Could Not Upload Your Events Because You Do Not Have Sufficient Access On The Target Calendar

A colleague at work today had some questions regarding Google Calendar that I attempted to assist him with. In the process I ran into some things that didn’t make a lot of sense to me so I wanted to point out some of the issues I found with importing Calendar Events into Google Calendar. Below I will explain the error I received and how I worked around the error and was able to successfully import the items I had been having an issue with.

How to Purchase DirecTV Pay Per View Video On Demand Movies Without a Phone Line

When my DirecTV receivers were initially installed they didn’t have a phone line attached to them however they also did not have Ethernet attached to them. The default a installation technician will use is to have them in the DirecTV system as having a phone line attached. The phone line being attached allows for you to purchase PPV (Pay Per View) movies, VoD (Video on Demand) movies, and used to allow for upgrading of the receiver software. Since I never had a phone line attached to the receiver I would always order my PPV movies online. It also appears that all software updates now happen over the satellite signal to keep your receiver up to date. I always wished I was able to purchase Pay Per View movies directly from my remote to save the hassle of signing into directv.com and having to purchase the movie that way.
