Netflix on Himedia H8 1.0.9 firmware
« on: February 03, 2016, 06:39:48 AM »
Hi.

I bought the Himedia H8 specifically to view Hulu, Sling TV and Netflix on it (aside from playing my BDMV and BD iso films on my NAS).

If I update Netflix (included pre-installed on 1.0.9) to a newer APK like 3.7.1 (since Netflix 3.7.2 and later versions have Google DNS hardcoded which prevents smart dns from working properly), can I still stream successfully?

I am using a SMART DNS setting.

I really need to make Netflix USA to work for my Himedia H8 unit.

Thank you.

Honest answer, I'm not sure.

Can't you just try it out on your H8? If you want to go back to pre-installed Netflix just reinstall firmware.

Hi,

I have exactly the same setup: Smartdnsproxy https://www.smartdnsproxy.com/?afid=91fd147c14d0 + Netflix 3.7.1 + Himedia H8 1.0.9 and it works fine.

The firmware on this forum is the same as the firmware on the HiMedia site but packaged differently.

Our installation instructions are better though. Use our firmware and follow our instructions: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=527.0

In my opinion VPN is not a good option. :)
