Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

Not sure why, but tonight a lot of the NBC shows won't play, they try to start and then either just return to the menu or reboot the Roku. They fail immediately - nothing is ever displayed. I tried both the new Pod TV channel and the "old" separate channel. Same results for both. I did notice that they return to the menu under the 'old' separate channels and reboot the Roku under the new Pod TV channel. (In further tests, the Pod TV also just returned to the menu vs rebooting, so maybe no diff?)

I also tried watching the new NASA feeds. The SD feeds played OK, but did rebuffer once or twice. The HD feed also played OK. It rebuffered more frequently It took longer to start and rebuffer, of course. So the SD feeds were more watchable for me.

Thanks and keep up the good work! Smiley Wink

That's odd. I watched the first few min of Countdown tonight with no issues.

FYI... For you music lovers, I've added a few items to the Archive.org section. Live Music Archives of Blues Traveler, John Mayer, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Gourds.

I'm also having trouble with NBC. Specifically Meet the Press and Nightly News. They get to about 14 minutes and then start to constantly re-buffer.

Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

NWM: Wanted to put in a plug for adding a "live" (OK, it is time shifted 60+ years <grin>) OTR feed that our family greatly enjoys. Would be very convenient if this could be added to your channel.

Thanks.

Re: A Couple New Channels with More to Come

I've been trying to add PodTV(I love the clutter free all in one model!) It shows up under "My Channels", but when I select "go to channel" it shows for a moment then disappears and defaults back to the channel store icon. Any suggestions? Do I need to remove the individual channels first?

Which date? Were they the 3-10 shows? I tried them shortly after midnight. Then 3-9 shows played fine for me.
