Ok, had this working too.... but every so often I get an error message....

msisdn Not Available
The system is unable to display your request.
Please try later.


Now according to Vodafone, it's something to do with them and not the phone, which is a good start. But it could possibly be to do with the Firmware Version you are running as well, as they ask for your Firmware version number.

So please, if anyone else gets this problem, please ring Vodafone, 191, Option 3 then 2 and report and give them your version.

The more info they get, the quicker they can hopefully resolve it.

Thanks
Steve

It's now got worse!!!

Had this working great from the launch date, used it a few times.
The last use was on Sunday in the middle of Chippenham.

I've got full 3G coerage where I am, but I was getting the msisdn error message when I went in and and tried to play the chosen channel. This error message is apparently the network not recognising my number, although Vodafone say it is there!

I now get another message when I try to access the actual Mobile TV page.
The message is a timeout error, which I forgot to write down, and I also get a Partner 502 error.

Is anyone else on here on Vodafone and having successful connection?
If so, please let me know, and if possible let me know your firmware version in case it has anything to do with it.
Also, anyone having trouble, please let me know any error messages you get and I can report these to Vodafone too if they are different to mine and they may be able to nail this down!!

Thanks for your help.

I just checked out C4 & Sky Sports News - both are working fine. I'm in Central London...One thing I have noticed is that when I switch to full screen mode by pressing 2, I sometimes lose the picture completely. The only way to get it back is to disconnect and reconnect and by doing that I can start the video in full screen mode and it works fine.

Thanks for that.
I see your running the same firmware, so it can't be that.

Just tried myself again... 15 miutes after your posting, and I can now access the pages but when I try to connect, I get the msisdn not available error.....
which according to Voda, is just me not being recognised!!
I'm going to ring them again... if I keep badgering, they may decide to react to it!

Thanks again for your post!

Well, just got off the phone with Voda.
It would appear that they have been updating the "live" site which could have caused problems. (But I think not).

They have been through my settings in RealPlayer and they all seem fine.

However, there is one setting I wasn't happy with...
Big Favour, can someone go into Menu, Imaging, RealPlayer, Options, Settings, Connection.
Scroll to Network and open.

Default Access Point. Mine was set to Contract WAP.
Can someone confirm what theirs says they are connecting by?

Thanks

For Real Player, I always use my operator's Internet Access Point (IAP), never their WAP Access Point.

Interesting?

Well anyway, I've been back onto them as what they suggested didn't work.

It was all down to one small issue... the error message msisdn is quite simple...
It's Mobile Subscriber ISDN.
So if I connect to Vodafone live using the Voda GPRS ISP, it works fine, but as soon as I try to access the TV then it doesn't like it because the Mobile TV likes to use WAP.

So i have changed my connection to Voda Live to WAP and hey presto I get Mobile TV!!!

Now it wasn't my fault as that was what Voda recommended when they sent me the settings.

The only time (according to Voda now) to use the GPRS connection is when I want to access full sites on my phone... which to be honest, I didn't have a cle what he was on about.

If anyone cares to share their thoughts on the difference between WAP and GPRS and when to use them, please do, cos I'm sure I'm not the only thick on here!!!

Firstly you have to be n Vodafone....

If you are, connect to Vodafone Live in the normal way..... (with the button next to keypad 3)
Then scroll down to "Entertainment" and select.
Then scroll down to "Mobile TV" and select.
Then scroll down to any of the shown channels or scroll to "Full List" under one of the "packs". Choose your channel and enjoy!!!

ok, you beat me....

You need to be connecting through to Vodafone Live on "Vodafone WAP"

Check your settings on your connections.... if you are connecting via GPRS it won't work as the Mobile TV wants to use WAP

It's tempermental...

It worked fine last weekend in Norwich when I tried it, then today it wouldnt work. I turned my phone off and on and it started up again, but the picture was jumpy.

Why cant voda get their act together and give us something thats worth bothering about?!! Its a great idea and one that we'd all love to use if it was any good. Why launch a service that's half ready without testing it properly first. Its fine as long as you live in a city too... we dont all live in cities to get a 3g signal :(

I called voda and they said they are aware of problems that are mainly due to too many people trying to access the service...

GREAT!
