    Thanks. Yes, you can only hire a movie for 48 hrs.

    Hi ajayro57

    All the Fox units I know (set up too many friends ones over the years) have copy protection methods which play up unless you go "video direct" into the TV and "audio direct" into your theatre setup. PITA. The first thing you lose is the sync. Even going direct into both I have had to tinker delays sometimes.

    If I ever went that way, I suspect I would be looking for hacks / cracks on the basis that they are not fit for purpose as delivered. Especially after a friends HD unit deleted the movies he ordered after 48 hours before he had a chance to view them. Also incredibly arrogant and rude IMO.
