    Last week I swapped out my last SD receiver for a HR22. Since then the HR22 passes the network services test but when I right arrow no widgets. I checked the widgets.directv.com web site and it does not show this new receiver while www.directv.com site does. Does someone need to manually keep things in sync, if yes how do I get it added??? Thanks

    Did you do the IAMANEDGECUTTER and WEDGIES searches on the new unit?

    Had the egdecutter and the pokeeyenow, but forgot the wedgies. Too many dang back door codes to remember. But now the *(@#$^@^ box doesn't pass the net services test anymore. I think I'll just let it be for awhile and go watch the market crash.

    You are not alone. I have done all of the searches, have network services (fortunes work) and my HR21-700 shows up on the widgets web site but I haven't had any response to the right arrow except for the original "coming soon" widget. I don't even see any extra network activity when pressing the key like I do with my HR20-700 (which shows the widgets).

    My HR22 has the dock bar, but it isn't on the widgets site either. i have previously asked both Doug and The shadow about it. No response yet. Maybe they aren't ready to turn these on. My HR20 and HR21 both 700's work fine

    I had fortunes with the one beofre that. X289 or something like that.I Have had the Widgets dock bar since "the next step" was announced.It still says "coming soon." Network services actually "passes" the test. The IRD is still not on the widgets site.

    "It looks" like the widgets page doesn't update from our account page.
    What ever the site [widgets] showed when it was setup is the way it is.
    I changed the locations around on "my account" so I could tell which was where, yet they all are still the same on the widgets page.

    Back to one my original issues, the widgets.directv.com web site, if we add a new HD DVR how do I get the web site to get this new box added to the drop down box for adding widgets?

    No, 0x290, but it hasn't worked on that box for the past several CEs (it did for several before that). I think it stopped when one of the CEs was an earlier NR candidate which didn't support widgets and never came back when I upgraded to widget-compatible software.

    Sounds like network services...
    I've had "everything" working until 0x290, when I lost fortunes, but widgets are still working [slowly].

    That's the same way it works now here....we were told that with 0290 Fortunes would be gone, but widgets would continue to work....and that's what they do here too.

    Also, wasn't there a release that needed to have pokeeyenow redone?
    IIRC some needed to pokeeyelater and then "now" to restore the function [just a thought]
