It's in the software, you may need to activate it for your account though.
there's another thread about that.

After that, it may take 24 hours to download the vod content to the receiver.

WELCOME to Satelliteguys!

The H20 update is in a seperate thread with notes, they are different.

Please give it a workout and post your feedback. DirecTV reviews posts and uses any issues to improve the software development, and then we start all over next Friday (usually anyway)

Remember that any CE releated issues need to be addressed here, do not call tech support.

Just downloaded my first CE. It went flawlessly. On Demand is up and running and I'm downloading my first movie as I type. The new guide features are great and fast.

Guide is much faster, last ce was slow. I have a question, When displaying my list of recorded shows, I like them A-Z. I can sort them that way. Is there a setting to make it keep sorting that way or do I have to change it each time? If I have to change it each time, I would like to suggest ( if I can ), that would be a good option to have.
