Freezes when viewing streaming video,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony SMPN200 Network Media and Internet Streamer (Electronics)
I bought this product in January 2012. I has always had a irritating intermittent problem, this has gradually worsened. When viewing streaming video - e.g. BBC iplayer or Lovefilm, streaming pauses for up to a minute before the video continues. The device shows an apparent network problem - network speed drops to almost zero - but the problem is with the device. I have tried viewing the same content on this device, a PC and an iPad simultaneously, using the same WLAN; the Sony device freezes, while the PC and iPad carry on playing content. I have given up trying to watch videos on tis device - I am waiting for a response from Sony.

Do you think it's a heat issue over time? Have you tried the same with ethernet instead of wifi (less heat most likely as different chips used and less power to transmit over ethernet instead of wifi as I understand it)? Good luck, shame these issues are left to consumers to sort, too many times.

My unit did this but problem seems to have rectified itself following factory reset

I have the same issue on both wifi and Ethernet - it seemed ok for the first few weeks - tried factory reset etc - did you ever get response from SONY?

No. They asked for all sort of details, but never acknowledged the problem. I cancelled my Lovefilm subscription and wrote off the Sony box as piece of junk.
