Using a computer for netflix?

Q: Using a computer for netflix?

As usual a person gets questions from friends that are beyond the person expertise. Often the questions offer only sparse detail but I will try to ask an at least listenable question.

Basically the user subscribes to NETFLIX for movies which he can watch on his monitor, save to memory / disc or receive a CD later. He wants to use a wireless transmission from his computer to a TV some distance from the computer. Does this make any sense? Is it possible and how?

By the way, if one had a monitor and TV that both use a computer how is it cabled and controlled. By switch?

Pardon my ignorance, but I said I would ask for him.

Thanks,
Rbuck

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I dont think he will do that very easily

Depending on the Monitor and PC and TV
If only have a VGA out - then yes a switch
the VGA cable to the switch and then two VGA cables - 1 cable ---> TV if it has a PC input 2 cable ---> Monitor
BUT
if the PC has a HDMI output and a VGA you may be able to connect both up

I would find out make and model of the TV
What inputs it has, PC input
then if it has a LAN connection - as you may be able to connect to a network

Make and model of the PC
what outputs on the graphic card
HDMI, VGA, DVI

Is there a way to password lock my computer while I'm falling asleep to Netflix so that no one else can use it? I want to be able to fall asleep to the lights/colors/sounds, but if someone in my house takes my computer before it falls asleep and after I'm asleep, I don't want them to be able to use it even for other shows or surfing the web. I don't want anyone using my computer without my permission. Can anybody help me?

Hello,

I have done two re-formats on my computer attempting to get rid of this blue screen error, but it keeps coming back (almost instantly). I think it usually happens when I watch netflix and close the computer without shutting down first; but it has happened a few times when I wasn't previously watching netflix.

It only occurs when I'm starting the computer, but not every time.

The last time it happened, I kept ignoring the blue screen and it eventually got to the point where I wasn't able to use the computer (couldn't save files, wouldn't connect to internet, etc.).

Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated. I attached my dump files, but to be perfectly honest, I don't know anything about fixing computers. So please baby step me through fixing it if you can

Thank you so much,
Shannon

Welcome aboard.

► You have two antivirus programs installed. AVG and McAfee. Your crash is directly blaming AVG.

Code:
fffff880`07c3c7c8 fffff880`06215796Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\avgidsdrivera.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for avgidsdrivera.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for avgidsdrivera.sys
avgidsdrivera+0x15796
It is Driver Reference Table - avgidsdrivera.sys.

So you must to uninstall AVG. At the same time, McAfee is a higher level crap, and a very well known problem causer. Uninstall McAfee too. For best protection, use Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows, with Free MBAM.

► Also, Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.
► What I have also noticed, you have some old device drivers installed.

ATI Display Driver:

Code:
c:\windows\system32\drivers\atikmdag.sys (8.1.1.921, 5.76 MB (6,037,504 bytes), 8/18/2009 6:48 AM)

When streaming Netflix, my computer is registering as a new device each time I play a movie. The Device ID is different when I check on all my registered devices (the only device that uses my account is my one computer). I have not changed any settings, reinstalled Windows, or made any drastic changes in the system. I do not use a router and am using Cox Communications as my ISP.

Does anyone know why this is happening? Does anyone have a solution?

I have been using Netflix for a few months. What I have noticed is that I will reach my device activation limit (6 is the max, I believe) rather quickly--specifically, it will tell me I have reached it after streaming 6 shows/movies. Apparently, my computer is being registered as a new device every time I stream a new show/movie.

I am wondering why this is, and how it can be fixed. The only solution I have found is to deactivate every device I have registered with Netflix (which is just my one computer I use for streaming)--only then will it allow me to watch another show/movie. This is a hassle, and if this is the only way, then that is alright. What I am most interested in is the reason my computer could be registering as separate devices like this. I can think of a few possibilities:
-Computer is registering by a dynamic IP address set by the ISP (I do not use a router)
-Computer is registering as a new device by some other means
-Silverlight is somehow acting fishy (which this does not seem like a local problem like a program on my computer)

It must be noted that the device ID number listed on Netflix is different with each registration of a new device (even though it is the same device every time).

