Since D* added the YouTube extra I have never been able to get it to work. When selected it would always fail with the message "YouTube is being updated. Check back in an hour." I finally got off my duff and sought to remedy this error. I discovered that the issue is with the port forwarding that I did not have setup in my router (Cisco WRT54G2V1 running latest firmware). I have no other D*/internet issues (Pandora is fine, internet connection tests fine). Hunting through Google I found a handy writeup in this very forum on how to correct a similar situation (even using a very similar Linksys router - http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=160811
1. IP address assigned to DVR (HR20) used in port forwarding entry as recipient of forwarding.
2. 2 consecutive ports opened in router and also identified in manual network setup in DVR.
3. Test connection - failed - 301 error.
4. Power cycled router. Test connection failed - 301 error
I'd appreciate any suggestions anyone might have to debug this further.
