Sometimes, TVs with 1080p have issues. I do not understand what it means but there is 1080p @ 24, 1080p @60, 1080p @120, etc. My LG TV doesn't have a problem with any of them, but sometimes 1080p @ 24 makes my Samsung do exactly what you're describing. I don't know why or what I do differently when it works! Sorry, I wasn't much help but I am curious about this, too.

This is usually a sign that your TV does not support 1080p/24 which is what DirecTV uses for movies. Many older HDTVs only support 1080p/60. But it does not matter. Just watch the movie in 1080i, you will get the same quality. Short explanation - the moves are filmed at 24 fps and so 1080i contains all the same info as 1080p/24 or 1080p/60.

go to demand and click on movies and scroll and you will see MGM AND MOVIE IN 1080P. I download Behind enemy line 1080p.

Its also not gonna be 1080p/60 or 120 from Directv, only 1080p/24. There is actually no such thing as 1080p/120 AFAIK, at least not in tv and movie.

I looked last night and didn't see MGM available. Are you getting it on channel 1567? My on demand doesn't even show movies as an option.

I don't have a listing for action/adventure. What software version are you running?

Edit: I see it now, under movies. There are some MGM titles, but they are on channel 1000, so MGM isn't available as a channel, just some of their movies.
