    Hi Guys

    1) Just plugged in a network cable, all the channels/programs show up but when I pick one and record it doesn't show up in my playlist.

    I was able to get one movie (Annie) to record so I know I'm hooked up.

    2) Is there a way to filter the free from the pay for programming? Seems like more $$ than free!

    3) I pay for HDNET but when I try to do a free HDNET (1561), it tells me to call to add the channel!

    561 / 1561 is HDNET MOVIES.

    I am using DoD with my new HR24-200 but also see some differences than how DoD worked in the past. Before when you chose a program(s) to download, it would show in the Queue until it the download was started, then it was show in the Playlist as it downloaded and after it was done. Now, nothing shows in Queue when I have programs set to download.

    I don't think there is a way to filter out Free stuff.

    I can view HDNet Movies DoD just fine on my end. You can view the regular channel (561) fine but can't download from their DoD channel?

    Are you saying you have the same problem? When I check the history, it says DL cancelled? Que shows nothing. I just plugged in the network cable last night and the connection test is good

    I get and pay for 561 just fine!

    I have the HD Extra Package but when I try to download a movie from HD Net Movies, I get a popup asking if I would like to subscribe to that channel. Something appears to be messed up in Directv's system for that channel.

    Just got off the phone with engineering regarding this problem.
    It's a glitch concerning the VOD HD extra pack. I was assured they're working on it and should be resolved soon.

    Not sure about your HDNET issue.

    I've had this happen before and it's pretty much a hit & miss. If I keep trying, it always records eventually.

    As far as filtering by "free" goes, I just check those channels (Sony, MGM, etc. ?) that are free......
