    They gave you codes to hand out and a post in the blog section. HMX has done more than enough to make you "happy and stuff".

    So are you going to completely skip the Paramore previews? :(

    Regrettably, I think we'll have to. It's just a bad week for travel for a lot of people involved. We could try to do it on Friday when everyone is back, but at that point the tracks have been out for days and most people who wanted to preview the charts will have seen them on the videos you supported with codes.

    We'll see about dropping some trivia or sharing some of the stories here or in the discussion thread tomorrow though!

    Hurm. I can't imagine our troubles with the show should have anything do do with not even being able to subscribe. Have you been able to subscribe or view any other channels?

    I've been able to watch out stream on both my iPad and iPhone using just the free Twitch TV app. I'd see if you have any luck with other shows to see if it's just us and then revisit when we make another attempt next Monday.

    I haven't tried other shows (no interest in them), but reading some of the reviews on the app review page makes it sound like it's a pretty buggy app (the latest release anyway). I've been able to register, and I tried on both my phone and iPad but it crashes A LOT... I think everytime I've hit the "Games" menu.

    Is doing a Search for "Harmonixmusic" the best way to try and find the channel? That keeps coming up "No Results" and there's no way I'm sifting through 4336 other channels to find it by brute force :D

    Also, I realize this isn't Harmonix issue to try and troubleshoot, but I do appreciate the help.

    EDIT: For S&G's I just tried a couple of the "Featured" game channels and they seem to work...So I guess I just need to figure out a way to find the Rockband channel somehow...

    You can try going directly to the URL (http://www.twitch.tv/harmonixmusic) and seeing if that prompts the app. Or you can search for Harmonixmusic as the channel name.

    Other than that I'd suggest at least trying one other show to see if it's an issue specifically with our channel (which is possible) or with your account / connection or the app. Twitch.TV folks have been really easy to work with when we've talked to them so you can try dropping them a line for additional troubleshooting. Hope that helps!

    There's a Twitch TV update which went live today and seems to have fixed a lot of issues.

    Cool..thanks for the update...I'll see if it works now during the next livestream. It's still buggy (in that it constantly asks me if I want to install the damn app, even when it's already loaded), but at least it let me "follow" Harmonixmusic now (which it didn't before). I'm guessing the channel only shows up when it's live?

    Since tonight's show will likely be an hour long, we could do 30 min of Sean dancing over Maiden and then everyone will be happy!

    Great stream! First one i've seen of the weekly DLC previews. But it lagged like crazy for me and refreshing it 100X didn't help at all... I'm getting a new laptop for graduation soon so that should help lol...

    They have all their livestreams recorded and saved should anything change in the future, but due to licensing and broadcasting issues they are unable to leave the videos up on the site once they record the stream. They're working to fix the broadcasting legal hurdles and will hopefully upload all of the videos one day as well as any future livestreams, but for now re-watching the charts still requires Elison or anyone else that does weekly videos

    The nice answer!

    Thanks again to everyone for tuning in. We're really getting the hang of what works. The schedule for the next few weeks will be pretty wonky with E3 coming up, but we'll keep everyone posted if the broadcast time changes. Keep those suggestions coming, we'll keep incorporating feedback!
