I got a new home theater system for Christmas and I have been toying with it all day. We have a netflix account so I decided to link my account to the home theater. However, when I go to launch the app, it looks like netflix is starting to load but then it gives me an error message that says, "Unable to connect to Netflix. Please try again or visit: www.netflix.com/tvhelp" with options to try again or exit. I wasn't even given the chance to enter any login information before this error popped up. What do I need to do to get this working? I have already been through all of the troubleshooting optioins on the netflix.com/tvhelp website and none of those worked.
I have the BDV-E3100 as well and experienced this issu (Netflix unable to connect error). Change your DNS settings to:
Primary DNS: 18.104.22.168
Secondary DNS: 22.214.171.124
Also turn off the IPv6 and do not use Proxy Server.
You can do this by going through internet settings. This will also fix the Hulu Plus and Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) error for "No documents exist" and gives you a white screen with error message. I hope this helps.
I called Sony support and this is exactly what they made me do. I asked the rep on the other end why do I have to do this if I'm not the first and she placed all the blame on my wireless router. I just kind of figured if I'm not the only one experiencing this problem, then it may not be the router.
