Error Code 100, Ipad, FIXED!!!
I have tried for nearly 2 months to resolve this error code on my IPad, with absolutely no help from DirecTv Customer Service reps. This error code is related to registering your device on the DirecTv App (for IPad). It would constantly say “cannot register...try again later” or something like that and give me error code 100. Even though my receiver was connected to the internet and verified multiple times, it simply wouldn’t show connected in the App. I uninstalled and reinstalled the App at least a dozen different times but it did not fix the problem. When I went into settings on the IPad App and tap on Receiver, it would show a red “light” inidicating the receiver had no internet connection even though my Receiver showed it was connected.
Well, I finally figured out the fix: Even if your Receiver box shows connected to the internet, go through the steps of manually setting up the internet connection (again). By manually entering my home Network Name and Network password, the internet connection was re-established and verified. Then I got on my IPad... checked my Settings, the Receiver option, and lo and behold I have a green light now!! I was able to complete the registration process for my device, did not get error code 100. I now have all my channels and access to my DVR recordings.
In thinking back, I remember there was a day where I kept losing my internet service from my local provider (Windstream). Well, apparently it jacked-up the DirecTv App. No amount of uninstalling and reinstalling the App would fix the problem. I had to manually re-establish the internet connection on the Receiver box. I don’t know if this is the solution for everyone getting that same error code, but it worked for me. It’s day 3 now and all is (still) working great!!
