[pivotCE] Preware.org woes: feeds/site down as domain slips away

Having trouble accessing Preware feeds in either Preware or WOSQI today?  Tried getting to www.preware.org and failed?  Well, you’re not alone.  Read on for the details.

UPDATE – Rod Whitby chimed in on the discussion (linked below). He confirmed the domain was newly expired and taken over. The webOS Internals team is contacting the individual for their demands but mentioned they also purchased preware.net to use as a backup if need be. Preware will be updated as well to reflect to domain change. He did offer a temporary solution for ipkg.preware.org. Edit your local DNS to point it to the IP 140.211.169.161.

pivotCE reached out to the webOS Internals team today on Twitter for answers.  It seems the sysadmin team has been alerted.  As for the course of action they’ll take, I’m not sure.  But while we all wait, have a look at your favorite “whois” site for the likely culprit. Don’t have one?  I did the hard work for you.

Simply put, someone snatched the domain.  See the “whois” result from
.

What does this mean for feed access?  Well, it’s hard to tell for the moment but for now we’ll just have to wait and see.  Hopefully some type of temporary solution can be put in place soon.

This has put the fear into some people (me included). You may remember when the and permanently closed.  Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself.  Speculation would say it won’t because will be using the same feeds for .

Folks are discussing this topic over at .  Feel free to chime in.

On a personal note, to the person who seems to have snatched the domain, not cool.  Seriously.  Not cool.

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin

      Hi to all! 
      I'm really new into this and have a problem. My 2018 LG 55UJ635V-ZF has only webOS 3 (latest; ethernet-automatic download) an i can't use airplay or miracast. The apps i found in the store for mirroring are only pay2use to use this needed feature for me.
      On the LG Homepage i can't find an upgrade for my TV an maybe is my tv really to old for upgrades or am i wrong?
      Maybe someone can help me out or bring some light for me in this.
      I also found the suggestions on this site for the firmware 4.70.70 (for the UJ's), but i can't download....error.
      sorry for my bad english 🙂
      thx for your help, quartex.

      However I cannot push IPK to tv or just list stuff:
       
      I am getting this error when calling:
      ares-device-info --device tv2 outputs:
      ares-device-info ERR! [syscall failure]: read ENOTCONN Any ideas?
       
      I can ping the TV just fine and getting the key from the TV also worked but connection fail...
       
      I am using macOS 12.16 and the TV is using webOS 4.9...
      I also tried different node versions (v8.17.0 and v17.3.0)
      Any ideas?
