INPPV from comcast, are they hd? with OAR?

i seen the inhd "ORDER IN" showing PPV preview in HD but some aren't OAR?

Anyone tried it before with DVR? How long it it stays in the box?

I ordered VOB with hd program before and it last 24 hours.

Thanks

I don't think anyone wants to risk the $6 to find out. They need to lower it to $3-$4.

I'm still interested to find out if they're Copy Once or Copy Never.

i checked some of them yesterday and it's cheaper than VOB, $3.99 compare to $5.99.

VOB is the only channel i can't dump to pc, but never got the chance to try on dvhs. The 24 hours grace period ended before i knew it. If INPPV is HD, i am going to try it again.

I don't know about your area, but here in Ft. Lauderdale the movies are advertised in HD on INHD's "Order In", but they're all in SD and 4:3.

The only place Comcast has HDTV movies is on there Video On Demand Service. But there are like 3 movies..... Besides that, They have movies in widescreen with 5.1 Surround. I havent tested the quatily yet ( its 4 buck per movie.).

btw, I am in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

If they want to get more folks to try the service, they should offer one free sample title so we can check the picture quality. I've heard its poor.
