list.

    Portland,...
    Still seeing this problem reported last week. It started after channel 1096 was down and returned.

    I have only received one movie, "Dear John" from my queue since the beginning of the trial. An attempt to download "Avatar" was "canceled because of a programming update. (13/0/)" at 10:01 am on 6/3. I had to re-enter "Avatar" into the queue.

    My queue is set up as follows:

    1. Avatar
    2. Edge of Darkness
    3. It's Complicated
    4. Boogie Man:The Lee Atwater Story
    5. The Stranger
    6. The Girl on the Train
    7. The Men Who Stare at Goats
    8. The Private Lives of Pippa Lee
    9. Rain Fall
    10. Crazy Heart
    11. Deadly Impact
    12. Pretty Bird
    13. Legion
    14. Alice in Wonderland
    15. The Lovely Bones

    Only one of these selections is a future release.

    Downloaded the latest CE, and now get a black screen for channel 1096. Re-ran search for IAMANEDGECUTTER but nothing. I'm afraid I'm not much help on this test if I can't even get the cinema selection channel to come up.

    HR21-100

    Checked this morning to see if anything new from my QUEUE had been pushed to my HDD. Noticed that "The Wolfman" was no longer green checked although it had not been played by anyone here. It is not listed in the PURCHASES log or in the HISTORY log. As I recall when it was green checked it was indicated that it was available for viewing until 8/11 or 11/08.

    So, I entered "The Wolfman" into my QUEUE and moved it to the top. I also added "The Young Victoria" to the bottom of the QUEUE.

    So far I have received only 1 movie in 8 days and counting.

    -When in the queue I tried pressing the red button to delete one of the items in the list. It did not appear to do anything. When I backed out to live TV and went back into the queue it then was deleted without ever asking me for confirmation.

    -Still no downloads on my HR22-100, added a bunch more last night so we will see what happens.

    No downloads here yet. Wolfman was ready to play on Monday but I didn't watch it. I updated CE Friday and then went to watch it a little bit after that and it was gone. That was the closest I have gotten so far.

    Started to delete some of the shows in my Que and when I selected "From Paris With Love" I received a warning that the movies was downloading.

    Probably still a work in progress, but the first sentence in the initial setup screen for the 1096 queue, and in Manage Recordings>Queue>Preferences (for the number of programs you'd like to see in your queue), there's a grammatical error.

    It says the singular, "appears", when referring to the plural, "programs". Should read "appear".

    Of your films only Avatar & The Road have been reported as downloads. Why don't you add Avatar to the H21 list as well.

    We watched Wolfman on the HR20-700 and had to really crank up the volume to get good sound. We don't have to do this when viewing other channels. This also happened w/ the The Road.

    HR21-100

    Checked my PLAYLIST around 10:00 am today and there were no new movies from my QUEUE listed. Checked my QUEUE and it showed only 16 entries not the 17 that were in it yesterday. The top entry "The Wolfman" was not shown in the QUEUE. Checked the HISTORY log and lo and behold the top entry indicated that "The Wolfman" had been recorded at 8:00 am. Then went back and checked the PLAYLIST again and, eureka, there was "The Wolfman" shown at the top.

    Normally I don't put the HR21-100 in STANDBY overnight but last night I did put it in STANDBY to see if there would be any download improvements and didn't bring it out until around 9:30 am today. I don't know if this might have triggered the download but I will try it again tonight and see what happens.

    Maybe everybody should try it and see if it makes any difference.

    I have 9 movies queued up across 3 dvr's and have not received any downloads. :(

    I put the units in standby when I am not using them or every night also.

    From Paris With Love recorded yesterday to my HR24-500 and was viewable from within the Queue but wasn't listed in the playlist.
