Frankly, I can't see cookies and DNS as being connected.
Yeah, but that's the point - such impressions are highly subjective. No harm in giving it a try, but it is rather like striking a match and expecting the streetlamp across the road to light up just because somebody observed that to happen.the suggestion it has worked for others
No, nor do I, but the DNS change in my router was suggested and appeared to solve the problem as I had changed nothing else.Frankly, I can't see cookies and DNS as being connected.
There are a number of people here who have reported a permanent improvement in the historic EPG and usage of the players after changing the DNS. I originally suggested the change because I was puzzled that so many people were coming here and reporting problems which I had never experienced. DNS seemed the most likely candidate. My suspicion is that when the DNS on the Humax is set to the router then there can be problems when using some common models of router.That could explain why clearing cookies makes a difference, and why changing DNS makes a difference (although I would not expect either to be more than temporary).
What do we know? 1) I sometimes loose the players from display 2) Catchup EPG data sometimes displays no information. 3) Deleting 'cookies' which may include other stuff fixes - at least for a while.Sounds plausible, but again - how would changing DNS improve the situation?
I was theorising that catchup EPG falls into the Cookie+ category - not cookies, but is possibly deleted when you say to say to delete cookies - no doubt if they were to say 'delete cookies, cache etc. etc.) it'd raise more questions than needed, just tell the average user they are cleaning something up using a term they may understand.I don't know but it remains true for some users that changing DNS stops the need to clear cookies. Until we know what information is stored in the cookies I don't think we can go any further.
