Tv Anywhere Device detection has timed out message

Hi, I tried to use the TV Anywhere feature for the first time today and that's the message I get every time I have tried. I noticed a few posts about this but thought I would try posting my own. I tried to watch a few movies and TV shows thinking it might just be what I was selecting but after a few tries I believe that not to be the case. I then thought it might be that I didn't register my PC before trying to watch something but I get the same message when I go to the options page. I'm using Firefox 18.0 with the latest Adobe Flash Player 11.5.502.146. I tried disabling my Anti-Virus and Firewall and the same result. Any help would be appreciated but after looking about I didn't see a fix to others with similar problems. Thanks for any replies.

Hi kyle12,

 

Have you tried using any other browsers, such as Internet Explorer?

Hi, I probably should have done that before posting. It works now thanks. I still find it a little strange that firefox doesnt work but internet explorer does. Would prefer to use firfox but cant be picky if it works. Thanks for replying.

Yeah it is a little inconvinient. I'm looking into the cause of this though, it seems like the latest Flash version might not play nicely with Firefox 18 yet?
