    I can't play youtube videos. But everything else works fine.
    The tv apps, I can even download movies. Soo I'm definately hooked to the internet.
    All tests performed says that nothing is wrong. BUT after searching for a youtube video, it finds it fine. When I hit PLAY it says (There was a problem connecting to the internet. Please test your connection.) Soo when I test my connection of coarse it says everything tests good. WHAT GIVES??????

    No changes have been make to my modem or router. Everything worked before.

    thinking this is a port problem thing? (CAUSE "ALL" THE DVR's ARE NOT ABLE TO PLAY YOUTUBE VIDEOS) But, why now?
    thanks for the help in advance
