    I have the same problem, and was wondering myself....
    It sucks not being able to schedule a recording in the 590's

    Try installing noppv manually and then run it from bash. It takes a minute or two to clear all the ppv flags and will need to be run about once every week to 10 days. It will allow advance scheduling of all PPV's but will only record them if you're authorized to receive them.

    Ok, I guess now that I am reading this a bit closer, my problem might be a bit different.
    I actually want all the channels to behave normally, if I want to record on 107 3 hours from now, I select it now & go to the Purchase and record info page....
    This doesn't happen on the adult channels, I have to be there when it starts... I was hoping I could just make mine behave normally... It's a bit of a pain having to order over the internet if I want to record something coming on later.

    You should be able to order over the internet in advance and schedule the show for recording if you run noppv as I indicated. It removes the noppv flag so you don't get the purchase and record info option but rather lets you set it up for recording in advance just like any other show. If you haven't ordered the PPV via the DTV website and have not received authorization for the show then it will either record a blank screen with a nag message or nothing at all. It may record the first few minutes and then quit. I believe this is the case for normal PPVs but probably won't happen with the 590's since it's unlikely you'll get the free 5-minute preview like with normal PPVs.

    there must be a way to do it via the menu. i am almost certain that it used to allow you to purchase the ppv's in the 590's in advance. perhaps it does not now, but i highly doubt it.
