4. I have a login problem, or system shows that I don't have a valid subscription even though I do, what should I do??

A.If you are experiencing login problems in our new system, this could be caused by one of these 2 problems.

Problem 1. Your are entering wrong username or password.
Problem 2. You don't have a valid subscription.
Problem 3. If you are sure that you have an active subscription and you can login to your account, but when you click on button Launch Player you keep getting the login page (even though you entered correct username and password) or you get a message you don't have a valid subscription, its most likely that you have your cookies disabled.

Solution to problem 1:
1) Make sure you are entering correct username and password (if you can login by clicking on button "My Account" or you are not being asked to login, that means that information you are entering is correct, therefore continue with the solution to problem 2, described bellow) If however you can't login, remember that username and password are cAsE sensitive, so make sure you enter them exactly as when you registered. If you forgot your username or password you can change it to something new. Passwords are encoded, therefore cannot be sent through email, you may only change it to a new one (registered email must be valid). To do that simply click here http://www.tvpolonia.com/ab/?_page=account:password&lid=english&tid=english enter your username or registered email address and click "Submit". After that check your email right away and read the instructions included in the email. There will be a link there on which you must click on within 15 minutes to change your password (for security reasons this link will not work after 15 minutes, if you are late you must simply repeat this procedure from the beginning to receive new email with new link). After clicking on the link you will be able to enter a new password for your account. After you have changed your password, from main page http://www.tvpolonia.com/en/ simply click on "Launch Player" and enter your username and new password to login. If you are still unable to do so, please read solution #2 bellow.


Solution to problem 2:
From main page http://www.tvpolonia.com/en/ click on the button "My Account" after which in section "Account Login" enter your username and password to login. After successful login look in section "Downloads" on the right side, there should be a link there called "Plan Launch Player", which means that you have a valid active subscription. If however instead that link you see a message "Your account is currently not authorized for any of our protected areas." this means that you don't have a valid subscription. This could have been cause because subscription expired, or we were unable to charge your credit card to renew it. To fix this problem simply click on "Subscriptions" under "Our products" on the left side of the page, and order a new subscription. After successful payment you will have instant access. Simply form main page http://www.tvpolonia.com/en/ click on "Launch Player" and login with your username and password.

Solution to problem 3
a) Open Internet Explorer
b) Click on Tools>Internet Options> select Privacy
c) Choose "Medium", click on "Apply and "OK".
d) Now you should be able to open the player, just click on button Launch Player from main page.
e) If you still have a problem, that means that you use some other firewall or privacy software that might be causing this problem, please disable it and try again. If it helped change your setting on your security software so that it does not block access to our page.

5) When I choose a program I only get a READY message in the player, and nothing happens.

First of all click on "Update links" button in the player, and make sure you are using Internet Explorer. If that didn't solve the problem that means there are some other problems with your connection or Windows Media Player. Please continue bellow.

A. Some cable and DSL modems that use Network Address Translation (NAT) cause errors passing through UDP packets and that might be causing the problem.
To fix this do the following:
a) Open the latest version of Windows Media Player that you have installed (WMP 9, 10, 11 or 12).
In Windows XP you can do that by clicking on Start/All Programs/Windows Media Player, OR Start/All Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Windows Media Player.
In Windows Vista or Windows 7 just type "Windows media player" in search after clicking on Start.
b) Next in Windows media player menu click on Tools>Options>Network
c) uncheck "RTSP/UDP" and "RTSP/TCP" leaving only "Multicast" and "HTTP" checked.
d) Click on "Apply" and "OK" and "OK"
e) Now close this Windows Media Player and open our TVPOLONIA Player and see if that helped.

If it didn't, then there might be some problem with your connection or connection somewhere in between your computer and our server. To check that please read question "Picture is freezing or stopping every so often, why is that?" there you will have instruction on how to do a connection test and how to send us the results so that we may investigate this problem even further..

If your connection is good, that means that there might be a problem with your Windows Media Player. We suggest that you download and reinstall the newest version of Windows Media Player.

If the problem still persists, try to remember what changes have you made on your computer before the problem first occurred. If you installed any new programs, try to uninstall them and then check if the problem is gone.

If you still have a problem and you are using Windows XP or ME, we suggest to do System Restore back to the time you didn't have any problems. Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time" and click on "Next", now choose a date when everything worked fine and then click "Next", after restart open tvpolonia player and try again.

If you still have a problem, probably there are some other conflicts or restrictions on your system that might be causing conflicts with WMP. If you are using some kind of security settings please make sure they are setup correctly.

If the problem still persists and after choosing a program ex. "Teleexpress", you still see "Ready" message, please then click on "Open in WMP". If you get a message " The specified protocol is not supported " it means there is a windows media player conflict on your computer. Please follow the instructions from this page http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940029,(we suggest method 3) which should completely eliminate the issue..

6. Picture is freezing or stopping every so often, why is that?

In majority of situations, the cause of bad reception are problems on the connection between your computer and our server. If suggestion above a) will not solve the problem please do a connection test explained bellow and send us the results.

Win98 open MS-DOS,

Win2000 or WinXP Start>Run> type cmd, open new window.

Type tracert vod.tvpolonia.com and press ENTER

This program will show you all places (servers) that your connection must travel through to get to our server. At the end in the window please right click and select option "Select all", this will highlight entire text and then please press "Enter" on your keyboard.

Then in email "paste" the text (CTRL+V on keyboard). Entire results of the test will be entered in the email, now send this email to pomoc@tvpolonia.com so that we may analyze the results.

Another cause of bad reception may also be your computer, which may simply be too slow. The minimum that we recommend is Pentium IV 2Ghz, 256MB RAM, 64MB Video Card, Internet Explorer 5.

We suggest that you perform regular updates to your system and do a regular defragmentation of the drive to keep your system in good and secure state..

If you are using Firefox or Chrome, you must install Windows media player plugin, click here If you know you installed this plugin and yet you still see a message "A plugin is needed..."

This problem occurs after the latest update to firefox 21, which doesn't read the plugin folder.

You can find more details and a solution to this problem on this page
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Windows_Media_Player#Missing_plugin
If you have installed the new WMP plugin and it is not detected, either set the preference plugins.load_appdir_plugins to true in about:config

In Firefox and Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey, type about:config in the Location Bar (address bar) and press Enter to display the list of preferences

We suggest not to change anything else in these preferences as it may cause some problems with your firefox.
Only change this line
plugins.load_appdir_plugins

"double click" to change to true.

Now restert your browser or computer and try again, all should work fine as before.

OR you can always use another browser such as Internet Explorer or Chrome, where you will not need to make any changes.
