Amazon is having some issues - will have to wait until those get sorted out. Not a HiFi problem.


#4

Why using cloud like amazon. if it does not autom atiuc fall back to alternate server ? This frustrating. Planned to upgrade things. High Fidelity need to complain at amazon.

The problem is that welcome is already on the new version.

[edit] Amazon S3 is broken. ETA ??

Increased Error Rates

We’re continuing to work to remediate the availability issues for Amazon S3 in US-EAST-1. AWS services and customer applications depending on S3 will continue to experience high error rates as we are actively working to remediate the errors in Amazon S3.

Overall the internet health is OK with exception of two backhauls.


#6

Why is there no alternate download ?
WHen things like this happen, high fidelity get shutdown in big amount. because protocol change. SO some domains are on old and soem are on new. And in my case still shutdown until i can update. And the download fail at all ways, IP, other domain name. it’s the same error.

ANd things make it worse when nobody knows or tell what is really wrong.
