How to Fix Discovery Plus Error Code Fallback
The Fallback error with Discovery Plus is more difficult to troubleshoot and normally occurs when there is a problem with the server. The video you are trying to access cannot be found on the server and it’s trying to play the next video or Fallback on the next video in queue. As the issue is not listed on the official website, we cannot say for certain. So, this is an educated guess, but Fallback should refer to when the current video is not accessible and the device is switching to another video.
As the Discovery Plus Error Code Fallback is caused due to a server problem, there is nothing you can do about it. We suggest that you browse forums to check if other users are also having a similar problem. Anyhow, since the problem is not on your end but the service provider there is little you can do on your end, other than being patient and waiting for the service to resume normal functionality. Sometimes the issue can be resolved in minutes, other times you may have to wait hours.
How to Fix Discovery Plus Error Code 504
The 504 error code is an HTTP error code used by web browsers and application. Other error code you may see is the 404. Just like browsers, apps also use the HTTP codes and in this case, the Discovery Plus Error Code 504 means the same when you see it on a website, which is Gateway Timeout Error.

Fortunately, it also means that the problem is not on your end and just like above, there is nothing you can do to help the situation.
That’s all we have in this guide, hope it answers your situation, and Discovery Plus would resolve server issues on their end, which should fix both the Fallback and 504 error codes.
