The debacle appears to be continuing. I can't assure you this will work but one of the things that may help is to use the Google DNS (servers.) We note that in the CNET Networking Forum in the "Samsung owners start here" tips thread.
I know, I know, who wanted to become a network engineer?
Wondering if you folks can help me out. I've just bought a new 8000 series samsung tv and I'm having one issue with the smart hub that's driving me crazy! When I click on Netflix, I get a message "unable to connect to Netflix, please try again." All the other apps work fine, and I can connect to Hulu, Vudu, the browser, etc all with no issues. I also got a free samsung blu-ray player and on that version of the smart hub, I can connect using the Netflix app!!! argh!!! I've talked to Netflix, Samsung, and Fios my internet provider and all of them are absolutly no help. Some other information: the version of Netflix on the smart hub is 3.1.001, the verion of Netflix on the blu-ray is 2.0.1, my service provider is Fios, my fios router is the actiontec. ANy help would be greatly appreciated! thanks mal
