    Netflix is prompting me to update the app, but there have been comments about it saying the update breaks the app. Has anyone used Netflix on the DX before and after the most recent update without playback problems?

    Thank you,

    Matt

    Oh, good. Thank you. That's one person who has safely updated Netflix.

    This wouldn't be a big deal if I knew of a way to roll back to a previous version of an app. Given how often updates cause problems for people, it's too bad the Market doesn't have that function.

    I've been getting connection errors either after selecting a show to watch or shortly after the show has started to play.

    Out of my last 4 attempts to watch a show, I have yet to be able to watch a show in its entirety.

    Did this problem begin after updating? Did Netflix work before the update?

    Also, on a side note, Verizon is throttling users in congested areas who have gone over 2GB. Is that happening to you?

    Also, I've found that toggling my radio with EasySwitch usually corrects connection hangups.

    It happened after the update, worked fine before the update.

    I don't know how "congested" the area I live in (Fargo, ND), but I doubt it would be "congested" to the point where Verizon is throttling it, and I have not exceeded 2 GB of use per month.

    I have tried to use wifi and not use wifi and has happened with both connection types, but have not tried any other potential remedies...

    So what's one yay and one nay. I don't like those odds.

    I tried HDMI out to my television and I got nothing at all. I had to use RealHDMI, which only uses about half of the screen. Wonder what I'm doing wrong.

    That's two fearless souls who have braved the dreaded app update and not regretted it.

    I updated, too. Playback still works fine, and the ui is still an ugly, inaccurate mess. No difference I can see on the DX between the newest version and the last.
