Re: Attempting to resume

Hi @vkphill

 

Thank you for using the Xfinity Forums. We apologize for the experience you're having while trying to stream. Let's take a deeper look into this to see if we can find the cause.  

 

What type of laptop or PC are you using? Are you connected to your in-home WiFi network when this happens? Have you recently upgraded or swapped your modem?

Re: Attempting to resume

Thanks for confirming @RITOMKO. Are you receiving any specific error messages? Can you provide a screenshot? Is this affecting all channels? If not, can you please provide a few examples of different networks that are affected?

Re: Attempting to resume

I'm having the same problem...happens on all channels and also recorded shows on DVR.. watching on an Asus laptop with wifi... doesn't happen on Netflix, Youtube or any other video, just Xfinity.  Also does not happen on my Samsung smartphone on home wifi...

For the past two weeks I have not been able to stream anything to my Windows 7 SP1 PC with lots of memory, etc. It just happened overnight - I woke up one morning and it was no longer working. I've had the issue in the past, and logging off, deleting cookies and history, etc. always worked. Not this time. I cannot watch liveTV or stream anything from the DVR, although I can successfully do both those things on my tablet and phone, from this LAN.

 

But on my PC, I can log onto the site, and usually I see icons for the channels and shows. Not now. There is an "Establishing secure connection" message in the lower left of Chrome (screenshots to follow). This does not work either in Firefox ("Performing a TLS handshake to polaris.xfinity.com" in lower left does not go away). Something is trying to connect but is not happening.

 

I read a post here about this behavior starting with the Chrome upgrade to v78, so I downgraded to the "non-automatic-update" version of 77, but I get the same results. Java is enabled in both browsers as required.

 

I've got logs for when I authenticate to the site, as well as when I try to start liveTV or play something from the DVR. There are lots of warnings, but many timeout errors. Here are a couple examples when logging in. I've got the entire logs if it would help for me to email them to you.

Notice in the TV listings and the DVR listings there are no icons for the shows. This was my first indication that something was wrong, and is also manifest in the errors logs with the timeouts. Maybe this helps narrow it down.

 

Please let me know what other information you need from me to solve this issue. I have no television set and like it that way. I prefer streaming but cannot get liveTV or DVR on my computer. Please help. Thank you!2019-10-30_1122_dvr_diags_1.png2019-10-30_1123_dvr_diags_2.png2019-10-30_1107_establishing_secure_connection.png2019-10-30_1123_dvr_no_icon.png

Re: Attempting to resume

I keep getting "attempting to resume" and "It looks like you're offline" on my imac with intel i7 chip.  Happening last two weeks.  No significant software upgrade in that period.  Comcast was out recently to check all my connections and to upgrade some connectors.  That is not the problem.  Streaming works simultaneously on the iphone x but not the imac.  The TV in the living room works.  It's just on the imac computer.  Rebooting the computer does not change the result.  There is NO problem with the internet connection (as evidenced by my sending this on the same imac).  This is a comcast issue.

Now that Comcast streaming has eliminated the requirement for Flash, all my streaming capabilities are now working again. So if you haven't tried it recently, give it a go.
