ppv movie

I am trying to watch a PPV movie that loads into channel FXM. It seems to load OK but I can only watch it on the DVR it loads into, not any of the others on my home network. It won't let me load the movie into any of the other DVRs diretctly, Any ideas?

I think that's how it works with PPV downloads. They're only playable on the DVR where they're recorded.

yes, I remembered that after I posted. but it does not explain why my "home" DVR was grayed out in the list of DVR choices for the download in the first place. Only my two bedroom DVRS were allowed for the download choice.
