    Was the hearth.com server location or provider changed with the move to XF? I'm wondering if a traceroute on a ping to the hearth.com picture server to see what is up. For a while comcast had my uploads and downloads going all around the country before hitting the main internet pipes. Getting them to a local server connected to the backbone made a very nice improvement.

    Same box, same IP.
    Pics are just inside a directory on the same server......

    Hog, here is another thing to try if you have yet done this type of thing.....

    There is a place in your computer where you set the DNS lookups. There is also one in your router, which is often the default.

    Make sure the first two are googles dns

    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    After that, use one that your satellite provider mentions or another public DNS:

    Hog, if the problem still exists after all the DNS an resetting - let me know. I think I have a way for you to try uploading without the "flash" uploaded - who knows, maybe that will solve things?
