Has anyone else had problems using Netflix with Orcon global mode?

I have been using it with no issues for several weeks but as of yesterday Netflix doesn't work. The other global mode site like BBC etc still work fine and the Netflix problem is across all my devices.  When I try and play anything on Netflix I get an error telling me "internet or home connection problems" are preventing playback. Has anyone else had this issue recently?  I've read some discussion about it before but none of the suggested fixes seem to work for me.

I had the same issue until just now when I flushed my DNS cache by typing ipconfig /flushdns into command prompt.

I have been getting that about once per day. After waiting for a few minutes and retrying it works again. Only starting a video seems to be affected.

Okay I take it back, flushing the DNS cache seemed to only work very temporarily. To get around it I've been using a free VPN extension (ZenMate) but with global mode I shouldn't have to.... What's going on Orcon?

If you follow the guidance in the sticky post at the top of the Orcon Forum there is an email contact for the development team, better to send them what you see and see what they come back with.
