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?

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 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.

When in doubt, just wait. Give it overnight to see if it appears as an option before you try any resets or anything.

works great, but
when I search for my own videos (using my YouTube account name, or video titles) on YouTube with smart search they never get returned
what am I doing wrong?

Youtube is not showing up on either of my HR21-100's. I did a reboot of one and it made no difference.. so I'm trying a re-download of 452 by doing a 02468 reset. I want my Youtube!

Really though Directv.. let's hope that burying Youtube searches in SmartSearch is only a temporary measure. It should be its own menu item.

Ok for those who do not see youtube. Try searching for KSQL, San Carlos Airport. You will not see any video listing but you should see on the right of your screen "KSQL YOUTUBE." Highlight that , press enter and you should see a list of various activities at KSQL.

The 02468 reset didn't work either. Still no Youtube. I will wait.

By the way for me every time I've ever hit the right arrow button I get a message saying "TV Apps is still initializing, try again later". So it's never worked. But I am definitely connected to the internet... I've used on demand many times and my system test shows no problems.

I'm not sure if this will help, but I did just notice that by default under parental controls option web videos is set to block. Maybe it needs to be set to allow. I can't try it myself as I don't have my receivers connected to the internet.

Hope this helps

Ah, this is a possibility .. I don't use parental controls so this was never a problem for me, but it might be why some people are having trouble.

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.


well the directv youtube search results do not match the wii nedia center search results. I can view vevo music videos fine on wii.
