Bump. By way of additional info, I have shut off DVR service, pulled the DVR Win 10 computer from the network, set up a new Win 10 computer as DVR. I also got the same error.

I hope that helps. Do I need to subscribe? I have been on BETA, working well, for quite some time now! I'm cool with it, it usually works very well. But for now, I have no TVs in the house. Yikes.


Thanks.

To narrow a few things down, could you try this from a different device, maybe your phone or something? Also, try turning Early access to new features on and off and see if either setting helps.

edit: Also, when you set up the new Win10 DVR, did you download the newest version from the download page? https://www.silicondust.com/support/downloads/

APPEARS TO BE FIXED!

Hi, Nate. Thanks very much. I have tried access on three other Windows 10 computers, other than the "DVR" computer, same issue, wouldn't load and with the error. My Android phone would no longer work (blank screen). I did download latest version from download page and not corrected.

What appears to have worked to correct the issue was rebooting my router??? Thank you!

I had the same issue today... rebooting my modem fixed it.

I don't think there's anything we did to fix this. And I'm not really sure why rebooting a modem/router would help. But I guess if it's working again, yay!

Now who said anything about a modern router! Ha ha. I think it is about six or seven years old? Works okay. FIOS. I was thinking of installing an AC in it's place. Not sure how tough a job.

Oh well. Back in business!
