    Not a biggie, more just curious...

    I use Chrome on my MacBook most of the time. If I try to log in to the DireTV web site I get "Invalid Server Certificate". I called DirecTV on this and suggested there was a problem. They assured me there isn't and suggested I try another browser. Sure enough it works fine on the same MacBook using Safari. This has been so for several months.

    I've run into a few other web sites where I have to use Safari instead of Chrome for other reasons, but not "Invalid Server Certificate". Mostly just an annoyance but wanting to satisfy my curiosity.

    I'm viewing and posting at DBSTalk right now just fine with Chrome on a PC. It also works just fine on my Android tablet Chrome browser.

    Works fine using IE as well on the PC.

    Make sure your time and date are set correctly, and your timezone, with daylite savings turned off. If your time is off it will always cause Cert. errors.
