Getting some errors trying to view HGTV and DIY network.

[ERR] Could not start stream for TVE-Philo ch6108 DIY: TVE: 403 Forbidden: Access to the requested resource path has been forbidden: [Authorized Networks: ].
[ERR] Could not start stream for TVE-Philo ch6104 HGTV: TVE: 403 Forbidden: Access to the requested resource path has been forbidden: [Authorized Networks: ].

I tried a rescan and the channel count went up, but DIY/6104 and HGTV/6108 are now gone.
What gives?

Ok so I had only done a full rescan of the Philo source. I went in and edited the source, then clicked edit and rescanned only the problem channels and they came back.

I wonder if Channels could interpret this error code as needing a channel rescan and do this automatically?

So I setup TvEverywhere today with Philo and also using an hdhomerun connect quatro. After taking a look, it seems that my channel lineup from Philo is a little strange. I spot checked and got a lot of them, but there are some missing and also some channels that appear in the tveverywhere source that I do not subscribe to. Any ideas?

I get, abcnews, cbsnews, aljazere, some ricky and morty channel, qvc, channels, and a few others that are not part of philo.

I am missing Nick, all but one MTV, Lifetime, and a few others.

Thanks,
Ron

Ahhh, I didn’t see that. Thanks!

I currently am getting 73 channels through Philo. The Extras are a bit curious...I understand hallmark having two channels, but some are not even offered by Philo.... Any idea why they come in? Not complaining..... More is better!

As long as you have at least one TVE provider setup, you will also have access to a bunch of TVE channels that do not require a login, such as NBCNEWS, CBSNEWS, CBSSPORTSHQ, etc. It doesn't matter which TVE provider you use, Channels DVR gives you access to them once you setup that first TVE provider.
