"Free on Demand" bug

Major Havoc

Because the Hopper continues to not record shows properly that are part of PTAT, I have the option often to watch them on demand to see shows screwed up.

OK, so I delete the show that is wrong, and go back to search for the show. There, on the screen, is the list if shows still in the DVR, and a list of shows that say "Free on Demand." These are shows I also happened to just have deleted.

BUT, if I click on when of them, it brings up the DVR screen for watching the show currently sitting in the trash, NOT the video on demand show I want to watch. I have to wait for the shows in the DELETE folder to actually delete before I can watch them on demand. Except, often, by the time that happens, they are no longer available on VOD.

Sorry if this does not make sense. Here are a few images to help.


So I select the video on demand item in the list and press enter, and this is what I get:



This is what i would see if the video was stiil in the DVR space. EXCEPT, then it would show as a DVR item in the first list, and it doesn't. This is a bug. Bottom line, stop looking in the trash when trying to start an item. And if it says Video on Demand, GO THERE!

You can manually empty the trash. Are these PTAT shows?
