    On both my HR21 and an HR34, YouTube and Pandora are gone.

    The other icons under Menu/Extras are still there, but these two are gone.

    I have rebooted both systems; and at the recommendation in another thread, have done a 'double reboot', that is, two reboots within 30 minutes of each other.

    Under Menu/Settings/Network, the Advanced Networking tells me I have Internet connectivity. And the Network Services test runs fine and tells me Networks Services are running. That is for both the HR21 and the HR34.

    I have also re-input the famous IAMANEDGECUTTER search. That should not have been necessary, but it was one more thing to try.

    Sorry, I don't have a good handle on when Pandora went away, only that it is no longer available...

    Any ideas for a fix would be most welcome........

    :)

    The results for a quick double reset wont be seen immediately. Could take up to a day.

    Happened on my Genie (HR34) when I received (forced the update actually) 0x0744. A double restart of the Genie and they reappeared after 24-48 hours.

    That's funny. The Music & Photos Media Share all of a sudden returned to my Extras yesterday...or at least yesterday is when I noticed it.

    They had worked for years when I was using Powerline adapters for internet access. When I converted to SWM with a Wireless CCK for internet access it disappeared from every box on my system. That was probably a year ago.

    Last night when I went to check my Caller ID log I see that it is back.

    AND THE BIG FIX:

    Is apparently the double-boot followed by 24 hours of prayer. Sure enough, the Icons are back in the Menu/Extra display, and they work just fine.

    Must be some really great code involved here. There are probably some voodoo chants that could speed up the recovery process, but they are not documented.

    Sure glad these folks don't build Pacemakers...

    Its interesting that only Pandora and You Tube are the ones that pull a Houdini.. and only for about 15% of subscribers.

    No, you should keep expressing your opinion. I think you're doing it quite well.
