    It says it is an invalid link.

    I got up this morning and started working on uninstalling and reinstalling, looking for any lingering keys that may have been around (didn't find any after an hour but i'm not great with the registry) to see if that would have made things any better, so far nothing still.

    Did deinstall / install. Still the same here. PoitNarf has a point in his post, the reinstall didn't go to the original discover screen.

    There is a CDkey within several of the INI files that is associated with a link to verify it and it looks to be associated with DTCP. When i followed the link in my browser I was given the response of INVALID CD_KEY could this perhaps be the reason we are having the DTCP fail?

    If this problem has something to do with DRM could it be that this is a time where you really need to have an Intel ViiV system to get this to work?

    I can try that. I know we mentioned one PC but in this case it might matter. I'll deinstall from the other PC if it works here.

    Negative, it didn't work on my Viiv PC either. Same message. I'm going to uninstall it from my Viiv PC for now.

    OK, it was just a thought. Good thing I guess since I sure wasn't planning on going out an purchasing a new ViiV system;)

    In Viiv's defense though, where MediaShare is concerned I've had zero issues since the CE (please don't ask me when, it was a while ago! ;)) came down to fix music track data. I know the manual with the software we downloaded says that there isn't a fix, but with Vista and Viiv, my music is displayed in track order without me doing anything to the filenames.

    Spent some time tonight looking into the PC playback.

    My setup
    The HR20-700 is at 192.168.1.12, connected thru hr21-200 to backbone switch (all 4 other HR20-700s, HR21-700, and HR21-200s are all networked and at most recent CE—HR21-700 is at 0x1fe, one HR20-700 is awaiting HMC PC playback download so is still at 0x1fe.)

    Laptop was either: 192.168.1.9 (both wired and wireless) or 192.168.1.15 (wired)

    Wired is GigE to switch then 100mbs to backbone. Wireless is ~48mbs to switch then 100mbs to backbone.

    Ran four sets of tests:
    1) wireless
    2) wired (as 192.168.1.9)
    3) wired (as 192.168.1.15)
    4) back to wireless.

    Test 1
    Started and stopped the DIRECTV.exe application several times. At some point, also started running netstat -obn (numbers only, with process ID, and process name). I noticed that the DIRECTV.exe application was in “SYN_SENT” state to an illegal address: 192.168.9.1 at port 5678. Wondered if somehow it was confusing 192.168.1.9 with …9.1. And it seemed to happen at start up, not at the time it was trying to play the program.

    Test 2
    So I attempted to recreate the problem with a different IP address. Unfortunately, when I went from wireless to wired, I ended up with the same IP address. (smart network services in Vista?)

    This time I saw some interesting connections between the application and the rest of the world, but didn’t run thorough tests at this stage.

    Test 3
    Wired at 192.168.1.15. Netstats did not show a state of “SYN_SENT” to 192.168.9.1 or to 192.168.15.1. It did show a “SYN_SENT” state from the laptop back to itself at port 2869. Never seemed to establish a connection to itself.

    Test 4
    Wireless again. Netstat showed the application trying to connect back to the laptop at port 2869. It also established a connect with another DVR+ at 192.168.1.4 for some reason.

    Also be aware, there are times when the application seems to be consuming enough of some resource that all the other networked applications (instant messaging, DBSTalk chat, browsing, etc.) all fail. If the application is trying to connect to via a DNS name at that time, perhaps it is getting bogus data or presuming bogus data and trying to connect to a device in theory at that bogus address?

    My guess is that some serious network sniffing of the PCs interactions with the HR20 and the outside world will lead to identifying the problem.

    I tried to chase the soap requests and responses without a sniffer that really understands SOAP. Ouch!

    What I did see was a response that looked like the HR20 was telling the PC to connect to the HR20 as DTCP host at port 10000 (another test, this time the DIRECTV application did a SYN_SENT to port 10000 on the HR20. Never established.)

    About this time I ran out of steam for the night. Hopefully this analysis will help the developers.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I am still getting the same issue as my fellow posters, and have another issue to report:

    When viewing the playlist on the tv the message where you can press play to play all the shows in a group... the type breaks after the word PLAY and the message is incomplete.

    on the PC the message is properly formatted.

    Just got home and tried to power on. No response from remote. No response from buttons on HR20. Had to do an RBR. First one I HAD to do on this box since I got in Oct '07.

    Perhaps this is the reason why my computer becomes completely unresponsive for over 30 seconds when starting the application.

    Looking at netstat and wireshark, the best I can tell is that the application is communicating to the HR20-700 via the following ports:

    49152: likely for access to the directory information. This seems to work and is likely why the program listing comes up as expected. This is the same port as the media share and seems to be relatively stable at this point.

    10000: This port kicks in when the {PLAY} button is selected in the PC Playback software. I don't know that everything will be passed along port 10000 or not, but it's possible.

    49153: Not sure what's going across here, but it's random and doesn't seem to be related to the PC Playback program per se.

    Doug, did you actually see a connect at 10000 or just a "SYN_SENT"?

    Tom / Doug,

    You guys are doing a monster job with the network sniffing, that is way beyond my knowledge of networking.

    I wanted to add too, that since we've gone through two firmware versions and are still having issues, if it's helpful to work on this together in "real time" I'd be up for a live chat to do stuff and respond whenever the powers that be wanted to do it.

    Just offering it up as a way to help troubleshoot if it'll help.

    Tony,

    Excellent offer. There might be some interest on the part of the DIRECTV people at some point.

    Or just the group of us, if we think of a direction to take this next. :)

    And I'm willing to open a special chatroom for us anytime I'm online.

    Thanks,
    Tom
