PTVB Can't Connect to get Listings

Post by radrick » Thu Jan 01, 2009 1:24 am

I have been using PTVB on Palm for a few years now and suddenly I am unable to get any listings. I can't seem to connect to SD. Has there been a URL change?
This has just started withing the last couple of weeks. My last download expired Dec. 31st.

PTVB use XMLTV to collect the listings

Have you cleared the cache via the Performance Tab of PTV Manager? maybe you aren't able to download if the cache is full, and it is not a connection problem, but an overload?

Try posting your same help request on a forum devoted to PTVB and XMLTV for Palm. Also that question may have been covered on the forum over there. Lots of people using the same operating system and same apps gives you a better chance for an answer or to discover a previous post that helps you now. Follow the link:

Yes, I have cleared the cache and even re-installed the application - same result.

Is there anybody else using PTV Browser on the Palm platform that has it working correctly?

I tried the Doublebit Forum and tried sending a message to Doublebit Support, but have not received any response.

TIA

Problem solved. Mine was unusual - it seems my hard drive was going bad and that created the problem. After replacing the drive and restoring an image where PTV browser was working, I am "back in business" and very happy. I had given up on using the program and was really missing it.
