TV box (and apps) not updating - can’t connect with servers.

Regular Visitor

TV box (and apps) not updating - can’t connect with servers.

Two of five boxes in my house have a full range of apps to choose from. The three that don’t, I can only see the Youtube and the Netflix apps. In order to use them, the TV box needs updating.  When I attempt to do so, I receive an error that there is an issue connecting to the server.  Rebooting and refreshing have not helped.  Coincidentally, the two boxes that work are newer boxes.

I escalated you up to a colleague who can get you the necessary new boxes.

Re: TV box (and apps) not updating - can’t connect with servers.

adding... all set top boxes except fot the rng150 have the 'internet' apps (and voice control and aim-anywhere remotes). if your TV ONLY accepts component video cables and NOT HDMI cables, then the rng150 (companion set top box - not a DVR) or the XG1v1 (DVR first version) have that capability. Do you have need of the component cable hookups? how many DVRs and how many other set top boxes do you have now? model numbers help as we customers can't see what is on your account.
