Error message a300800a

I usually watch tv on my toshiba computer with Vista home premium but tonight when I clicked on the icon I get the error messageFailed To Start Preview with details expressing the error message a300800a
I just downloaded REALPLAYER. Could that have some connection because I got a message that Internet Explorer was no longer my default
and do I want to make it so. I said yes and now it is back to normal itself.

TV switch to live tive when wtaching recorded program

Hi there anil! My name is Kimberly and I form part of the Social Media Department with DISH, It is my pleasure to assist you. When watching an already recorded event and having a timer set up to record it should not interrupt your viewing of that DVR event. When this happened, did you get an error message on the screen? And has this happened again? Please reach me at: with the details.

Error message SRM-8012

That is generally a network busy error. Meaning the on demand server is handling too many request at that time. Most often on Fri and Sat nights. However if you get that error all the time it could be a signal problem in your home or even a faulty set top box.

I cant watch tv because i have a receiver identification problem and i need help... i have'nt watched tv in 3 days

That error is usually caused from switching an access card from one reciever to another, if that is not the case then you will have to call directv for them to send a new authorization

There was an err by clicking the icon it shows the message as errorcode#E0601009


Are you still experiencing the error message on your receiver. If you are, is the message indicating a phone line error? If that is the message you are receiving, you can run a phone line test on your receiver to make sure you are getting dial tone to the receiver.

Press the menu button on the remote. On the main menu, press 6, 3. This takes you to the diagnostics screen. In the upper right hand corner is a button, "Connection". Press select once the button is highlighted. This will initiate a connection test. Once the test is completed, a message will show either "failed" or "passed". If it fails check your phone jack for dial tone and then the phone cord from the phone jack to the receiver box.

I hope this helps. If you need more assistance, please post to this site.
