The widget preview appears to have disappeared again.
yup gone here too
Here as well.
Not tried here .. I haven't got the word that we're moving forward again yet .. although if I put my ear to the track there is a faint noise in the distance.
That faint noise could be Widgets......or maybe something bigger . (cough cough) Come on just a hint
That's OK...not only lost Widgets with this last CE, but also Fortunes and Network Service passing....
Looks like we're a bit away from further testing still.
Forutnes still work for me. Just so you know. Now on all three on my HRxx's
The issues thread is littered with posts showing Fortunes, Widgets, and Network Services is broken (CE 0x0274 just updated this past weekend)...so its curious you seem to be the only one with it still working....
IDK, but I checked fortunes last night (im bored and home alone). I still have them. I can post screen shots I guess. It would be with my blackberry but.....Now I am on an automatic setup. (some have done prt forwarding) and the ports have changed. So maybe try to reconfigure. Since the Ports changed a soft reboot was required to bring them back up after restart network services. If you want I can give you the ports listed once I go home. (i am at work)
Fortunes are working for me on all 5 receivers. Network setup is in my sig.
Widgts are, of course, absent.
Fortunes working here too. Widgets are not as expected.
While this thread is about Widgets....I have to say that I'm surprised several of you still get Fortunes, since there are over 120 posts now from users (in the issues and discussion threads) stating that the latest CE broke the Network Services functionality and Fortunes have disappeared along with the Widgets. All those posters also indicated that their Network Services tests failed now, whereas before this last CE, they passed.
My whole network seemed to take a dump. The port that used to be "automatic" changed, so my "one port fits all" port forwarding couldn't be used.
I had to change to manual setup for the services, add two ports to forward for each receiver by IP as my router wouldn't let them share as before.
Then there was the reset defaults, "get connected", restart services, run system tests, and a reboot. [I beleive those were the steps for each].
In my case, I had to play with my DSL modem and my router too, as the modem was new and didn't "play well with others".
Widgets are not available in 0x274 ..
I was losing Network Services after every reboot until I stopped using uPNP and set up port forwarding in my router. It has been solid since then.
That was the case here too - up until THIS LAST CE....
Doug has now confirmed above that Widgets are bye bye for now...
No problems here with Fortunes on all my HD DVRs. No widgets of course.
Fortunes here. No Widgets.
Last two CE's: Page down goes to Fortunes, not Parental, Fav's & Setup. Liked it the other way ...
