    The widgets came up right away after downloading the CE :)

    When I hit the right arrow while playing a media share video, a popup box said I needed to quit that first, but the widget displayed anyway.

    When I tried this morning, widgets came up just fine on my HR20-700. However, my HR21-100 will not show widgets.

    I tried re-doing all the searches.... IAMANEDGECUTTER, POKEEYENOW and WEDGIES, but none of them worked.

    I am getting fortunes and VOD on that machine, so I know that its not a network problem.

    I'll try again later.

    I'm getting them on my HR20-700 but not the HR21-700. I didn't get a chance to download 0x27d to the HR21 last night but will try upgrading tonight.

    I downloaded to both the 20-700 and 21-100. Haven't downloaded to the 21-700 yet, but will do that tonite and let you know what happens.

    Still don't have widgets on the 21-700. I may just re-start it to see what happens.

    I just networked my new HR21-200. Networking on the HR21 enabled all on its own. I then opened ports (evidently I have to do that manually with my router), poked my eye, gave myself a wedgie, and Widgets and the Daily Fortune came right up! It's all good here, Widgets are working on all three HR's. :joy:

    Having more trouble with the widgets. On my HR20-700 which is the only one that I have been able to see widgets on, its become very sporadic.

    I can only get widgets to show up 1 out of 10 times that I press the right arrow key. Also, it's taking forever for it to show up, when it does show up.

    I still can't get any response to widgets on my HR21-100.

    HR20-700, with mine it takes about five sec to display.
    "I think" this is due to these being "real" widgets as opposed to the "coming soon" place holder we've had before.

    Yeah, a suggestion would be to have a "Widgets Loading ..." message appear as soon as RIGHT is pressed, and then replace that with the Widget dock ...

    I notice that I see activity on my router almost immediately, so I can tell that way.

    I upgraded my HR21-700 to 0x27D last night, but still no widgets. I double-checked that the IAMANEDGECUTTER, POKEEYENOW AND WEDGIES keyword searches had all been done.

    Drew:

    Just as an FYI and for others with the DIR-655 D-Link Router....there is another new thread indicating a firmware update, which supposedly resolved the whole Network Services failing issue. I hope to test upon return from my travels later this week.

    Just in time for an all new network setup. I am moving the router tonight, and adding a switch in the office, and hardwiring all 3 of my HRxx's tonight. Thanks
