    Speaking for myself I'm not having any remote problems and TV Apps work fine on my HR22-100. But I agree with you on Youtube. It has more problems than a dead monkey on a rock.

    FWIW, I just verified it's working here. Played about half a dozen YouTube videos all the way through, ranging from 2 to 10 minutes in length.

    Guess I'm just lucky.

    HR20-700, 0x458

    you ain't kidding....Guide/remote problems are getting to the point of "no return"...I've had D since 1998 and never have seen problems like I have now with my HR20-700; I wonder if an DVR upgrade will solve this problem...I mean, it's just such a hassle to do any channel surfing at all.....I try an update almost every day to see if there is any improvement...then all of a sudden, everything works fine (for a while)..very frustrating. I called customer support the other night to discuss Youtube issue; I casually mentioned remote/guide problems to him...he immediately glossed over that point to explain the youtube/smartsearch technique...I didn't bring it up anymore because I have been so "bludgeoned" by the remote/guide lag, that I've learned to live with it...

    Here's the latest: If I try to play a YouTube video, I'm told that I'm "not connected to the internet". If I run a test, I am connected. If they're going to provide the feature, is it unreasonable to expect that it will actually work?

    No youtube on a HR22/100. TV Apps have never worked and I have spent a total of probably 12 hours over last few months screwing around with router settings trying to get it to work. Port forwarding, enabling/disabling DMZ, enabling/disabling UPnP. All I get is a 301 error. VOD works fine and system status says that I am connected to the internet. It seems that TV apps just do not work with certain routers.

    Can anyone confirm if working TV apps is required for Youtube access?

    Yes, TV Apps needs to work.

    Press and hold {INFO}
    Choose "More System Info"
    Scroll down the list to find your network settings and post them here.

    I got TV Apps to work. I changed from a old linksys router to a fairly new dlink router.

    You tube still aint working, but now I have hope. I'll reboot and see what happens.

    ------------------

    Using a D-Link WBR-1310 Wireless G Router. HR22/100 is connected to router via Ethernet. VOD works fine. Tried Port Forwarding ports 27177 and 27178, no success. Tried putting HR22 in the DMZ which is supposed to put the device outside the router, in theory bypassing any router firewall. Even connected the HR22 directly to the "radio" (my internet provider is a WISP) using the appropriate settings from my ISP. HR22 said that I was connected to the internet but still error 301 on network services and no TV apps.

    I am beginning to wonder if my WISP has something configured that is blocking network services. I have thought about trying a new router, but the one I have is functional and hate to buy a new one that doesn't fix the problem.

    TIA for your help. I don't really care about TV apps, but the ability to access Youtube would be very nice.

    OK. YouTube is now working for me. The biggest obstacle was getting TVApps to work. Once TVApps was working, I did the reboot and youtube appeared later. I did have to go to parental setting and allow web content.

    I am pretty much confirming everything that was stated in this thread.

    To get TVApps to work I had to change my router. No port forwarding or anything else worked. Once I changed the router, I set everything to auto on my HR20-100 and it pretty much was a breeze after that.

    One thing I had to do was connect the receiver directly to the router to get the internet to work. Once the internet was working I could connect it to a hub or switch. The HR20-100 was also messing up anything else on that hub until I got internet working. Once the internet connection was set I could then connect it to a hub and everything on that hub worked fine. Not sure why, just another weird networking thing.

    I hereby retract what I said in my post of 2/14/11 about the audio quality being less than ideal on some youtube videos (intermittent glitches)... seems I was still using 0x456 s/w on my HR20-700. The next day 0x458 downloaded and the videos that had caused problems with the audio were now trouble free.

    Nope. Still stuck on 0x452 on my HR21-100s. When is 0x457 going to be pushed for this receiver? Or can it be pulled?

    Network services is not required for YouTube .. Your screen looks right. Have you checked the parental settings? Some have reported that web content is blocked.

    YouTube functionality is working well for me. I'm curious if the "quality" of the stream is completely dependent on my Internet connection? i.e. does the DVR just pass on the stream? With Native On I noticed an HD YouTube video drop to 720 x 480 pixels on my TV.
