That is odd indeed. I'd recommend removing the widget from the options, and then re-downloading it to see if that helps.
What kind of router are you using, or is it wired?
Keep me posted.
I can't stream Netfilx on my new TV. Netflix wants me to load the Netflix widget on the TV, which is supposed to produce a code for me to enter onto Netflix's web site. When I select the widget on the TV, it displays "connecting" and does not do anything else, even after 15+ minutes. I am online and used the Yahoo widget as well as others. The problem appears to be Netflix specific.
