    i just got my bill and the insert says:

    "Enjoy 10 channels from HBO and don't miss addictive series like Ballers and Vice Principles and entertaining movies like Straight Outtta Compton.

    And with eight Cinemax channels you can watch thrilling series like Outcast and Unforgettable and unforgettable movies like The Visit and Crimson Peak."

    Yes you use to be able to set a future recording even if not subscribed. Now you can't. Maybe DTV expects you to get up a midnight and record the movies you want. I wonder if DTV ever thinks anything out before changing what use to work just fine.

    As I recall freeviews start at 5 AM ET on the first day and end at 5 AM ET after the final day (in this case 5 AM 7/15 - 5 AM 7/19). Is that still the case?

    Thanks.

    i think this is what i'm going to have to do. Batman: Under the Red Hood is playing at 3:15 AM Pacific and is not being repeated. so the only way to get it is to wake up and press record

    Can you just take note of the channel, time, and duration, then schedule a manual recording?

    I tried it and it seemed to work. I just set a up a couple minute manual recording and it recorded and stopped, and did have the name of the program that was recorded. But when trying to play it, it obviously didn't work since I wasn't subscribed. It just immediately went to the do you want to keep or delete screen as if it didn't have any underlying recording. I would think that it would work once the freeview becomes active.

    Recordings
    Manage Recordings
    Manual Record

    FYI, setting manual recordings for a time during the freeview before the freeview starts does work. I was able to create two manual recording yesterday evening for things during the freeview and was just able to watch them this evening.
