The error for me cleared after a reboot of the box. I later noticed that the TV guide update issue had been solved as well. I wonder if the two are connected and the fix is being rolled out around the county region by region, or however they do it. Having said that I see that the 501 error is listed on the status page as an ongoing fault.