I am currently in Louisiana. I am using Cox Communications as an ISP. I do not use a router. I pay my own utilities (so this is not an aprt complex-specific problem as far as I can tell). This same issue occurred when streaming on a friend's Netflix account, so it is no... Read more

I have a VPCCW17FX Sony Vaio. For the last week or so, I have been unable to watch Netflix videos without constant freezing and the sound popping and buzzing (after a minute or two it continues playing). I'm not sure whether or not this started before or after I uninstalled/reinstalled my internet drivers, (midterms stopped my video viewing cold) but they shouldn't be related, should they? Sometimes after this error, I get a popup message that says my NVIDA graphics card stopped working. (I havent been able to capture the exact wording.) I was going to try un/reinstalling the graphics card, but when I went to, I found I wasn't sure what to do. Do I do it to "NVIDIA GeForce G210M" under display adapters, or "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" under Sound, video and game controllers. In addition, "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" is actually listed 4 times in my device manager. Which one do I uninstall? Each one says that the best driver is already installed.

Am I even trying to do the right thing? Is there something else I should do? Youtube, Hulu, and Amazon videos work fine. Only Netflix is causing this problem.

I got a new samsung 4k tv recently this year with builtin netflix. And I have a sony dvd player with builtin netflix. So its not a must. And I don't travel much. But I am on the 29th to visit my sister. I have a SAMSUNG NPRV-515-A01US I got in 2011 for 350 plus tax. Still great after 4 years.

But I noticed netflix was very choppy. Its only dual core, 1366x768, and AMD RADEON HD 6310. Plus 8gb ram. Came with 4gb and I added 4 more. It is an AMD-E350. If I lower the netflix settings (watching from browser) to 720p it is fine and no issues. But not sure if I can live with 720p or versus 1080p it makes a huge difference. And I have no builtin bluetooth in this laptop. So no good. I mean there are dongles but I keep loosing those as they are so small.

E350's cam out 2011 ish and are really old now.

Would upgrading to like this for example help. Its only 6gb ram. But 6 is enough. But its quadcore and i3. Even if its a older generation i3 (not sure how to tell) its still probably loads better than my e350. Or since its the same 1366x768 it is probably not making much difference. And video card not sure what it has either.

Or is it more cpu and ram. Having quad core versus dual core and I3 versus E350. Where is the bottle neck.

Hello,

I am watching Netflix on my PS3 on my LG HDTV (not sure the model but it was purchased brand new in 2011 it was like 400 bucks )and everyone once in a while It flickers or flashes black for a quick second and then goes back to normal.. It almost sounds like a power surge but it's not because nothing else is affected and it's only happening during Netflix or at least it hasn't happened during anything else like playing games and what not. Also it never happened when watching Netflix on my PS3 on a SDTV. It only started happening on the HDTV. Also I am running on wireless and when I had it on my SDTV it was running through Ethernet. Too I am just in the next room over and get excellent signal, on my PS3 it showed 11.1 or 11.4 MBPS Download and 2 mbps upload and when I was wired it was like 14 mbps DL and maybe 3 mbps upload.so it still has good speed/connection. So why does it flicker every once in a while for just a second and then go back to normal. so what could be making it flicker/flash like this.

Thanks,
 

A:Netflix PS3

I assume you are watching HD streams on the HD TV AND you are now using wireless. In which case, your bandwidth has increased, and your capacity/reliability has decreased. I'd suspect you are simply seeing an issue with your wireless.

With the PS3 on the HDTV, use a wired connection and see what happens.

Hey everyone,

I was curious of how Netflix makes there money and how they avoid any legal issues. Essentially it seems they use other companies/people's media and content to make money for themselves. Wouldn't they need to pay some kind of royaltie fees to the people who own the media?

Also, what kind of servers would they need to use to handle the kind of stress they get from the thousands of people who are streaming content at once? How would they handle those issues?

I only ask because I was thinking of hosting some videos (not copyrighted material) on my own virtual server so some of my facebook friends can have exclusive access to it. It's for a video game clan. Thanks again!
 

A:Not Sure Where to put this> Netflix question?

If you want to share videos with your friends, I would suggest using YouTube. You should be able to set up a private channel that only the people you want to view have access to.

Netflix negotiates with movie studios and production companies to be able to stream the content that do. That's why not all movies and television shows are available. Not all companies give Netflix the right to do it. But this doesn't have anything to do with your videos if you're the one who made them.

