I've been using netflix for a few years now and about 3 weeks ago it started freezing. If I go to netflix and select a movie it will play just fine, but if I try to pause, rewind, stop, etc.. it will freeze the system and I have to push the power button to turn my ps3 off and restart it. I rebuilt the data base and re installed netflix but still the same prob. I also cannot install the resident evil 6 demo but expendables 2 installed fine. All other system features seem to work fine, dvd and blue ray playback work fine, gameplay seems fine too.
I have been having the same issue as of lately and it is very annoying. This only happens, as you mentioned, when I try to pause or fast forward on Netflix. Hulu Plus works just fine for me as well as everything else I normally do on the PS.
If anybody has some help that would be great, if not I suppose I will just wait it out.
I have been having the same problem with netflix. just waiting it out doesnt work. im wondering if i should reset the playstation? or is this just a netflix problem? dont know how many reports i have sent to playstation about having to restart my system. im sure it a lot. please help.
I am having the same exact issues. I had a 40 gb I totally screwed up messing around with it. I just went and got a new system today the 160gb, and it's the same BS but only on Netflix. At first it was freezing with I would first log on to Netflix and it also freezes when you try to fast forward, rewind etc etc. Glad I am not alone here. It freezes and nothing works, you have to reset the system on the console and then you get a file corruption error. I called Sony and they don't know anything. Is anyone getting the corruption error when they restart?
Same issue here. Netflix freezes, Hulu works fine, RE6 Demo doesn't install, Payday The Heist doesnt install, etc. I rebuilt the database, uninstalled and reinstalled the netflix app, quick formatted and did a full format on the system. I spoke to multiple PS3 cONSULTANTS AND THEY SEEMED TO BELIEVE i WAS THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS ISSUE. None OF THEM SEEMED TO THINK THAT THE LATEST UPDATE COULD BE THE CAUSE (4.25). But rather my ISP is the cause. I contacted Netflix, Armstrong (my internet provider), next they suggested that I check to see if all the ports are open on my firewall through my wireless router. I don't think that's the problem because I have not reconfigured any settings but I will give it a check... Please let me know if anyone finds out more. Thanks.
I've had the same problem I just noticed it about a week or 2 ago but it locks up every time I ff or rewinding and sometimes on choose your netflix experience. Tried everything in the book nothing helps im pulling my **bleep** hair out on this, I have other ways to play netflix the problem just pisses me off. Starting to think its a ps3 firmware problem my ps3's about a month old my fat 80 gig just died so im not liking Sony to much at the moment.
