The looking up of a url that is not available on the public net seems to be the test. I will continue to hack at this and see exactly how this works since if you have plenty of bandwidth and you can do the proper resolve of a hostname to an ip you seem to get the green light from netflix for superHD.
Any additional thoughts on this are appreciated.
I tried changing the DNS on my blu-ray player and this is what I noticed:
1. The video seemed to have no difference (1080p before the change and 1080p after).
2. The audio seemed to go from DD 5.1 to DD 5.1 + on the same show I was watching before and after the DNS change.
Does anyone know what we're supposed to expect from HD to Super HD from Netflix?
Also, I tried making the same change on my laptop but it didn't work. After changing the DNS on the laptop and going to Netflix, I got an error from unblock:
"We need your email address to check your service status.
Please enter your email and click Continue."
I guess it's because I don't have an account with Unblock? I changed the DNS back to blank and everything was fine.
