Hi Guys,
I have several weeks already, since I am unable to access Geekzone website from home (desktop or a HP laptop), I get the same error 406, something regarding MIME types. The desktop is running Win 7 and the laptop Win 10. The desktop at work (Win 7) appears to be able to access the site.

I have tried Explorer and Firefox, bot return the same error.
I have tried to make some changes to some Firefox parameters as per some threads I found on internet but no success.

Did anyone experience the same issues? Could anyone suggest changes I need to make?

The computers have updates activated. I was able to check on the desktop the .net version and in the registry it shows 4.0 but I installed 4.5.2, the install went OK with no error but this version is not shown in registry...? Could this be related to .net environment??

The desktop is an i5 bought as secondhand but with fresh OS installed in the shop (also installed SSD at the same time).

mobo Intel DH55PJ, RAM: 4GB RAM, Nova-T 500 HD + Avermedia Trinity tuner card, Geforce 520 video, 120GB SSD Sandisk + 640 WD + 1000SG, Win7 Home Prem 64-bit, Media Portal 1.15.0; BTC 9019URF Cordless Keyboard, Panasonic 55" (HDMI cable), HTPC Case Silverstone Grandia GD05B.
