Klipspringer:geekiegeek: actually I thought unblock-us etc type DNS services didnt work on TCL\Vodafone due to their proxy service. Thats probably why you are having issues. You may need to move to a VPN service.
Yea thats what I thought. On investigation though it seems it was only the Web based services via a browser that did not work with unblock-us.com.
My PS3 and Roku would seem to work fine. It would connect and start playing. But would buffer quiet considerably. And sometimes stop all together.
Yeah, I had heard that too but I seem to be able to connect to Netflix and other US services through Unblock-Us even while on my laptop. I think the problem with TCL is their crappy international speeds. Speedtests to California servers usually max out at around 5 or 6 Mbps, even though I'm on a 100Mbps service. I found VPN services to be even worse that the DNS services. Others in this thread have mentioned Unotelly - I might try that but I'm not hopeful. Feels like a step backwards switching from a 100Mbps cable service to ADSL2 so I'm keen to stick with cable if I can. Hopefully Vodafone can improve things now?
