    Does'nt Seem to be working. I tried downloading a couple shows but seems like the dvr scheduler may be broken. The shows did'nt come through. internet, network and network services all pass and i can download from my reciever no problem. Directv2pc works fine too.

      This is being discussed over on DBSTalk,but I figured I would post the update on here too.
      The Incredible Hulk is now available in 1080p from DirecTV On Demand.
      Go to channel 1100,select High-Def and scroll down the listing of movies.
      There are currently two listings for The Hulk.The 1080p version is the second title,located underneath Hellboy II.
      The film is available until 3/31/09 and costs $4.99.

        Some more 1080p content has showed up recently on channel 1100.
        The content is trailers for the 9 following films:
        Eagle Eye
        Ghost Town
        Hellboy 2
        Iron Man
        Kung Fu Panda
        Sukiyaki Western
        The Women
        Transsiberian* ? I don't know if DirecTV spelled that title correctly or not,but that is how it is spelled in the listings.
        Tropic Thunder
        The HD 1080p icon is listed next to each title contained in the listings on channel 1100.

          It's been awhile since this topic has been visited...
          But,nothing has changed,as far as I can tell..
          The same 1080p trailers are still listed on channel 1100.
          Perhaps DirecTV will start offering some full-length movies in 1080p soon.

                    Well I don't know if that's the official name for it, but it's the program DIRECTV is running to reward their loyal customers on their anniversaries. Some people have been getting free premium channels and others have been getting free PPV movies, and that's what I got... So three FREE PPV is my reward!

                      Tropic Thunder is now showing up in the 1080p list on channel 1100,but it shows an HD icon beside the title,not 1080p.

                        It appears that the 1080p material is "not ready for prime time" yet.
                        The 1080p tab,along with the movies,has been removed from channel 1100.
