XRE 03121

XRE 03121

After years of high quality Xfinity TV and subscribing to the sports entertainment package, all of a sudden the Big Ten network stopped working. Called multiple times to support with no luck they can just keep trying system refreshes.

The error message is XRE 03121. Attached is a screenshot. Every other channel works. They confirmed I am subscribed to to and I can still access it on the stream app?

Any ideas before we get to Saturday B10 football?

Re: XRE 03121

Are you still seeing this message?  I checked your account and looks like your authorized in the backend for the Big Ten Network.   And your not seeing this message on other Sports Entertainment Channels - like RedZone?

Re: XRE 03121

Thanks Chad,

It’s only the big ten network. All other channels in the package work. Red zone etc.

Re: XRE 03121

Yes. I am still getting the message on all of my boxes.

Re: XRE 03121

Thanks to you both. Any update on if it’s a delayed entitlement issue? Should I try and exchange my main DVR box ?

Re: XRE 03121

No swapping your box won’t fix this - no update yet.

Can you try one more thing? From your main box in the house- run a system refresh from the help menu.

I ended up here after Google the same error code. I am seeing this on my HBO channels. Is there a fix for this? I am paying extra money for these channels that I have not been able to watch for a few days now.

Re: XRE 03121

I'm have been hitting this problem:  "Sorry there seems to be a problem here XRE-03121" -  all of last night and today. I can't get to any channels. I've restarted the TV and the Cable/DVR and still the same problem. 

 

I thought there might have been an auto-systems upgrade last night and  if so, that it might be fixed today. It does not seem to be a problem with the broadband internet interface or modem as I am on the network. Wondering if the HDMI/TV signals from TV networks via Xfinity are out of sync somehow with possibly any new Cable/DVR software(?)

Any luck with my account? I am paying for the sports package and missed my college football game today. Big 10 network is one of the only channels I watch. Please advise.
Frequent Visitor

Re: XRE 03121

Yes. The problem persists. Several of the big ten network overflow channels display the initial error. The main channel and others display that I need a subscription. And my stream access is now gone. Somehow the big ten network entitlement is not coming through with the sports package.

Re: XRE 03121

@Spidur can you try once more? It should be resolved at this time, we had some issues that could have cause this problem for you. If it's still happening you might need to power-cycle your equipment once more. 


@smadden for some reason I am not showing that you have HBO, I would recomend creating a separate thread with more details as your issue might not be related to what others are reporting here and could potentially be a packaging problem. 

 

@faranjane I noticed an error from our end and just made a correction, can you try accessing HBO once more? 

 

@TSNGA and Frankosh can you both retry as well? Should be resolved at this time. 

@benjbz I tried refreshing your entitlements, but without specific details I am not sure if this was able to help you. 

 

The refresh is something that you should be also able to do from your end. To do a refresh yourself you can follow these steps.

Re: XRE 03121

I've just started to get this error with a bunch of channels, but only on 1 set top box. I tried restarting the device numerous times and even a system refresh (which just tells me to check for outages - there are none).
Administrator

Re: XRE 03121

@JHogan59 if it is just a single box, there is a chance that the signal levels to that device might be lower and as a result the authorization might not be going through properly. Try unplugging the box once more from the power, but this time also remove the coax from the back, screw it back on and try to plug it again to the power. That should do the trick, let us know if that is able to solve it.
