    87 means you are not connecting to the servers properly. 88 is what you want.
    Could be a firewall issue or you need to reload your plugins

    87 Code Issue...The receiver successfully connects to the internet, but cannot connect to a specific DIRECTV server...The DIRECTV server may be unavailable or the customer's router could be blocking access...Broadband callback not successful, try again later...Cause/Resolution...Wait a few minutes and retry (Restore Defaults and then Connect Now)...If 87 still occurs, verify access to TV Apps, VOD, YouTube and inform the customer that they need to disable router Firewalls which may be blocking connections for DIRECTV services. Retry "CONNECT NOW" test to verify internet connectivity...If unsuccessful, escalate to DIRECTV ISS.

    There's more to it than being successfully connected to the internet. I gave you the possible cause and resolutions. You need to follow the resolution steps.

    Is it Just "ONE" show or can not you download any on-demand channel?
    If it's one show -it may be that server --Try another channel

    Suggestion -Using your remote --DO a Search all of CLEARMYBOX --then wait 24 to 48 hours and test again-- Sometimes when a NEW Firmware Download from D* is received -it can cause that and CLEARMYBOX can fix it
