turb: HTPC still okay.


Yes, no problem on the laptop either

It looks like the Samsung TV is doing something with DNS that Unotelly is not sufficiently masking from the BBC

My Tizen OS J series Samsung TV isn't working but the F series downstairs is so can you say what model you have?

Do you get the 'Something went wrong loading this programme' message

This is what they suggested to me - I haven't had a chance to try it yet though:

 

Can you try setting your device Timezone to UK and then try watching BBC iPlayer again? Also try switching to other DNS like Seattle and California, save settings, then reboot device.

I've done that too but it made no difference, looking at their Facebook page the issue is fairly widespread

I've tried what they suggested, not much difference (about 15% success rate on programmes playing).  Now they want me to power-cycle all my network devices but that seems like clutching at straws

Interestingly, I started a free trial of Unblock-us and this works 100%.  Also, the really slow loading times for BBC iplayer and Netflix that I've always experienced with UnoTelly are now fixed

Doesn't seem to have been an issued on dns4me.
Samsung smart TV/ amazon fire TV and pc all working fine.

Fingers x'd so far with whatever the BBC is doing.

I may hang fire before I go for Unotelly, then.

Is anyone else on here using Unblock Us?

For what it's worth, I have found that the most useful technique for me is to run everything through a mini-pc with browser (TV smart functions unused). I then use a DNS switcher on this (and also other computers) and have multiple proxies available. My paid one at the moment is Unotelly, but it can be awkward thumbing through the settings to keep changing a country back and forth. So I also use different free proxies and switch between them. Much easier.

Based on my experience this week, I'd recommend Unblockus.  I've always suffered very poor loading times for iplayer and Netflix with Unotelly, and assumed this was an inevitable feature of using the unblocking DNS service.  But the performance of Unblockus is miles better - for instance, Netflix thumbnails are there instantly, compared to appearing gradually over 3-4 minutes previously.

Interesting. I am with UnoTelly and have not experienced that kind of laggy loading on Netflix.
