I just picked up PBO Core and got everything up and running except for IMS. The unit is running on stock firmware (bootcode 27 and firmware P61). I have not updated to the latest P70 firmware. Streaming from my win7 box via lan wired connection and USB are working great. I can also see the venus share from win7 box. I do not have a hard drive in the unit.
When I go into the IMS menu and drill down to any one of the items in eg. Video News, Video Podcast or espn radio, I always get this confirm feed url dialog. Then I press enter. I see the round loading icon in bottom left corner appearing for a few seconds and then going away. I assume I should get the feed playing at this point. The thumbnail icon beside each feed item is also grey. I assume this means it's not working.
Can someone help me track down what the problem is? Do I need a hard drive in there for IMS to work? My DNS server is set to 18.104.22.168.
