Sorry, been really busy for a couple of weeks.  the script error was external - yay, fixed.  The search was an API change somewhere along the way and it sounds unlikely to be fixed (same as we probably wont see multiple profile support in the WMC version). 

I've been experimenting with using my MCE HTPC as the TV input to the Xbox One.... that way I get Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, FOX, SKYPE etc on the Xbox, and media playback, photos, live and recorded TV via the TV mode.  Seems to work OK, but I really need a new TV as the downscaled resolution I'm having to run is a problem.  FullHD all around would make everything perfect.

Thanks for sorting the script error, appreciated.  In terms of search, not such a big deal in my eyes.  It was always a pain to try and search using a remote anyway.  I normally just search for stuff on my iPad and either add it to my watch list if it is US content, or watch a few seconds of it if it is from another region so it shows in my recently watched list.

I'm doing search in a similar way, only using the surface or windows phone, both of which have Netflix apps :)

SEARCH: stumbled across this thread which offers a fix - http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums/viewtopic.php?p=78733#p78733  might take this information internally and see what, if anything, can be done seeing as its just looks to be a file hosting issue

LMFAO.  After a bunch of searching and debugging, I came up with a simple solution.  This email tipped me off:

OK, just tried the search solution there and can confirm it fixes the search problem :-)
