It's been over a hour since I reset my HR22-100. All internet features are working but still not getting Youtube. Is a puzzlement. Any other suggestions?

I've asked about it, but I don't have anything specific to offer at the moment.

Guess some of us will have to wait this out until a solution is found. .....Thanks Doug

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 just used smart search on my HR24 and I got YouTube. And I didn't reboot. Cool.

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.

WOW! Watching today's episode of Bleach now using YouTube on my HR20-700. What a pleasant surprise to come home to. Will be making heavy use of this.

I guess that blows my theory out the door. It had worked for me 40 minutes after a reboot.

I guess check back in 24hrs and see if it pops up.

Oh .. Vevo.com is not part of Youtube. You won't find videos from Vevo.com on here.
