    I have found today the server is down. When I try to sign in I get the "internal server error" message

    I still find the server is down. Is anyone else seeing it?

    Last night, I shared with Doug that the Widgets sight was not allowing sign-ons for a number of us...so he is aware of it, and is researching.

    Completely lost widgets on all DVRs after downloading 0x028a.

    Both DVRs lost guide data, on demand, to do lists and widgets. Everything else came back.

    Network services test fine on both DVRs and I do have fortunes. Widgets... I just get the "Coming Soon" message.

    Rerunning the WEDGIES search doesn't help but does come up with a search result :eek2:

    If I can ever get network services to work again I can play with things. Right now, I'm dead in the water. :(

    Don't know where the breakdown is at this point.

    maybe 3-4 CEs back, I needed to rework the settings for network services. Before "auto" worked fine, but then I needed to change to manual [as the port changed # and became two ports]. Next I needed to setup each [of the two] ports by IP in my router.
    Since then all of my receivers have been working fine.
    "Standard drill": reset defaults, set manual for services, "get conntected" and if the test failed, reboot receiver.

    I have widgets on my HR20-700 after getting 0x28A, but it is still missing on my HR21-700 (network services and everything else is working on both).

    [Dumb question]
    Have you gone back to the Widgets website and checked to see if they're still added to that DVR?
    I looked last night and found they'd been "dropped" from one of mine.

    Running 0x28A on 2 HR20-700's and 1 HR21-200. All get widgets still fine.

    In fact, I added in Doug's new widget just fine on the website yesterday.

    If I knew how to edit that file, I'd update the versions howing in it, but its a pretty neat widget in and of itself.

    My biggest issue with widgets is the amount of time it takes to load - way to long. They actually make the active channel seem like it loads fast.

    They still show up for both receivers on the website, just not on the HR21 itself. I see a very small amount of network activity after pressing the right arrow (and a lot of activity when I do it on my HR20).

    Can't report this in the 028A thread in the CE issues forum, but I had a glitch in a recording at the exact moment I tried Widgets tonight.

    I was recording WABC-7 HD while watching a recording from the playlist, and decided to hit RIGHT to see if the widget dockbar would appear over a recording. It took several seconds to appear, and after I cleared it, I pressed INFO to note the time.

    Later, I watched the recording that was made while I tested the dockbar, and the recording went to black and lost video/audio at the same moment that I had tested by pressing RIGHT earlier.

    I updated the widgets last night on one of my HR's. Then I copied those to the other HR's but it added them to the existing ones so I had to go through and delete all the duplicates. Shouldn't there be an option to just replicate the widgets on all of the HR's?

    For whatever reason, the my widgets page won't load properly in ie7. I can drag and drop to rearrange and deactivate the widgets, but cannot "Mouse over a widget for options."

    This works fine in Safari.

    I am attaching the error messages that ie7 provides when clicking the little "done with errors" message in the bottom status bar:

    Although I still get the same errors on my computer at home running ie7, I can get the options by scrolling over my widgets.

    Both computers (home and work) are running XP-Pro SP3

    I can't log into the website tonight. I never had any problems with this before.
