Message 1 of 5

I have been receiving this message for quite some time when trying to order PPV events by remote. I'm still getting this error after having been sent a new DVR unit. For a while I was fine with ordering online or by phone instead. However last time I ordered online it appeared successful however the PPV did not start. When I attempted to call in the order the customer service rep. said they could see the internet order but that they would also place the order in the system and that it should start within half an hour. It never started. Perhaps not being able to order by remote had nothing to do with the failure of the PPV playing after having been ordered online and by phone however I'd still like this to be fixed. I've spent too many hours on the phone. Please advise.
