Stoopid Netflix
« on: January 04, 2014, 08:51:10 PM »
I've been on Netflix for about a year now. The first 6 months or so was great. But for the last 5 months or so it freezes up within just a few minutes.

Yep. Netflix sucks ass. Tried to watch Jack Reacheround this afternoon and didn't get 2 minutes in before we hit the first 2 minute buffering delay.

Make sure the netmask is on straight and not partially blocking one of the bits.

I agree it sucks. I got a free three month trial with my chromecast in July that I just activated. Netflix is the only streaming service that buffers and lags. Hulu and Prime no issues, Netflix servers just blow.

I had grump at Netflix last week, too.  Totally unwatchable on our Tivo.  It's working OK via the AppleTV, so I can still get my Dr Who fix, but the lagging on the Tivo was just ridiculous.

When I purchased my tv last year I opted to not get a smart tv and instead buy a bluray player to handle the internet connection. I believe the problem is I purchased a really cheap bluray player (less than $100 I think) and it doesn't have a large enough cache to handle the video streaming.

I don't have lag...  Some pixelation when it gets busy...  Friday and Saturday night but I suspect that a cable sharing issue vs a netflix problem.  Netflix is all we watch and if anything happens, we'll have to totally rethink our entertainment options.  Netflix app on the TV makes is pretty simple to love.

I use the same device to stream from Amazon, Hulu and several other sources and never run into the types of near constant buffering that plagues Netflix. We'll sometimes try to watch a movie on Netflix and end up switching to Amazon to watch the same movie because it actually streams uninterrupted and is in HD instead of the lower resolution that we often get when Netflix can actually stream without pauses. I was happier with Netflix when I used to get discs in the mail and stream occasionally.

I'm thinking this will be the route we'll go. Streaming just doesn't work anymore. I enjoy the unlimited dvd rentals though.  :thumbsup:

What hangs it up on my iPad are certain push notifications or email receipts.  Sometimes just have to hit the play button again, sometimes re-boot; both generally involve having to get out of bed.

I have only had issues on one of my xbox 360s. I deleted the app and reinstalled it and had the same problem. I paid closer attention to the error and it said a secure connection to your TV has been lost. WTF? I unplugged and plugged back in all the HDMI cables and haven't had an issue again (months). Why would it only do this when the netflix app was playing and not the other apps or a game? :shrug:

So I'm thinking of rearranging some things. The computer is on the other side of the house from where the cable comes in. I have split the cable where it comes in; one side directly to the flat screen tv and the other side is split again to the cable modem and coax to the other side of the house to another tv (non-hd). The computer communicates via wifi as does the bluray player hooked up to the big tv. I'm convinced the issue I'm having has to do with the cheapo bluray I bought not being able to buffer the hd signal which causes it to lock up after a while. As I said before, I have no issues watching any type of streaming on my computer.

So, the corner where the cable enters is also the corner that Susan has her guitar practice stuff set up. I can swap that with the computer/desk/stuff at the front of the house and hook the computer up directly to the cable modem then run an hdmi cable directly to the big tv and I think that will solve my cacheing issue. My big question is; will my graphics card be able to display on the big tv a reasonably good image? It's a 48" Samsung LED and this is my graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB.

I'd prefer to have some certainty that this will work before I go moving everything around.

I ran a coax from the cable box directly to the TV instead of using the wireless.  I assumed I'd have better quality through uninterrupted signal.  I was mistaken.  No change for the better at all.  In fact, we just recently moved the wifi into the bedroom and went back to streaming wirelessly and it seems almost better.  I was surprised.

Right now, I'm home working on some writing, with Netflix streaming on my other laptop, and the kids have a teacher in-service day, so they\re home streaming off the Wii-U. Both streams, working great, even over our crap AT&T DSL connection.

This 100%. The problem is the suppliers our ISP's buy bandwith from are throttling bandwidth for traffic to Netflix. This is a part of the whole Net Nuetrality thing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_neutrality

Basically, the Tier 1 suppliers for bandwidth are deciding whose traffic is more important and which packets are given preference. Its a huge problem for anyone who is into netflix, gaming, or streaming content as the suppliers send your packets to the back of line.
