Channel 1100 says unavailable

I tried watching True Blood online but it says I don't have the right package. I have Premier.

I have a 22 mpbs but John Carter is taking 5+ hours to "record". Is that normal?

It won't let me set my DVR from my laptop. It says Please Try Again.

Do the receivers have to be on to record and download?


I would greatly appreciate your answers.

this may take a day or so to get working. Not uncommon after a reboot.

no but some ISPs are restricting DirecTv Ondemand.
The max the DirecTV servers send is about 7-8 Mb/s, which is enough to start watching fairly quickly.

As mentioned, it can be your ISP provider. Who do you have?

Isn't that basically illegal? Comcast got in trouble for doing things like that.

I believe preventing access is against FCC rules (but there have been some in Washington wanting to overrule that), but throttling is allowed.
I think that is what VOS is referring to. The download is throttled enough that the download of the VOD takes a long time.
