Re: Hulu Plus Connection Problems

Good thought Scott. I just ran three traceroutes, one with DNS pointing to TWC's DNS servers, one pointing to OpenDNS, and one pointing to GoogleDNS servers. All three ended up pointing me to the same IP address for http://www.hulu.com. One thing that I do see on my firewall though is that there are...

Re: Hulu acting Squirrely

I have been doing a little more testing. I got into my firewall (Untangle) and found that I had set my DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4 which are the Google DNS servers. I removed those custom entries and re-applied the config to my external NIC which reconfigured it to default to my ISP DNS ser...

Re: Hulu Plus Connection Problems

Stumbled upon this thread today as I have been plagued with these buffering issues on Hulu over the past few weeks. I'm starting to wonder if they didn't QOS the new "lower" tier and ramp up the higher "no-ads" tier... Thoughts? Anyone else in the thread having issues?

Re: Hulu acting Squirrely

The 2XS updated to the latest code, and Hulu squirrelyness persists. Speed test on phone shows now issues through wifi, switch, firewall, router, modem. The 2XS is wired via gigabit. Tested on my Chromebook via the same Wifi connection as my mobile and Hulu streams with zero issues. So, this must be...

Re: Hulu acting Squirrely

I don't know if it is coincidence or not, but for me Hulu is working better than it ever did since I started their no ad tier. I sure wouldn't be surprised if they give the "no-ad" users a higher tier of QOS as well. I think my issues started with them right after they announced that plan...

Re: Hulu acting Squirrely

I've had the same issue on my Roku 3 for almost a week now. Mine doesn't stop working though, it might start doing it right away then stop for awhile then start up again or it's fine when I first go into the channel and after watching for a while it will start up. Sometimes closing out and going ba...

Hulu acting Squirrely

Gang, My Hulu channel (Version 4.1 Build 7) seems to be acting weird on my Roku 2XS (Version 026.02E03468A). I am having to reboot the device daily because after watching Hulu for awhile, it will start buffering over and over, eventually just stopping. Connection is wired directly to a gigabit switc...

Re: Acorn TV

Have you had any challenges w/ any other channels? I was having issues w/ the News feeds the other night on one of my boxes. I didn't bother to run a packet trace to check out what was going on...

Re: Sling TV App Really Needs Work.

Agreed. The channel needs a lot of work. It seems as though it is designed for the latest & greatest devices (not 1,2,stick) as it seems processor intensive. My neighbor who is 80 seems to not mind the experience on the ROKU stick, as he is just as slow as the interface :) Once it is up and runn...

I'm having the same issues, and have reported it to HULU as well. They are getting multiple complaints.

Interesting. I'll reboot after this show and test. Thanks for the tip!

*Update: Reboot did fix the issue. Woot!

Multiple Sounds when hitting 'Home' Button

I just noticed something today on my Roku 2XS version 6.2.3321. Whenever we hit the 'Home' Button, we get a navigation 'click' sound AND we also get the ROKU 'doink' sound at the same time. This just started happening recently. Is anyone else hearing the same? I just noticed it within Hulu as well w...

Re: Roku 2 XS 6.1 (5605) Random Reboots

Understood. I figure it was redundant to post the same box info over and over in the thread, so I just referred to it as the "same box". I had another reboot again last night watching something via Plex. I have a feeling it has something to do w/ the way some of the videos are encoded. See...
