Invalid credentials and/or API token


This error happens after fresh install. It works fine on my other Win10/11 PCs. Any idea how to proceed?

Oh wow, that's a new one. Very weird since the API token is identical on all RMTV installs.
Just to make sure I tried it on my Windows 11 and MacOS machines just now as well; TVDB works just fine as well.

My first guess would be to completely uninstall RMTV and reinstall it. But I assume you did that already.

Next guess: disable all network connections (ethernet/wifi) and see what happens when enabling them again.

Other things I can think of: disable VPN if you have it active and test again. Reenable VPN if that worked.
