Has anyone been able to run Dish anywhere in Linux?
If so which version of Linux and what did you have to do to make it happen.

I can bring up the website but can't access any content live or DVR. I get a not compatible message.

I think it depends more on the browser than OS. Are you using Chrome?

Not sure how it works on other platforms, but on the Mac and Windows(I think), you need a DISHAnywherePlayer app to actually view content, live or recorded. Since there is no app for Linux that I know of, I am unsure how this would work. I guess you could try getting a Windows App to work in Wine, but I have no experience with that.

I got a message about a new DISHAnywherPlayer app, but it went away before I could click on the link.

Edit: after several retries, I finally got the new player downloaded. Seems to be working fine.

If you don't mind could you tell me what version of the player app you're using. Mine is doing some weird stuff and isn't working. The player starts and then the screen gets very dark and stays stuck on 'Loading Video Player'.

I tried to get an update screen but was not successful so I uninstalled it and got the prompt to download, which I did. I installed what downloaded V 2.1.6.429 which did the same thing. So I uninstalled again and then when I selected Watch Live TV I got a Windows message to look for the app in the Windows Store, which doesn't have any Dish apps available. So I re-installed the player file I downloaded earlier today and it still doesn't work. Tried Firefox and IE and it does the same thing. The last time I checked a few weeks ago it worked fine. Glad I don't rely on it. :)

EDIT....HAHHA, it started working right after I posted this!

I am at 1.1.6.427 on the Mac. It always worked for me on my laptop without issue today. Can't say the same for my FireStick.

I kill it after every try and it's still not working. But thanks for the tip. I'll try it again later and let you know.
