Re: reference code 300

When I try to watch a show on Hulu the commercials show but then I receive one of two error messages "a network error has occurred" or "network error reference code 300". This is only happening with Sony blu ray model no# BDP-S570 . Can someone help me? I've already unplugged & replugged it back in...
