My wife and I were watching the 99 cent movie of the day last night around 10pm est and we had buffering issues on HDX. We have pretty fast internet...around 40mbps down and 3mbps up. I ran speedtest.net on my Box and it's only running at 6mbps and 1mbps up hardwired. I wanted to see if anyone changed there DNS to fix that issue. Here is the email Vudu support sent me
I wasn't able to change the DNS on my Router from Charter cable that is a SMC SMCD3GN. SMC doesn't allow the user to change there DNS. If I make the changes only on my Boxee Box and my Vizio TV will it still work right if the router's DNS isn't changed? I am also running Windows 7 home premium 64bit and didn't know if there was a way to change the DNS some how in Windows. Any help someone can give me would really be appreciatedI would start by changing your DNS on the bluray player. You can get to this by starting in the main menu (before entering VUDU, YouTube, Netflix etc.) and going to settings. Under settings, go to network set-up and chose wired or wireless, whichever you are planning on using. From here you should see the option to change your DNS, try changing it to:
You may also need to change your DNS in your router's settings as well. This should use the closest servers to stream our content to you. Please let me know if this helps or not and we'll take it from there.
