Our Netflix stops to buffer quite a lot even though we have a good download speed. "Test Connection" says we are well into 40 Mbps plus. Video stops but audio is still going while buffering symbol spins reading 99%. We have to exit Netflix then restart it then it works (for a while sometimes).

Anyone else having a problem like this? Anybody got a solution?

Thanks Tom

Sounds like "throttling" has returned already.;) Have you done a speed test from speedtest.net or testmy.net? It could be congestion on your local node. When does this usually happen?

For us we've recently noticed that sometimes if you rewind a few times the Netflix app locks up and you need to do a total Hopper reboot.

We have upper 50's on speedtest and Comcast.

Never tried a reboot for this problem. Will keep that in mind next time we have it, thanks.

I always do a reboot about once a week, just to get the kinks out, if any. Like any computer.

Netflix started buffering again today so we rebooted and it seems to have done the trick, thanks.

It's kinda a pain since we had to re-sign in to Netflix.

Netflix on the Hopper has buffered from day one. If we use the TV's Netflix app or watch on a computer, tablet, etc, it doesn't buffer. All of these devices are on WiFi using the same broadband connection.
