Hulu Plus show not showing up in queue

Postby patfurg » Tue Feb 08, 2011 9:03 pm

If I log into hulu on my computer, I show an unwatched episode of House in my queue.
If I log into hulu on my roku player and look at the main Hulu screen where it lists what I guess are the top 6 or so shows in the "coverflow" style, I see that same episode of House available and can watch it by selecting it.
But if I go to my queue it shows "House" listed, but when I select it to play the episode, it says "0 Episodes" and doesn't have anything for me to watch. If I then go to the subscriptions to see the episodes it does not show the most recent episode.

What gives?

I'm new to this whole thing so I apologize if this is a dumb question.

I'm still pretty new, so I don't know if it is a common issue... But I'm having the same issue with "The Cape," so you aren't alone.

How long ago did the "House" episode show live on TV? You might try again tomorrow.

House was on last night (monday) and it's still not there 26-ish hours after it aired. I would suspect a delay like that except that I can access the episode online and via the main hulu plus screen.

Some of the Hulu+ content is "web only" and not available to streaming devices like Roku or PS3 and will only play on a computer.

I am not familiar with the show mentioned but if you check online with your computer you will notice the "web only" notice if it applies.

I'm having the same issue with The Cape and No Ordinary Family this week. Both appear in my Roku queue with 0 shows listed. Both say available in HD and on TV when I look in my web queue. This is definitely a new bug, this never happened before.

House was there all along, just not in your queue. I watched it really early Tuesday (6 a.m. I think) because it was on the home screen. I never did receive the email to tell me about it. I think they are having issues again.

Has anyone else seen the newest shows not having times listed or show names when the show starts. It means you can't FF, rewind, or even resume the show.

Also has anyone seen The Daily Show or Colbert Report? They haven't added new shows to those two since Thursday.

As far as the original issue (queue delay) I've been having that since day one, but it's intermittent. Instead I scroll to the subscriptions are and there it will list all shows from the current season. I check that after I know a show aired to keep from having to wait.

Another thing, is anyone else seeing older episodes returning to your queue? Something weird is going on with Modern Family. Shows from the mid season kept re-appearing and I kept getting emails telling me they were new.

Actually both the OP and I were experiencing issues where the episode wasn't even listed in the subscriptions area.
