@donc, my suggestion is to try a different browser (Chrome or Firefox would be my recommendation). At least this will help us find out if it’s a browser related issue. I can’t test IE9 right now because my XP says it can’t upgrade to IE9 and my Win8 says it can’t downgrade to IE9…
I’m somewhat reluctant to install Chrome or Firefox as this computer is part of my business network, and our IT person prefers we all stick with the same browser as it’s easier for him to maintain and troubleshoot problems. I’ll contact him and discuss installing Chrome.
BTW, take a look at the update to my previous post regarding being able to communicate with OS via my home automation system. Considering that, It seems to me that it’s probably an issue related to IE9.
