    Just got my DOD enabled today. Went thru the list and wanted to queue up The Da Vinci Code. But when I selected "Add to Queue" I get the message "Visit directv.com or call 1-800-directv to subscribe today" and all I can do is select continue.

    Am I doing something wrong? I was able to add something else to the queue and this doesn't show anything about a cost.

    Thoughts?

    BTW Thanks Tom for getting me up on DOD. :D

    Most likely it is because you don't subscribe to Starz

    Sounds like you don't have Starz in your program package.
    That is needed to use Starz on demand.

    Yes. I do not have Starz. I know understand WHY it didn't work. But no where in the info on this Title did it say that it was ON Starz.

    I listed all from the channel 1000 menu and scroled down to see what was there. Probably need a better message or a channel listing on the description.

    IMO.

    Thanks for the quick feedback. Now back to the list to see what I can watch :)

    Said before, there needs to be some sort of CIR logic in VOD.

    Channel 1000 is "all of them", while the other VOD channels are broken down by the supplier [TBS, TNT, etc.]

    I understand it is all of them, but some indication of what channel it is or a better message as to why I was unable t oselect it would have been nice.

    I would [agree] like to see more info about what I'm downloading too. Right now it's kind of a blind crap shoot until I get to watch it.

    Lancaster,...
    I agree 100%. I go through the list and see several movies I want to see, choose them, and then see they are on channels I don't get, like Starz or Encore. We need to be able to filter out channels we don't receive (or only include those we do receive) in On Demand.

    Same problem here. I tried to download it this morning a few times and it would go into my queue for about two seconds and then it would remove itself.

    BTW I do have the Premier Package.

    I am also unable to queue The Da Vinci Code. Have Premier (which inlcudes Starz).

    speaking of having to subscribe to Starz... is that the reason it won't allow me to 'view the trailers' on the Encore & Starz VOD channels? I click 'view trailer' and it comes up w/ the display box, but then just reverts back to description!

    oh, if this has been talked about before, my bad!

    Update

    Since it seems like a few people wanted to download "The Da Vinci Code" I wanted to let everyone know I just tried it again and it is now working.

    Maybe they should design CIR first. :mad:

    You would think they'd get the basic stuff right first, wouldn't you?
