    DM800HD Dreambox WebControl WebTV not working

    Hi guys, think im having one of the dumb moments......

    im sure in the past i just connected to my dm on my laptop, clicked on webtv nd hey presto, watched the current channel on my laptop. Thing is it just doesnt work anymore??

    I must be doing something really stupid but it just wont work for me.

    can connect ok, change channels etc from laptop but when i click on webtv it opens up another window but doesnt play anything. it has a little icon showing in the pop out window. Looks like i might need a pluging or something?

    am running windows 7 & ie9

    any thoughts???

    cheers

    Steve..

    Cheers for the quick reply.....

    have installed latest firefox & latest vlc (ticked full install + mozila plugin) also latest adobe flash.

    connect to web interface no probs (192.168.1.*) enter my dm user & password. everything shows up fine. click on webtv, another window opens up & shows webtv at the top. the rest of the window is white (blank)

    im sure i had this working a while back but i have done a fresh install on my laptop since then.

    read that i might have to use an earlier version of vlc??

    cheers

    Nice 1 JTH!

    works a treat clicking on the little tv icon & opens up in vlc.........

    thought it would b something simple......

    Think i'll try this out on my Asus eeepad Transformer aswell. Not sure if you can run vlc on honeycomb?

    cheers & going to add you some nice rep now......
