I do believe that the issue is with Sky's player, and I think the previous update has caused this. However, given the collaboration between Virgin and Sky and given that I am not the only person experiencing the issue, I'd like this raised for me by Virgin. Whilst the fault isn't with Virgin here, it is affecting me as a customer.
Can you sign in here to see what devices are registered please? This is in the settings then manage my devices, this will take you through to view what devices are registered and make changes to these.
Thank you for confirming. Just to check, are you able to access the Sky Sports service on any other devices or when using mobile data?
It does look like this may have been caused by the update and if it requires more ports, this could cause problems with certain setups. If you have issues when trying to use a different device or connection, the issue probably lies with your account. If the problem only occurs on your work PC, it would suggest that it's a fault or setting contradiction with the player itself.
IT have looked at the ports for me and there's still no change I'm afraid. I have no doubt that the issue is with the player but I would hope that Virgin would be in touch with Sky to tell them that customers are being affected by this.
As you've advised that Sky customers are also posting about the issues I'm sure that Sky would already be aware that there is an issue that needs addressing. As it is a work PC I'm not sure if this is possible for you, however have you tried downloading the desktop app and seeing if the issue persists? Have IT been able to open the additional ports they think the app needs for service or is this something they can't do for you?
That post was the first thing I came across - I have uninstalled and re-installed several times, restarted, turned off and on again and tried every browser. Nothing has given so far unfortunately. Please see the below screenshot. I see only V6.0, not 6.1 as "Volt" states. IT have not been able to sort the ports as of yet but I suspect that is a co-incidence and not the issue.
I have no devices but I can't register any devices, because every time I try to follow the steps in the last box I go to the player, which spits out the original error code.
CIE-2000 might well be a Sky code for "this device is not registered" but at this point I'm stuck in a loop. I can't register my device and I can't use the player without being registered. And it all worked fine until the end of January.
I'm sorry to hear that you are getting an error code CIE-2000 whenever you register to Sky Sport. I've read your posts and it shows that you have tried everything on your end, like; you uninstalled and re-installed several times, restarted, turned off and on again and tried other browser. And still nothing works. We appreciate your time doing all of these.
Since same problem occur, I would recommend a technical specialist that will help you on this. We can do this via online chat.
