Re: Sky box problem

I live just over the boarder in Alameria and can't get ITV on 103, which is the hd transmission, try 803 the sd transmission. The old Sky box receives ITV on 103, but it is the sd tramsmission.

Re: Netflix USA

I had no problems with Netflix using Smarty DNS about 6 weeks ago. Had been using Smart DNS after the problems with BBC iPlayer on Smarty but changed back out of interest to see if there were any problems with iPlayer. Had no problems with any services but reverted to Smart DNS as I preferred using ...

Re: Netflix USA

A lot of VPN suppliers are blocked by Netflix including Smarty's. Setting up your router with the Smarty DNS settings should work, it did when I used to use them.

SorryI meant UK Netflix, there are a few not many shows on the UK site that are not on the American one.

Re: VPN for BBC iPlayer

I use SmartDNS at home and for travelling PrivateVPN as it unlocks Netflix which SmartDNS's VPN doesn't.

Re: SmartyDNS

Hi Mark,
It's not that I prefer one more than the other, both have certain benefits. However on Netflix I only get the option for the US site. I spoke to their support and he said they don't unblock UK Netflix. If that is not the case I stand corrected.

Re: SmartyDNS

Like many other I subscribed to Smart DNS, which has proved very reliable. The slight drawback is the access is to Netflix USA, which has some releases much later than the UK version and for that reason I may renew my subscription with Smarty when up for renewal.

Re: Smarty DNS

I checked their web page last night and it is still not working. Like you and a few others I am now using SmartDNS and am happy with it, so will probably stay whatever happens to Smarty.

Re: ITV PLayer app on Android stopped working

Using the App on my TV I get the option to continue without logging. May try resetting the router and a few other resets.

Re: Security weirdy

I took a 3 month subscription with SmartDNS and can't see the advantage of switching back to Smarty, but will keep it as a back up if they resolve the BBC iPlayer issue.

Re: Planet Earth 2 in 4K

No I didn't, although now after changing DNS setting in my router so many times I can do it blindfold. I wish their tecky guy told me that as I will now consider taking out a subscription. Will have a check first to see if there are any implications of setting up a static IP address. Very many thank...

Re: Planet Earth 2 in 4K

Hi Mark,
I tried Smart DNS, after Smarty had problems, but I couldn't get Netflix to work. The tech guy I spoke to said the problem is that it is a UK Netflix account. From your post I guess yours was a UK account, so I can't understand why I had problems, any info would be appreciated.

Re: Smarty DNS

Smarty VPN works fine but using it I need to cast using my phone, where as with DNS I have my router set up and can use BBC iPlayer from the TV. Also the VPN is more susceptible to problems caused by lower internet speeds.
