hulu + cec/ps3 remote = not working (new FW issue?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is related to the new firmware, But i picked up a new tv yesterday and tried hulu again. Have not used it since the firmware was updated. Now I am unable to control hulu with either the tv remote via cec or even the ps3 remote. I don't believe the TV is the issue as the ps3 remote is not working either. Controller works fine. Only thing i can think of is they are not allowing "controller 7" to control the app kind of like games. Can anyone confirm this?

Cliff notes:
1) hulu app not working with cec or ps3 remote
2) controller works
3) i think its related to the new firmware
4) can anyone else confirm?

My Harmony still controls Hulu just fine through the Logitech adapter, which shows up as #7 just like the Sony PS3 Remote. Try running the sync routine again, so that the PS3 and Remote shake hands and reintroduce themselves.

Also, you should never expect CEC to work, but instead should just be thankful when it happens to do anything at all. As with many of the "standards" in this retarded industry, it has become so polluted with proprietary crap as to be pretty useless most of the time. If you just bought a new TV, then it probably broke CEC in your setup.

Forgot to update this earlier. wife was watching hulu using the controller. I actually called sony to see if they had an ideas or suggestions and to document the problem. While waiting on hold i tried the ps3 remote and it worked! I then tried the tv remote and same thing. Not sure what had fixed it, but hulu was not working even with a reboot.

Cliff notes:
its fixed but do not know why....
