Can I limit PPV Now movies by language?
Yes, you can choose to have only English or only French movies pre-loaded for you. Press OPTIONS, select “Preferences”, expand “Tuners & Storage” and use the RIGHT or LEFT arrows to set your preference under the PPV Now option.
Why don’t I have any PPV Now movies available?
PPV Now movies will only be pre-loaded onto your HDPVR if there is enough hard drive space, with consideration to your existing and upcoming recordings. PPV Now will never conflict with your recordings. As well, PPV Now will be unavailable if your PVR is operating in Single Tuner Mode.
A movie I wanted to watch was there, and now it’s gone – what happened?
Your HDPVR will automatically manage the PPV Now library. A movie may have been deleted because space was needed for an upcoming recording or newer PPV movies, or the PPV movie may no longer be available due to scheduling and licensing. You can use Search to check for alternate airings, when available.
Will PPV Now ever delete my recordings?
No. PPV Now will only ever utilize unused hard drive space. If the hard drive gets close to capacity, PPV Now movies will always be deleted before your recorded content, and will never conflict with upcoming recordings.
Does PPV Now consume Internet bandwidth?
No. PPV Now movies come in over the satellite, just like traditional PPV. If you order the movie via your remote (using your internet connection), the amount of bandwidth used is extremely minimal.
Can I delete PPV Now movies?
You are able to delete PPV Now movies from within the PVR List entry – just press C while the title is highlighted and confirm. If you only have room for a few movies, deleting ones you are not interested in could allow room for another one that you may want to watch.
Can I disable PPV Now?
Yes, PPV Now can be completely disabled by pressing OPTIONS, going into Preferences, and disabling the PPV Now option under the “Tuners & Storage” header.
