I was able to get to the comcast/infinity log-in screen (and clicked remember me), and into the main HBO Go page, but once I try to select a movie, it seems to hang. One time it did get past the circling icon, but it asked me to log in. And doesn't let me get past this point.

    Oh, and btw, my TP is stock, with the latest OS version.

    The movie looks great on the TP, sounds great (I usually use my Monster blue tooth speaker when I watch on my phone... no need with the TP's own speakers).
    I am having the same issue :/

    How did you fix yours? Here's a video on what the problem is



    I tried resetting, deleting cookies and cache, turning it on and off but nothing. I've had my touchpad for 2 weeks now and scrolling thru hbogo never worked :|

    I just doctored my tp, so before adding in all the preware stuff and patches, thought I would try hbogo again. This time I had a little more success.

    My problem has been that I keep getting bumped out of hbogo. The site does not retain my sign in status, so I am required to go back to the Comcast xfinity sign in page again to use hbogo. This still happens, but not as much.

    This time I checked off the "remember me" box when signing into Comcast's x-finity login page. I'm not sure if this helped or not.
    In hbogo I still got bumped out when trying to play a specific Big Love series episode, but after logging back in to xfinity again for the second time, this automatically returned me to hbogo and loaded the episode I chose and let me watch it.

    I've got a wireless G router, but have an N router on order to see if it helps. Not sure if the delay time in loading hbogo selections have something to do with getting bumped out.

    I changed my DNS server from the Comcast defaults to 8.8.8.8 and 199.45.32.38, on both my router and under the touchpad's wireless settings. This makes browsing a little more responsive for me. You can find your optimum dns servers here

    Sorry to be slow to reply, but to be very honest, I don't really know what I did different to make it work the next time I tried. And... yesterday when I tried again, it didn't work. Seems one of the vagueries (and frustrations) with TouchPad is that lack of consistency in user experience. I had hoped that by saving my user login and bookmarking I would be able to jump right in... but no, it hangs whenever I try browsing to hbogo it just hangs (hbo-no go). And while I would really prefer to be able to watch movies on my 10 inch tablet than my 4" phone screen the dedicated app and consistent interface of my Android phone makes me less apt to wrestle with the TP. It would be great if the TP had an app but I doubt HBO will put much effort into making one.

    I just had to clear my cache and cookies and reset the TP for another prob (Youtubes not playing) so I will see if that made a difference on the HBO Go prob.

    ... and today, it works. And, went right to where I stopped watching a movie. Weird, but at least it is inconsistent to my benefit.

    I have Comcast cable at home, when I use HBO Go in the dorm, it works okay, but I can't figure out how to make it remember whenre I stopped the video previously. My roommate has no problem getting it to work on her laptop. Unfortunately, the speed in our doorm room ethernet connection is slow during the evening, so it's not a big deal. I'm using it with a travel mini wifi router. Sometimes it's as bad as 30 Kb/s, making HBO Go videos very blurry or not play at all.

    I didn't change any settings or anything, it just suddenly stopped being able to access the site...
