Netflix does seem to provide me what is promised any time of day. 12mb/s 3D streams and the 6Mb/s SuperHD streams without issues.


Would it be safe to assume being in VA. where CIA,NSA and FBI are located also not far from D.C. and near all the private and not so private and black budget contractors that do who knows what?

That the internet infrastructure and routers are pretty stout there in the neighborhood as opposed to what the rest of us get just saying ?
Seattle and Silicon valley are pretty good in that respect as well
probably not too bad in Bluffdale, Utah either eek.gif

aaronwt :
yousa what are putting on that 128 TB of local storage in your sig
do you even really need netflix with that ?
what is that like maybe 32,000 - 2 hr movies ? biggrin.gif

(The weirdness was House of Cards would not get the Super HD streams on my Apple TV but would on my Chromecast).

Most of our other viewing was on the Apple TV - but some using the Chromecast - with both devices they seem to have no trouble getting Super HD on other titles.

As before a Comcast 16 Mbps connection.

Your Chromecast isn't technically streaming anything directly from the net, it's just streaming a video signal from your AppleTV to it. So yes, I can also get a 5800 test stream (off the 23FPS test) to show up off my iPad too on the Chromecast, I'm not sure about the rest of them because there's no way for me to check the bitrate on anything else.

Yes the Chromecast is streaming directly from the Netflix servers and displaying directly on the TV (in my case through an HDMI input on my receiver).

All the iPhone / iPad (or Android phone / tablet) is doing is setting up the connection between the Netflix servers and the Chromecast and acting as a remote (there is no Apple TV involved).

As has been posted in the Chromecast thread you can actually close the app on the phone or even shut off the phone and title will keep streaming to the Chromecast.

It occasionally comes back to HD quality but isn't consistent. Is this most likely a coincidence or is it possible that bandwidth is being throttled?

Glad I am not the only one. I started to watch Breaking Bad via my Oppo and it was great the first episode. The next two look like VHS to DVD quality via Oppo or Roku! I have an average 14mbps download speed and my ISP is TWC. I am hearing the TWC didn't want to use Open Connect, so does that mean I would get anything less than 1080i resolution? I don't care if I don't get Super HD at the moment, but I don't want to get a crappy looking picture when I have the means of seeing high quality and haven't seen this in the past.

I read someone in another thread theorize that Netflix may have been put to the test last night with tons of people doing marathon viewings of Breaking Bad before the finale.

Yesterday I was watching super hd both on atv3 and ps3 with no problems after I removed unotelly DNS and resetting the network. Today I get error message on ps3 and netflix currently unavailable on atv3. On iPad 4 is ok. Tried unplugged both atv3 and ps3 and unplugged also he Filos modem but still nothing. I have fios 80/25 with AirPort Extreme router. Any idea?

I ran into this ''currently unavailable errror'' problem on my PS3 this weekend. I went to Game Data Utility and deleted the Netflix folder there, then rebooted the console. You'll need to sign in again with your email and password. It connected after that, with no further error messages.

 

I just tried my Insignia NS BRDVD4 blu ray player, and got a strange ''player is not connected to the internet'' error message. Strange as I'd used Pandora a few minutes before. It happened 4 times. So I went into Settings and deactivated the Netflix app, and rebooted. Launched app, and it offered an activation code to take to Netflix online. Inputted the code, and the app entered into Netflix.

I'm not familiar with the ATV3, but I'd gues you'd look under Settings to delete the app, and then after a reboot, redownload it and sign in/activate again.

post #1598 of 1798
Thanks for the answer. I am gonna try this when I Am gonna go home. I erase the app from ps3 not from game data but from highlight the app and click the triage button on pa3 gamepad. I am gonna try it like you said. In at3 is noway to uninstall from the settings.
post #1599 of 1798

If the ATV3 doesn't allow you to delete an app, then you can go online to your Netflix account, and deactivate all devices linked to your account. You'd have to sign in again when using them, and I can't say for sure that the saved data on the ATV3 app (which might have become corrupted or at odds with any updates coming down from NF), would be purged in the process.

But it is an option should the A3  NF app continue to have issues.

I deactivated all devises online But in atv3 the problem insist.

