The only way to workaround this is to deauthorize the device and start over with Netflix user/PW info. This is incredibly annoying given your remote based entry system and I end up wasting 5 minutes everytime we want to watch something. Of course this whole "reauth" thing lasts just that session and as soon as we power down - the crap starts all over again.
Conversely - accessing Netflix on our iPads - I can not watch Netflix on my iPad for weeks on end and then log in when the mood strikes with no issues whatsoever.
Clearly the Netflix app on the 105 has fallen way behind in terms of currency because it's quickly becoming useless.
Would appreciate any ideas on exactly is wrong with this app on the Oppo. OR what is wrong at Netflix HQ - because this is getting close to becoming not worth paying for.
If the NF app were fubar, you'd have hundreds of complaints blanketing all the Oppo owner threads,
but instead there are none, and there are tons of people who use Netflix daily on the 10x players.
Even your own comment where you say...
"Conversely - accessing Netflix on our iPads - I can not watch Netflix on my iPad for weeks on end and then log in when the mood strikes with no issues whatsoever."
That is another clear indication your issue doesn't have anything to do with the player,
since the player isn't involved with how Netflix works on your iPad.
Also, I have personally just watched Netflix on my BDP-105D and
on my iPad just yesterday with no issues.
It is obvious that your problem is either with your router/modem, cabling, ISP, etc... Perhaps your connection may be too slow?
Have you tried resetting the player back to factory default settings, or even installing/re-installing the latest
firmware version via USB method? Of course you shouldn't have to do that, but for the sake of troubleshooting the issue,
it may be a good idea to try. I'm pretty sure though, that your issue is happening elsewhere,
and your player is just receiving the bad signal with which it can't cope with.
