Unable to play videos - error 6036 TV shows work fine.

Does anyone have a solution for error 6036. Cant play movies off premium channles. I am current on my bill and have a subscription to all.

TV shows work just fine.

PC had some microsoft updates last week. Thats the only thing I can think of that has changed.

I have tried firefox, chrome....all the same results.

Clear internet history.

uninstalled and reinstalled silverlight....no luck

installed and tried firefox..no luck

installed and tried Chrome...no luck.

 

Other ideas? Seems like a few more people are starting to have this problem as well.

Re: Unable to play videos - error 6036 TV shows work fine.

cinemax "man of fire" doesnt work.

tried HBO, Starz, and Encore...none of them work. Bill is current and Im a subsrcriper to all.

No problem watching them on my home tv.

 

All tv shows ive tried work..from Law and order to CSI to Butterfly affect.

Its odd that TV shows work and movies dont.

yep box is checked..still not working.

Is there a way to use an older version of silverlight? maybe an update in the past week has made the difference. Movies played fine 2 weeks ago.

Re: This is so ridiculous -- you guys are terrible... Error 6036

ALSO -- it is not always us with device driver issues, etc--- it is more than likey you and your changes that are not managed correctly...

 

Why not modify your error pages to return valuable information instead of posting here and wasting a day of life looking for your information that you post in random locations -- usually incorrect information at that...

Re: Unable to play videos - error 6036 TV shows work fine.

Hi all,

 

We recently have seen an increase in Error 6036 when trying to play a video. If you are trying to watch a video from your PC or Mac and you are receiving this error message, try uninstalling then re-installing Microsoft Silverlight. Go here for step-by-step instructions:

 

http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/help/technical-support/xfinity-tv-player/#silverlight-reinstall

 

If you followed the steps above and you are receiving the same error message, you must install an update for your video driver. Here is how to do it:

 

Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7:


  1. Click the "Start" button and then click the "Control Panel" option.

2.  Click "Hardware and Sound" from the menu.

 

3.  Click on the "Device Manager" icon from the menu.

 

4.  Click on your graphics card icon from the menu on the left side of the Device Manager window.

 

5.  Click the "Drivers" tab at the top of the window that appears. The window should have a prompt saying "The drivers for this device are up to date."

 

6.  Click the "Update Driver" icon on the window if the drivers are out of date. Wait for the drivers to install on the system.

 

7.  Click the "Restart" button when prompted. When the computer restarts, the drivers will be up to date.

 

 

Mac OS X:


  1. Click the Apple logo.

 2. On the "Apple" menu, click "Software Update."

 

3.   If there is a Mac OS X update available, you can install it. If there is a graphics driver update, it will be included in the Mac OS X update.

 

 

Please let me know of your results or if you are still having issues.

 

Thanks,
Joe

"I have tried all major browsers... reinstalled silverlight... checked drivers... still have had no luck... the problem does not appear to be on the client end... its also not private mode or incognito mode [if you have that ability in your browser]... its almost as if your site is timing out...

Billy787,

 

Go to this link for more detailed instructions for Windows Vista:

 

http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/graphics/updatevista.html

 

boristheblade/cmhernandez03/BorisAirWolf, you all have updated or have to most up to date graphics card drivers installed and videos still are not working. What is your graphics card? What driver version is installed? Any additional details would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Re: error 6036

Joe: 

 

I am not going to give you that information. 

 

I have seen other users give you that exact information. 

 

WHERE YOU HAVE TOLD THEM TO EITHER INSTALL SILVERLIGHT.. update their driver... AND THAT DOES NOT WORK FOR THEM. It has clearly not worked for them for either 4 days .. or even 7 days!

 

You need to fix whatever it us on your end. 

 

This is not a user error.
