It is the company that provides the news, sports, movies, weather apps. These apps were "updated". I use the term loosely.

It seems this update broke TV/Video and Radio. Any menu selection I make gives me the following error:

Bad content type: test/html

How do I undo the update?

Journeyman

Yea, I have had the same issue with it saying :Bad Content: ... Anyone have a solution to this??

Journeyman

If you're getting errors, check the link. Make sure you did not accidentally ad a blank/extra space or something. The directions work really well.

Journeyman

No luck on trying to reinstall the update. Got the same :Bad Content...: I tried it the way that Unstable posted it... I really don't want to reset anything if I have to...

Journeyman

Also, I already updated it previously to 1.1.5 so I am not sure why this is occuring with the most recent update. This just started happening today. I was able to watch SprintTV yesterday... go figure.

Journeyman

I think this is a problem related to Sprint doing website updates. I've had the Handmark update for a while now. Besides, the Handmark services are for Weather, News, etc - not TV - the handmark stuff seems to be working fine on my phone. TV is not though - nor can I access My Account or the Music Store (which is ok with me, lol).

Journeyman

This update only interacts Handmark's Pocket Express applications, issues with Sprint TV and Radio are problems with those applications or Sprint servers. From the error given it sounds like it's an issue with Sprint servers they could be doing maintenance or they could have problems with the servers.

Ok, I got the update, but it still will not play any news clips. What next?

Are you in a Power Vision internet area?

Journeyman

Yes, prior to all the updates I was able to watch the news and sports clips. I have no trouble with TV.
