Playback issue 2111 error 3

I am getting “Playback issue 2111” with “error 3” on the bottom whenever I try to watch live TV for regular network programming on my Fire TV streaming app. 

I tried resetting the app, cleared the data and re-signed in and it’s still not working.

Hey @user_556c21! Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we definitely want to make sure this is resolved for you. Is this happening on all of the channels you watch or only some of them (please specify which networks if not all)? Are you getting errors when you try to watch this from another device like a cell phone, computer, or tablet?

Greetings, @user_22d4f9! Thanks so much for taking a moment out of your busy day to leave a post on our community forum. I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with your Fire TV, but you have definitely come to the right place for assistance. Did this just recently start happening, or is the Xfinity Stream app new on your device? Are you able to watch live TV on other devices, like a phone or tablet, without these issues?

I've been having the same error on my Insigna FireTV all week. Only the TV togo options are showing up they all lead back to the playback issue 2111 error 3. I'm able to watch on other devices without issues.

Hello, @user_51c819! Thank you for posting here on our forums. We want to ensure we get this error cleared so you can get back to enjoying your programs. Can you please attempt reconnecting your TV to the internet and ensure it has the latest firmware update installed? 

 

From the Fire TV menu, select Settings > Device > About. If you don't see a "Device" option, look for System and select that instead. Select Check for System Update to see if a software update is available for your device. After the download is complete, select Install System Update to install the update immediately.

 

If the issues persist after refreshing the internet connection and ensuring the TV is updated, please also uninstall the Xfinity app and reinstall it, then log back into the app. Please keep me posted if the error clears after this or not. Thank you!

Hello, @user_dbeb3a. Thank you for letting us know you are having similar issues as well. I know each situation can be different, but we've seen success since your post. Have you tried any troubleshooting steps so far? If possible, can you uninstall then reinstall the app? Please let me know if you see any improvement or if it stays the same. I'll be glad to help.

I had this issue with a Toshiba Fire TV. Restarted my TV and was able to watch shows again.
