Forbidden URL opening from the TV Application

  • When testing the Example application riverGameTV I get this error "Forbidden URL opening from the TV Application."
    In fact, I'm getting this error with pretty much everything running through opera tv store.

    My Settings:

    TV Application name: MyTestApp001
    TV Application url:

    I'm running apache on winXP for my test server.

    I also tested it live on samsung BDH5900 opera tv store, and it says "This URL cannot be opened!" I tried creating just a normal html file of just "hello world" and I'm having the same issue.
    Had the same issue when I tried with URL loader on samsung BDH5900 with opera tv store and the URL loader on the emulator.
    It works fine with using the browser on my desktop pc and when using the browser on the emulator like this then the game loads.

    What am I doing wrong here...?

    Thank you in advance


    I figured out the problem.

    You can't use private IP classes (local IP addresses).

    Although I tried using my public IP it wasn't working because of a glitch with the router provided by my ISP. I can't access my public IP from my own network. It's a weird glitch.

    So, after I figured that out it was an easy problem to fix. I'm using a web host account, and now I can access and view the app from my TV and the Emulator.
