    Why did you switch from Verizon, which I know you connect a TiVo Roamio to, to a POS like DirecTV? I have to wait till August when I receive my Apple dividend then I am changing back to Cox and a TiVo Roamio.

    I actually found someone else with a THR-22 and was able to ask them about the On Demand networks... not seeing them either.

    I'm wondering if the Tivo can't support the "Fast Forward Unavailable" option that the broadcast networks demand -- thus D* doesn't show them.

    If so that sucks... yet another fairly simple function that could be added that they either just forgot about, or ignored since they don't care about updating the box software...

    Did ATT dis able this feature? I have been able to get On Demand in the past, but lately no movies are displayed anywhere on any of the on demand screens.

    Apparently so. I never got this to work - every request would end up "Failed". I'm guessing that DirecTV got fed up with people complaining about it. If you use the web or a phone/tablet app to rent an On Demand program, it tells you that the THR22 is not supported.

    As I said, it worked for me in the past. this would assume that the THR22 is supported, even though mine is not connected "the DTV" way, just ethernet connection to my router.
