Could it be a similar issue?


It is possible I suppose ... Clearly something isn't right in this situation.

40 minutes later and it kicked on.....YouTube shows up.

I guess the best advice to those not seeing it is to do the reboot, make sure your apps work (to verify internet functionality), and wait a while....maybe within an hour YouTube will be up and running.

Boy does this work great! What a welcome addition. Wish we could log in to our YT accounts, or rate videos via this interface.

Curious,

Had the YouTube access feature for almost two months now on all my HD DVRs. Was it released in regional stages similar to the staggered rollout of a firmware NR and this is just the formal announcement for the service now available nationwide?

pretty sure my unit was updated this morning, noticed that my recorded programs didnt show up. running 2tb external hd, rebooted the unit shows showed back up but the TV wasn't getting satellite signal. rebooted the unit again shows work again but it is not recognizing the external HD now. Rebooted numerous times with the same outcome. Last resort will be to hook it up to my other DVR to see if the unit works and maybe buy a new HD or external dock. Anyone else having this problem?

Using Thermaltake BlacX Dock and WD WD20EVDS.

For those of you with a broadband connected HR2x DVR (or R22), you should now have access to Youtube videos via Smart Search.

Just search for something using Smart Search and then scroll to the end of the list. In addition to 'Keyword' search, a new search for 'Youtube' has been added.

Enjoy!


why are the results filtered. vevo music videos do not show on directv receiver

It's been in the Cutting Edge version for a while .. Also, there was a keyword to enable it during the testing phase. It's now available without the keyword to everyone.

I'm not aware of any filtering that might be happening. Have you tried typing in the ID string at the end of the video? I know you wouldn't normally search by this method, but it should at least tell you whether or not it is visible from your DVR.

"it should be available to all."

Perhaps there is some glitch. A shortcut to the list might be to try searching for 'AAAAA' That will clearly find "nothing" but you should see both 'Keyword' and 'youtube' search options on the list.


Did the restart and tried DBS and AAAAAA and still no YouTube. All I see is "Keyword" at bottom of right half of screen.

BTW: Neither one of my receivers reset last night. The blue ring lights weren't on this morning. The last time there was a national update (few weeks ago) only one STB was reset, the other never got it. Don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Most of my stuff is MKV. I have a few AVI. I've tried in the past to stream from my home server, but all it would stream was mpeg and mp3.


Playon.TV software does a wonderful job transcoding 720p MKV files. It is paid software, but worth its (virtual) weight in gold.

Did a reset (HR22-100). When reset cycle completed I did a system check (all items ok). TV Apps working, Movies, Photos & Music working, VOD working. Went to Smart Search, typed AAAAA. No Youtube. Any suggestions?

I realize that, but none of my boxes have ever been on a CE release, only NRs. Yet the YouTube feature has been available on them for about two months now.

Go figure ,,, :confused:

It's been available in the NR for a month (maybe 2), but required a keyword. As of today, a signal was sent to activate it .. Perhaps the keyword was entered on those that had it.

I did the reboot and "AAAAA" and waited over an hour and still nothing with you tube on it. I am getting the new Photo's, Music and More option but that just goes to my computer. Apps work.
