    Trying to watch Alice in Wonderland. I get a big blue pop-up covering lower right quadrant of screen saying "To order this program now, go to DirecTV.com or call 1-800....."

    Is this normal?

    I would report that. Mine didn't do that for that movie.

    I deleted my downloaded Cintest movies from my playlist yesterday and started over. This morning Alice in Wonderland appeared in my playlist. As with every other cintest I've tried to watch, the big blue pop-up appeared telling me to call DirecTV or go to directv.com to order. Despite the fact that my HR20-700 is connected to the internet.

    So basically since this cintest started I have not been able to watch a cintest movie. No big deal for me except for my family seeing these in the playlist and wanting to watch these movies only to be disappointed.

    I got that same "needs to be connected to internet" message (it is connected to internet) so I called customer service about the message (without mentioning Cinetest) and apparently my living room box wasn't "set up" for PPV set top box ordering. I was also told to hook up a phone line. It worked after my call.

    Finally got around to watching Avatar. No glitches or anything. Pretty good overall

    Perhaps I will call tomorrow. I don't have a land line that I can hook up.

    I can't seem to find the week 6 discussion...

    Nothing new here, nothing in the Q has downloaded and I still have Hot Tub Time Machine with a green check mark that I won't be watching and that's about it around here.

    It could be because I am on last weeks CE, sorry about that, time got away from me, I will catch up this Friday.
