    After last week's CE made me RBR my HR22 (which then triggered some kind of "automatic reset to system defaults and wipe the drive" :p), I had to go back and add items to my Queue for that box. I added Shutter Island the other day after enough time had passed to load up all the Guide data. It appeared in my List last night, but that's the only thing that has.

    One thing that I would like is a for an expected release date to be listed next to the mvie in the queue. This way the customers would have a better idea of when to expect the movie to be available for watching.

    I swapped out all of my DVRs for HR24s and I thought that I had Youth in Revolt as a movie that was available for watching. Has anyone been able to watch Youth in Revolt? However, all I have right now that is available for watching is Book of Eli and When in Rome.

    A release date next to the movie would be a great improvement in my opinion.

    Wife put "When in Rome" in the Q last night.

    It showed up in the playlist today and watching it now.

    I received my seventh movie today between my 3 receivers.
    Four were added to my HR24-500 playlist and three were in my HR21-700. The HR21-200 had a few of the movies from each duplicated. Some titles in my queue have not been received by any of the DVRs.

    We have watched a couple movies the last few days, and have a couple more that showed up in the Q.

    I really like the Q setup. I won't be using Netflix any longer when this hits publicly.

    You just made me realize that I have The Wolfman showing up in my List in the Living room, but it doesn't show up in my List (MRV) in the Master Bedroom while other movies do show up. :confused:

    Did you buy it? You need to buy it for it to show in MRV

    EDIT: Oh you mean 2 different authorized DVRs?

    Doh!

    You're right. They don't show up in other playlists until you buy it.


    Thanks, that was starting to drive me crazy. :lol:

    Yeah basically the wife needs to have me Buy upstairs on the HR24 before she can then enjoy it on the H24 downstairs.

    Is there going to be a movie of the week or something that is pushed to everyone's queue? So far Book of Eli and She's out of My League are instantly available. I also noticed Cheech and Chong's movie was removed from my queue. Is it that bad it was remove automatically or is there some sort of glitch?

    I cancelled my Netflix and went back to the premium channels, but I would prefer this system to Netflix, also, if it were at a lower price.

    We do two or three PPVs per month and I can't see us increasing that very much unless the price comes down.

    I noticed last night that some movies were ready to play that were not in my Q on 1096. I will check them out today and report back :)

    I canceled Netflix as well too, I like this system better and I haven't been streaming enough stuff from Netflix to justify it.


    Wife watched "She's out of my league" last night and she said that it played perfectly, she likes this system over Netflix as well.

    I wonder why some people don't get anything and I have been getting lots of downloads.
