Have you tried un-installing and then reinstalling Silverlight? If so, are you still getting a Error 1001?

 

Go here for step-by-step instructions for reinstalling Silverlight:

Re: Error 1001

Yes.  Uninstalled and reinstalled several times.  I even tried to find an older version but it told me to upgrade so I reinstalled Silverlight.  I've emptied my browser cashe.

Try using Firefox or Safari web browsers and then try watching videos again. This is not a permanent solution but it will help us narrow down your issue.

I am sorry but 64-bit browsers are not fully compatible. Please use the 32-bit version of Firefox and try again.

Try deleting your cookies and cache in Firefox and then try again.

 

Also, make sure that you add xfinitytv.com as an exception through your firewall.

There is no official version of Firefox available in 64-bit from Mozilla. You can download the 32-bit version here:

 

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new

 

Avant is not a fully compatible browser but what happened when you tried it?

Re: Error 1001

I have been getting the same problem.  I have reinstalled silverlight several times, reinstalled chrome, IE and firefox and still getting the same problem.  Has anyone found a real solution to this because comcast help's suggestions have gotten me nowhere and I am really started to become frustrated.

Make sure you have added Xfinitytv.com and Xfinity.com as trusted sites.

 

Also, delete all files and settings stored by add-ons and then try again.

Error 1001

Using Win7, 32bit IE, with latest version of flash and silverlight.

 

I keep getting error 1001 when I try to play movies. Per the help notes, I have un-installed and re-installed silverlight at least 10 times and have not been able to get past this error message.

 

Any ideas?

Thks..

Re: Error 1001

see this thread for more ideas.  That error seems to be a silverlight error or a firewall error.  When you uninstalled silverlight did you clear your cookies and cache and then resinstall?  There are instructions in that thread how to do it the correct way.  Also try disabling your antivirus and firewall and then try it.  There are so many different things that can cause this it hard to say with millions of different people having hundreds of millions of programs on pc's.  Also trying a different browser cant hurt.