Is it possible for specific content to be affected? I ask because the problems I mentioned above were with Breaking Bad but I assumed it was the service in general. Last night and just 10 minutes ago I watched Breaking Bad play with very poor quality for 80-90% of the episode, but when streaming any other SuperHD content it's high quality as soon as it starts and never dips. I go back to Breaking Bad and it's poor quality again.

Usually the problem with ATV3 connectivity problems is solved by unplugging the power cord to the ATV3 for 30 seconds or more and rebooting the router.

If this doesn't correct the problem try establishing a different connection with your router. If you are using wireless then try connecting the ATV3 with an ethernet cable. If you are using an ethernet cable then trying connecting the ATV3 with wireless.

These are the only two solutions I know of.

It's often appeared that that might be true. Huge numbers of people trying to access the same small number of files might be a problem for the servers. There were no doubt a large number of subscribers doing marathon viewing of episodes on Netflix prior to the finale.

I'd think that with the latest frenzy over BB that the demand would be the more likely cause for poor quality. It is the service in general, though, it's just that you can't expect everyone to have constantly equal access without that coming at extra cost that Netflix is likely trying to keep to a minimum.

PS3 Netflix app updated to v2.14. Now 1080 Super HD displays as 1080 SD.
post #1606 of 1798
SD? You've got to be kidding.
post #1607 of 1798
Super Definition? Since 1080 isn't Standard Definition?

When I cancel my membership and changed my dns from the specific from them, to automatic dns to all my devices, was working just for one day. After suddenly couldn't connect. My laptop is connecting Ethernet with actiontec router of fios and the router fios is connecting with AirPort Extreme via bridge mode. Anybody knows the reason why is happening this? Or anybody know a specific free dns that netflix gonna work without problems? ( since automatic can't connect ) any help I ll appreciate.

The FiOS DNS IP addresses work perfectly for me.

My point is why did they think is was a good idea to use an existing acronym that means the opposite, when adding another letter or two would have made it totally unambiguous.

Ok...most changes of the DNS in a broadband modem (your Actiontec) would require it to be rebooted/unplugged for a few seconds, as well as any devices conneted to it, including the Airport Extreme (router?).

Did you perform this unplug this morning? It sounds like the unotelly DNS address is still loaded in one of your routers, and is redirecting the PS3 and ATV to unotelly.

This is just guessing, based on what you've posted....

 

My own setup has my cable gateway in bridge mode, connectd to my DLink router. I have unblock-us DNS addresses set in the DLink. Which did you program the unotelly addresses in, your router or ISP modem?

I reboot and unplugged the actiontec modem and the AirPort Extreme many times. The DNS unotelly I didn't put on the router but to the ip4 Ethernet connect on my laptop. But I think I also put it to the actiontec modem. I have to to get to the settings of my fios modem, but I have to reset it cause I forgot the password for login.

I think it is a glitch which I hope will be fixed. As for the new update I think performance is worse as it takes longer for it to ramp up even sometimes rebuffering in the beginning and it still sometimes drops to that worthless 240 SD. What is the point of even updating the app if it makes it worse. Don't they test this before they release it.

That stream info display is an unadvertised debugging tool. They'll fix it when and as they see fit and probably only if enough developers working on the player are annoyed by it.

Remember the period where there was text overlaying a part of the text that was useful to us, garbling it? That went on for quite a while.
post #1617 of 1798
My PS3 player is still 2.0 so it still shows SuperHD. I wonder how they decide who gets what version?

This is kind of a detour, but you still have an x90 series Sony player, right? When you cursor up and down through the different video apps in the cross-bar menu, do you now automatically go to SEN no matter what you pick? My 390 has been doing that the last few firmwares and I don't know if my player is hosed or it works that way by design now. I did notice the latest firmware does get me up to SuperHD (4300), but not the highest rate.

TIA
post #1619 of 1798
I don't actually use my S390 so I don't know about any current bugs. Sorry.

Finally! biggrin.gif Netflix came to its senses. Never understood why Netflix would antagonize entities that are integral part of its business model and deprive its customers needlesssly. Oh, yes. I remember the reason now: Hastings is a short-sighted fool whose time is long overdue.

Now where can I find a list of 3D Netflix offerings? smile.gif
