    With my HR21, I seem to be unable to record a 3D PPV movie that comes on later. I can record the current showing, but if I select a future showing, the only option presented is "Buy/Watch". Does this mean I have to watch it live and record it then? I have only bought one PPV movie before and watched it "live".

    I've read other threads on this general topic and see conflicting advice.

    You should be able to just hit the Record button while highlighted on it in the Guide. When you go to play, pull up the Info and you should be able to pay for the show then and watch it.
