PPV ordering via remote? This was a standard feature on the old legacy receivers and I didn't realize it was no longer possible until I got some PPV coupons.

Who the heck orders PPV anyways? With Netflix, etc., this is really an outdated feature and certainly not an "improvement".

I assume that the Wifi is for content on demand, thereby eliminating the need for hardwired Ethernet connection.

I assume also that the 800 is the non-PVR version.

Looks like an "upgraded" box with a higher price tag. Remind me again, what are the new features?
