I just activated a HR34 Thursday and apps took almost 2 days to start working and youbube took 3 days before it worked. Other boxes usually only take around 24 but this one takes longer so just give it time.
I agree that it may be pointless, but here's "all the numbers":Davenlr said:I dont think STB services port has anything to do with TV APPS not loading.
The speed of your router also has nothing to do with it.
If you want to rule out the router, just assign the DVRs a IP address outside of your DHCP range set by the routers setup screen, then use the DMZ feature of the router to assign that IP address to the DMZ. If it works, then its the router settings. If it still doesnt work, its either the DVR software or the TV APPS server is just down or unreachable.
For what its worth, if you want everything neat and clean, you can manually assign two of those STB services ports (for each DVR), and then use the port forwarding section of your router to port forward traffic for those two ports to the IP address you gave that DVR. That will get it working (or at least not give you an error), but doubt that is the issue.
It also takes up to 48 hours on a new box connected to the internet, for it to download and install all the added features, and it will sometimes reboot itself when done. I would give it at least 48 hours to see what happens.
Yea, he is doing the same thing I am, except I assign a separate pair of ports for each DVR, and he used 1701 for all of them, if I read that right.veryoldschool said:I agree that it may be pointless, but here's "all the numbers":
Would Earl be a good enough source?Davenlr said:As for whether network services ports affect TV Apps, I with someone with DirecTv would once and for all put out some info on them.
Well, since he wrote it, I guess he would know...but if it uses some of the code, and the code is on the DVR, but doesnt use network service, yet it seems they need to be working for the code to work..... I guess I would read that as you need to have them working for TV Apps to work.veryoldschool said:Would Earl be a good enough source?
"He says" TVApps use some of the code of the network services, but not network services.
301 is a show stopper here, and normally clears on its own over time.
202 is a working error here [everything set with defaults].
Since mine work here with a 202 error, it isn't quite "my take" that they need to be working for TVApps to be.Davenlr said:Well, since he wrote it, I guess he would know...but if it uses some of the code, and the code is on the DVR, but doesnt use network service, yet it seems they need to be working for the code to work.....

Is that your take?
Sometimes I thing the DirecTv Employees on here are the Nostradamus' of the 21st century. Everything is cryptic
