Update: Windows Phone 8.1: Setting Up iCloud Email, Calendars And Contacts
Windows Phone logoIf outgoing iCloud emails are not sent, changing the IMAP and SMTP settings of your iCloud email account on Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8 fixes the problem. An additional problem is the message ‘Attention required’ which is solved in the same way. Normally, you set up your iCloud email account on a Windows Phone filling in your iCloud email address and your password. However, this is not working for some people any more. The same happened to me some days ago.

Update: Fixing iTunes 11.1.4 Windows Installations: Apple Support Document released
iTunes_11_iconIf you can’t install Apple’s latest iTunes 11.1.4 update (download) because iTunes installation fails and causes crashes, you can fix this problem by deleting all corresponding iTunes files and programs and re-install it. It seems that mainly Windows 7 (beside Vista and XP) is affected, not Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I can confirm the later, I was able to install iTunes 11.1.4 on my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8.1 Pro without any issues.

FRITZ! by AVMDisplaying the incoming caller ID (CLIP = Calling Line Identification Presentation) of a GSM gateway (Vodafone RL 500 ZTE) connected to a FRITZ!Box 7170 V2 works by connecting the GSM gateway and the FRITZ!Box 7170 V2 via an own crimped cable. One end of the crimped cable has a 4C2P plug (pins 2 +3), the other end a 8C2P plug (RJ45, pins 3 + 6). If you set up of the GSM Gateway with a Sagem / Vodafone RL 500 on a FRITZ!Box 7170 V2 with the enclosed products’ cables and connectors, the caller ID will not be displayed on your phones for calls coming via the GSM gateway to the FRITZ!Box.

Update: Fixing Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite Notes Crashes And Exchange Syncing Bugs

Mac OS X 10.9 IconIn this post I show you how to fix Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Notes crashes and Notes syncing bugs with an exchange server. The fix should work on previous Mac OS X versions like 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion, too. Upgrading to Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks lead to several bugs concerning Gmail and exchange syncing. Further more, it could lead to Notes crashes and syncing bugs with exchange server. I on my own faced these two major bugs on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012).

Update: Plex On Apple TV Without PlexConnect Or Jailbreak via AirPlay
Plex LogoI’ve already reported about that PlexConnect still works on Apple TV Software 6.0 Beta (5.4 Seed 3, iOS 7) after the silent update from August, 27, 2013 and how to fix PlexConnect to get it running again on Apple TV 2 or Apple TV 3. However, getting PlexConnect installed on a Windows system like windows 7, 8 or 8.1 is a little bit tricky. Although Paul Kehrer published immediately a tweak to get PlexConnect working again on Apple TV 2 and 3, a lot of people are reporting about installation is failing, especially on Windows systems. The most common problem there is to get the certificate or profile correctly installed on the Apple TV. In the following I give you a simple step-by-step guide to get PlexConnect running again on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. For installing PlexConnect on Mac OS X follow the fix described on the post ‘PlexConnect still works on Apple TV Software 6.0 Beta (5.4 Seed 3, iOS 7) after the silent update‘.

Update for windows 7,8 and 8.1: Installing PlexConnect On Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 After Apple TV Update
Plex LogoOn August, 27, 2013, Apple released a ‘silent’ update on Apple TV. Apps for Vevo, Weather Channel, Disney, and Smithsonian Channel were added. Together with these new apps, the update broke the option to run Plex Media Server via PlexConnect on Apple TV 2 and 3 (Apple TV 1 was never supported by PlexConnect). However, Paul Kehrer published immediately a tweak to get PlexConnect working again on Apple TV 2 and 3. I followed Paul’s tweak and I got PlexConnect working again both on an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV software 5.3 and an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV Software 6.0 Beta (5.4 seed 3, iOS 7) after the latest Apple TV update.

MetaWatch Logo

Update: MetaWatch Manager 1.3 And Firmware 1.5 Updates Pushing All iOS 7 Notifications

MetaWatch LogoThe latest MetaWatch Manager 1.2.5 update fails to connect to the MetaWatch. Up to version 1.2.4 the MetaWatch Manager worked perfectly on the latest iOS 7 beta. This means the reason for that problem is located in the MetaWatch Manager. But I found a fix to restore MetaWatch Manager version 1.2.4. This fix works if there is version 1.2.4 somewhere left on your computer.
