I'm wondering why PBS signs off when I sign on from another computer in my home.  I would like to be able to sign on from the two that I use and have it stay signed on for two weeks.  Is there anyway to do that?  Thanks.

I have 3 that I use frequently and they all remain logged in. Did you check that little box under where you log in that says keep me logged in for 2 weeks?

I never have a problem, and I log in here at home AND over at my sisters house, on her computer

Don't click the Logout link. That will erase the cookie and you will have to login again next time you come back.

I get on PBS on three different computers--PC at home, laptop, and work computer--and stay logged in on all three.  And it remembers me for much,much longer than two weeks.  I think I have only had to log in once on each computer since I joined last June!

Check your browser settings, you might have it set to delete all your cookies when you close the browser.  That'd override checking off the "keep me signed in" link.

I've never encountered that problem and I am signed on on 3 computers at the same time...

I don't have my browser set to delete cookies when I sign off.  I just went on my other computer just a while ago and when I came back to this one, I had to sign in all over again.  It's the same with SwapaDVD and SwapaCd.  I have no idea why.  It didn't used to do that and nothing has changed that I know of.  If anyone has any suggestions I'd be pleased to hear them.  Thanks for all your replies.

I'm having to sign back in frequently too, even if I have the "remember me" box checked.  Didn't used to be this way but has been for several weeks.
