My streaming update just started a few minutes ago after the 130216-2 VPS update, so that may correct. Check to see if you've got the -02 VPS update for today. Good luck.

You only see 9 as there has also been a VPS update 130216-2, this includes the previous streaming updates so the previous streams are removed (50). Now the streams after VPS 130216-2 are in the 13021602_stream sub-folder only 9 so far.

As Klinker said, the 132016-2 VPS update would wipe the previous 50 streaming updates.  The 9 match what I have, see http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=114950.msg896902#msg896902.

Gopher John  (and others):

Pretty obvious we are having the identical issue here in the Midwest. I think Avast must have done something to fix this because I'm getting a constant connection to the Avast server, no matter which remote address my PC connects to. To test, I've rebooted and manually disabled the streaming updates through the GUI and no matter which remote address Avast connects to, it's now a steady connection...no more connected/disconnected like it had been doing all week (actually this has been going on since Christmas). In fact, as I type this three more streaming updates. Checked with another user in my area and they confirm streaming updates and a steady Avast server connection through their different ISP.

I'll continue to monitor the situation and check those server connections and post results here. If people can do the same perhaps we can make sure this is permanently resolved.

Thanks.

@Klinker,

Yes, I'm also seeing a solid connection to the streaming servers.  Currently have 13 streaming updates.  Many thanks to those that found the server problems and fixed them.

Here the Midwest U.S. streaming updates working fine....able to maintain server connection with no problems so far. Spoke with others in my area who have Avast (non-forum members) and some are receiving their first streaming updates since late January!!

Just watching the streaming update file on my PC I can see more streaming updates the last 16 hours than I've received all of February. If this is the way streaming updates are supposed to happen, it's pretty shocking how bad things have been since Christmas. Hopefully somebody with Avast will stay on top of things from this point forward.

It's strange, for 2 days I'm receiving ALL the streaming updates. I just need to wait 1~2 minutes after boot and I get a connection to cloud and system starts working.

Yesterday was bad, today is kind of hit or miss. Also noticed that the GUI "Last Update Received" time/date stamp differs from the definition folder time/date occasionally.

Received some today (but only 2 so far) on my XP Pro, avast RC1 build. However, on my win7 avast7 netbook I have 25 so far today.

So it certainly isn't stable and I have had a connection established all of the time I've checked and no update since the last reported 20/02/2013 13:13:12.

I don't need to be told what I should or shouldn't do, I'm reporting the situation not asking for help.
