Re: Optimum App for Laptop

Used the app 4 hours over the past week, including 1 hr with the new version and haven't seen it yet. Do you have any video editing apps, or other capture tools running?

I did have CamStudio installed (but not running) from the other post with video I made. I've uninstalled it. We'll see if that does anything. Thanks!

This all seems pretty stable on Mac so far. HD looks great.

The function I REALLY want is to be able to watch what is recorded on my DVR. I can never see the Walking Dead episodes for weeks on end because I don't want the kids to see it and the DVR is in our family room!

Edit: Other issues include - no save of default settings and ability to filter more than one selection (i.e., HD AND only subscribed channels)

Edit 2: Need ability to save to a favorites list, and also a quick scroll or easy way to get to a certain channel in the list.

A new version was uploaded yesterday.

Thanks for the update link.

This version works much smoother on my ACER Aspire one ZG5 Netbook... Once the buffering algorithm stabilizes, there is very little stuttering using my Wireless-G connection.

Anyone else's app stop working?

I could not tune in to any channel, so I uninstalled and reinstalled.

Now when I try to login, I get an empty Terms and Conditions window that can't be accepted.

stopped working for me too for the same reason. the new version seems to delete old folders yet not replace them with newer ones. i do have it working though, by pasting the old data from a backup ontop of the new install. you might try editing the xml file in the documents folder. i tried and failed but really know nothing about that kind of stuff.

I just tried it this morning and it's working fine. I'm on a Mac.

Thanks, unfortunately, I don't have a backup.... I guess I will do some searching!

NEVER MIND...

I manually updated to Silverlight 5 and changed the optimum app icon to open the 64-bit version of silverlight instead.

(I changed the target from "Program Files (x86)" to "Program Files")

CPU is now 10-20% when running video!

Can anyone help me figure out how to "manually update to Silverlight 5"? My laptop is getting killed! Running Win7 x64, 2GHz P6100, 4GB RAM

NOTHING justifies terrorism. We don't negotiate with terrorists. Those that support terrorists are terrorists.

Downloading from that page installed the 32 bit version by default for me, I had to go to »www.silverlight.net/downloads and explicitly download/install the 64-bit version.

That's the kind of information I was looking for so I'm passing it along in case anyone else faces a similar issue.
