Hulu + Live TV = Cable provider authentication failed

Been trying to add my Hulu + Live TV as a source in the DVR for a couple days now. Every time I get "Cable provider authentication failed". User/Pass is definitely correct and I can login to the Hulu apps and website just fine. I think it has something to do with the captcha...

I'm able to successfully complete the captcha and get the green check mark for "I am not a robot", then the spinner turns in the bottom right for 30 seconds or so, then I get the error shown above..."Verification expired. Check the checkbox again."

EDIT: DVR is running on TrueNAS 12.0U4 (FreeBSD 12.2) using the official TrueNAS plugin. Chromium version 90.0.4430.212

I don't have Hulu as a provider, but searching the forum gives a few things to try.

Update to the latest DVR pre-release version

Try logging in to using your Hulu credentials first

Use a different browser when adding the Hulu source

Make sure you click the LOG IN button after solving the captchas

If none of that helps, submit diagnostics from the DVR web UI after it fails.

All good suggestions, and unfortunately, all things I’ve already tried.

Aman replied to my email to support and said my submitted diagnostics all look normal, and that maybe it isn’t compatible with FreeBSD anymore.

Anyone else using Hulu TVE on FreeBSD / FreeNAS / TrueNAS?

I'm having exactly the same problem and, for me, Channels is running on Windows 10. My error logs look pretty much like yours. I've also tried all of the suggestions mentioned by chDVRuser, with no luck.

Interesting that the problem is now happening on Windows. Just to verify, are you seeing the exact same captcha error shown above? ..."Verification expired. Check the checkbox again."

If you haven't done so already, please submit diagnostics and email the number to [email protected] so that the devs are aware.
