Sorry if this has been posted, but since I just got "official" word from BB that my queue wasn't setup right I figured I'd post it.

I had all "wait" discs at the top, figuring they'd just skip down to the first available. Didn't work. They said that there would be a 3 day wait while they looked for them since they were at the top. That makes no logical sense to me, but it is a good rationale for dumb software.

My fist cycle had 1 available and one NR for the following day at the top of the list, and it went according to plan - Day A=return to store; Day B=shipped available #1; Day C=shipped NR on first day available. So this cycle is as above and no ship for 3 days.

Just putting it out there ...

Eve: I thought I was through getting involved with men who were trouble. Falling in love on a look. I can't look at you.

Mickey: You have perfection about you. Your eyes have music. Your heart's the best part of your body. And when you move, every man, woman and child is forced to watch.

The only thing is how would a guy change the settings to always have the "available" titles on top? We cannot do that in the "que" settings

Anyone else having issues accessing their queue? I keep getting the "Error 500-Internal Server Error" page that I got a few months ago when blockbuster was having all of their queue issues.

I can access it, but all the coming soon save links are gone. Looked up a few alphabetically and they're not there anywhere.

Thanks for the replies- it's still not working for me so I sent off an email to them. Hopefully they get it fixed soon. Everything else is working, I just can't view my queue.

Where are you looking? I find them by doing a regular search. If you click the link then click on the movie link in your queue you'll see the info about the title.

When i first signed up i too had this error. It really sucked because 2 of 3 titles they mailed me i wanted to delete because i had already rented at the store before i reactivated my online account. After a whole lotta complaining e-mails they finally fixed it and gave me 2 weeks for free, but before that they also told me about a possible work around after they got tired of my e-mails.

If you happen to have a facebook page, or don't mind signing up for one, there is an application for blockbuster online there. So thru facebook and that app, i was able to finally get to my queue and play with it there until they were able to finally fix it on their site. Much faster than waiting for them. And i still got the 2 weeks free, even though the facebook application worked. Hope that helps! Small price to pay having to go there til they fixed the problem and well worth 2 free weeks.

I'm getting the Blockbuster queue errors as well.....it's been at least 4 days now. Emails to blockbuster have been ignored for 2-3 days so far. Not good.

Well, I think I figured it out. I went ahead and used the facebook blockbuster application (thanks jimmy25) and trimmed down my queue from about 175+ movies to ~100 and now I can access it from the main site. So it has something to do with the size of your queue- maybe larger queues are stored on a particular server that gets overloaded frequently?

I could have sworn I had Digital Video Essentials (BR) in my queue at one point. I can't find it on the site anymore (they do carry HD-DVD) version. Am I crazy?

You would think this would be one of the titles they would carry in Blu-ray for a TV series. My local store doesn't have it either. I actually work there and asked the store manager why we don't have Lost on Blu-ray and he doesn't understand it either. We have Weeds, Band of Brothers and Grey's Anatomy on Blu-ray for TV, but not Lost which makes no sense. Grey's Anatomy doesn't appeal to high-def as much as Lost would. It surely doesn't make sense. We are all stumped on why we don't carry Mirrors on Blu-ray too. We got The Wackness movie on Blu-ray, but not Mirrors. Something just doesn't make sense there.

I've never seen Lost but I wouldn't mind watching season 1 if it shows up on BD.

Well i don't think that is THE problem(perhaps one of many), because i had quit the total access for a few months, and only had about 30 titles in my queue when i resigned up and still was getting the error. I guess I was lucky for having anything in there at all. Especially because it took them 2 weeks to figure out how to fix the problem, so if I was new to BBV online, I would have had nothing in my queue, and been unable to get into it. But again, hooray for the facebook application that works apparently better than big blues website since I have never had problems managing my queue through them! Makes good sense that they can get an application on another web site to work for your queue, but they have real issues getting it to work on their own website. Ha.

If I didn't like the ability to be able to trade at the store, I would absolutely go to Netflix. But it all worked out in my favor in the end, so I stay with big blue.

Season 1 of Lost will be released on Blu-ray. I read not to long ago that the first 2 seasons are coming to Blu-ray.

I also can't access my Blockbuster (BB) queue the usual way (same problem as you guys got: "10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error").

The problem started a week ago. I had to sign up for Facebook (FB) also and the BB app there allows me to access my queue just fine.

I sent BB an email asking for help and this is what they sent me:

"Thank you for contacting Blockbuster Customer Care.

We are sorry to hear that you were unable to update your queue. We were aware that some customers were having trouble updating their queue that past days. Please do update your queue again for the website error has been fixed. Please let us know if you still experience the same error. Thank you for your cooperation.

I recommend to please maintain at least 15 or more "Available" titles at the top of your queue to keep movies coming. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.


Always here to help,"

It sucks that the problem has NOT been fixed, and I have over 400 movies in my queue already. Maybe she looked at my queue and saw that changes had recently been made due to me accessing it through Facebook and she assumed the problem was now resolved? Maybe the last paragraph was boiler plate text they put in most of their replies.

Anyway, I'll be happy to use FB to get BB's queue system to work for me, so I'm not going to complain any more. Just letting everyone know that signing up for FB and using the BB app there seems like a good work around for at least some of us. I still wouldn't have access to my queue if I didn't do a search for the problem and get lucky finding your suggestions.

Your issue may be because of the # of titles in your queue. You might want to press the issue and let them know that that might be the cause. It'd be nice if they'd resolve it for everyone.
