Hi all. I have two rokus and use Unblock US with the router manually set to their DNS server. US Netflix on one roku has detected I'm using a proxy server. stangely the pc and other roku are still fine. any thoughts on how to get around this on the one device that isn't playing nicely? cheers Theo

I have 2 roku's too and similar issues - the older one has been rock solid no issues even with the latest round of blocking by Netflix however the new one brought a few months ago is a bit hit and miss sometimes it will work then sometimes 'Netflix encountered a problem' although never had the proxy message.

Could be the software version in the roku I'll need to check which versions they are running