I have been having an issue only with Firefox and Netflix (it works with Explorer, but ideally I'd rather use Firefox). MOST (though not all of the time) when I try to play a video on Netflix, I get a black screen and nothing happens. I've tried every single step on the Netflix troublshooting suggestions for this problem, and none of it works.

When I called Netflix, after talking to me for a while, the tech told me that "Silverlight is not hitting Firefox proplerly" (whatever that means). The guy gave me another phone number to call (regarding Silverlilght -- so it was Microsoft as it turned out) and assured me that all I had to do was call those people and my problem would be magically fixed. Microsoft told me that they couldn't help me because the issue was with Firefox, not Explorer.

Does anyone know about this issue or can help or give me additional suggestions of what to try?

Hello; I've been trying to get on my Netflix account today and it refuses to work. I click on the application and it'll load; Once it's finished loading, a message will pop up saying " Check your account: Netflix is Not Currently Available To You". The app was working fine less than a day ago. Thank you for your time.

I want to hook up my big screen TV to my Vista-run computer to watch streaming movies.
What hardware do I need to look for?
 

A:viewing Netflix

Are you wanting to do this with existing hardware or do you intend to get a new media center PC for the job? If existing hardware, tell us what you have, already.

I just did a fresh install of vista and updated all my drivers last thursday and since then I've been running everything fine. I play L4D, half-life 2 perfect and for hours on end. Then today I got a free trial with netflix, and I had to install microsoft silverlight to view the instant videos online. After about 30 minutes into the program my computer shuts off. No BSOD, no restart, just shuts completely off. I had no idea what happened. So I go ahead and start up the video again and watch it for another 30 minutes, and my computer shuts off completely. So I'm stuck in between hardware and software issue, especially since it hasn't ever occurred before. I'm also using firefox to stream netflix, if that makes any difference.

Here are my specs:

Rosewill 600W (It's new and I've been using it since thursday)
Asus M2N32-SLi Deluxe Wireless Edition mobo
XFX 8600 GT XXX vga
2 sticks of 1 GB OCZ DDR2 800
320 GB Desktar 7200 RPM HDD

I have yet to make absolute sure if my computer is overheating or not, so I'm going to test it again with netflix and use speedfan to check the temps. I'll update in a second.

EDIT: I had the speedfan window up while watching the video. Every temperature was under 50C, and it was even worse this time; it only lasted a minute and then it shut down completely without reboot or warning.

windows 8 is so aggravating? All I want is to update Netflix not everything.
I can clear all selected, but when I try to select Netflix it goes into another info screen instead of selecting

DOES NOT WORK
To single select apps for updating in the windows store follow these steps:

On the app update page, all apps are selected for updating by default. Tap 'clear' at the bottom of the screen to deselect all.To single select, long tap an app, then slide down. This seems to be the secret way to single select in the metro interface. Repeat with additional apps to multi select.Tap update to update selected apps.

DOES NOT WORK

Hi
I made so modifications in my computer : I added an intern HDD (It was external before, but the block was broken), I added a NAS and some softs.
Now, I can't look a film on netflix, after some minutes (about 10), the system crashes with BSOD.
I tried to stop each not mandatory process (including those that I installed this afternoon), without change. So, it could come from the HDD that I installed internally, but it would be surprising.
Well, attached, there are the minidump as required in the posting instructions.
Please help!

Thanks

Niko

All of the videos on Netflix are dark . I have an LG TV that isn't a smart TV. Nothing else is affected. Is there a simple solution?
 

A:Netflix videos

How are you getting Netflix on a non smart TV? Netflix is an internet only service not TV over the air
Are you using the TV as a monitor on the computer ? or do you have a separate set top box for Netflix

I have moved this from site comments to web & email as a more suitable place
Site comments is for comments & requests for help with using TSG ( this forum) not websites in general

I just signed up with Netflix and every time I go to watch a movie I get a MS popup stating "a website" wants to access wisptis.exe. Before it was a Pen and Tool Input Component box. I know that it's related to my HP TouchSmart pc as it's a touchscreen. I've tried to end process, deleting the wisptis.exe file and got the "You must use TrustedInstaller" box. Tried changing permissions as I'm owner and admin. Nothing. I don't have any visible signs of Wacom in Programs nor in any C: files to delete.

I recently had my system wiped (virus) and the tech only put in MS files in which was fine by me as I didn't use most of HP stuff. I'm still able to do touch screen things.

Thanks!
