Problem with YouTube
Posted 07 December 2012 - 09:22 AM
“There was a problem connecting to the internet. Please test your connection.”
When I run the suggested test, I get the following error:
“Playback Errors due to dropped connections. This receiver appears to be experiencing network playback errors. If you are experiencing problems watching recorded content, please call Customer Service....blah.blah.. Diagnostic Code: 72-79-744”
I don’t have any problems viewing recorded content across the network. When I press the dash on the remote, it says it is connected to the internet. Pandora works fine. Game Lounge work fine. TV Apps work fine. I’ve reset the HR34 twice, but that hasn’t helped.
The internet connection is via a DECA, which is connected to my network switch via Ethernet. Any ideas?

Works fine for me. See if you can ping your HR34 from your PC. You might have to reconnect HR34 to your router. Happens to me sometimes time when I move my unit.
I just went through taking the entire network down and then bringing everything back up 1 at a time. I also unplugged all of the receivers, clients, DECA, and power inserter and brought all of that back up 1 at a time. It didn't help.
Yes, I can ping all of the receivers from my PC. I did notice one thing, my router is not assigning an IP to the DECA. Is it suppose to get one? I see that it has a MAC address, so I would think so, but I'm not sure. All of the receivers do get IPs.

Those changes only break unofficial apps that attempt to grab the video by scraping the source code of the web page. Official partners like DirecTV, XBox and some Bluray players use an API, so changes to their website don't affect them.
Same thing is happening with free to air boxes, like the AZ Box Premium plus. YouTube keeps changing their security parameters and it requires a firmware update.

Can someone else check the IP on their C31 and see if it shows the router assigned IP?
Everything except YouTube works on all receivers. OnDemand, Pandora, etc. But YouTube doesn't work on any of them.

The C31's will not show an IP address from your router they will only show the 169. link local Ip address.
Thanks for the info. I know the internet is working. I can also schedule recordings with the Iphone App, but no YouTube. Strange.

It does appear to take a while.
