    Directv on demand will not record on either of my DVRs. I have a HR54/500 running 0xd1e and a HR/22/100 running 0xb08. They will both start to record but after anywhere from 4 minuted to 20 minutes I get a message on screen saying "There was a problem connecting to Directv. Please try again later". I have tried both DVRs wireless and wired but still get the same problem.

    I don't have a problem streaming with my firestick or other streaming sevices.

    What is your download speed?

    20 Mbps, all of my other streaming works fine. I have wired connection to both of my DVRs.

    Start by resetting your DVRs along with modern and router.

    Hr44/500 with 0xcb8 from May 10.
    100 mbps down.

    Same problem.
    Even after a reset.

    If you ever figure it out, please let me know how you fixed it.

    I have same problem on my HR24. Mostly on the Adult Swim channel. No problem on other channels.

    This seems to have done the trick:

    Menu
    Settings and Help
    Settings
    Internet Setup
    Advanced Setup
    Reset Network
    Dash

    Seems to have changed the last digit in my IP address.

    Recording a Showtime show from 1545 at usual download speed.

    I'll try a second one after this one finishes.

    Edit: No more problems. "Reset Network" fixed it.

    I did a factory reset on my router and it seems to have solved the problem.
