I seem to be having some peculiar PSN problems. I noticed, this past Friday, that I couldn't use Vudu. I was able to start the app, and browse selections (after an abnormally long screen load time), and if I try to preview a title, it times out. I tried the connection test from within Vudu and this also comes back with an error message.
Next, I tried accessing the PS Store, but cannot. I'm prompted to download an update to access the store, but the download screen just sits there, and eventually I get an error message with that too.
On the other hand, I AM able to sign into the network, use Netflix, and even play a game online (Crysis 2).
Any ideas what's going on? PSN issue, or something else?
The error message I'm getting from the PS store update download screen is 80710723.

i'm also having this issue. netflix works online gaming works. vudu work but really really slow i run vudu speed test i get nothing for speed. i try to download hustle kings patch and zen pinball 2 patch and it says downloading then finally after waiting it starts and say i have 1362mins remaining for a 16mb patch. i then goto psn store try downloading a game trailer and the same thing happens i get 642mins remaining for a 78mb file and the time keeps going up.
so i'll try a game demo and after going thru all the b,s, of confiming i finally get to download it. i choose download and guess what for a 998mb file it was 5min remaining and downloads and installs but wait i press x to start and theres a patch and it says 945+min remaining for a 6865k file.
i reset modem, router, brought home a gadget to test my ethernet line, ran download file test on my computers, no buffering while streaming online videos. i get 30down and 5up. my ps3 is in dmz, static address. after re-checking everything i call sony and explain in detail about the problem they said they can help me by opening so ports on my router. i told them why when i have it in dmz. so they tell me its my isp because psn is up and running fine..
side note. before the psn maintence i had no problem becasue i downloaded the free ps+ game that released that tues before maintence and it work and patch worked for the game also. after psn maintence tues arrives and another free game for ps+ game download fast but patch was a no go. told the sony rep and he blamed my isp because the psn is up and working fine.
i'm thinking something got messed up during the maintence that did it. i mean they say psn will be down for 12hrs but then it lasts until early saturday morning..
