  • WebTV etc.

    Hey all.

    Have a problem, wondering if there's a solution.

    First off, a couple of the members of my forums use WebTV, and say vB is not compatible with it. I'm not sure why, as I've never tried it on a webTV. Anyone know how to make it work with WebTV?

    Also, if you are familiar with yahoo groups, a few members would like to be able to reply to a subscribed thread via email, and have it post, so they don't have to go to the forums. Is this possible as well?

          We have done testing, what or how is it incompatiable?

            Apparently it just doesn't work correctly. Try loading it up in the emulator for MSN TV. I have tried it and it does look strange. Here is the WebTV developer page with tools and a viewer that allows PC
            users to see what web pages look like through WebTV. Might be useful for
            those questioning WebTV's access of the forums.



            If you install the viewer you would see that the forum is unusable as it
            currently stands for WebTV access.

            Also, what about replying to the digest emails, and vb posting stuff back on the forum? is this possible?

              Unusable no, abit funky yes, I am guessing its due to an issue with their change of their useragent or the useragent is differnt for the webtv system.

              However, i was able to login and make threads and posts
