    Anyone get HBO or Hulu video to watch a show?

    On HBO I see the first few seconds of a show and then the screen goes black. Audio still works. HULU, audio works but black screen right away.

    Going to try a second TV today to see if any different. Codecs and all that could be an issue.

    On the new gen? I've had a couple of experiences like that on the ATV3 with other video services but a reboot helped. It's rare that it happens, but it does.

    4th gen. Rebooted all the things. It's funny because you see the picture briefly before it goes to black. I would think it was an app except it happens in 2 apps. Both are DRM video. Youtube works great. I have seen this type of oddity with dvd region/codec incompatibility. Sometimes in those cases it could be audio that didn't work or video.

    Is your ATV wired or wireless? I played both Hulu and Netflix videos again tonight with no issues. My ATV is hooked to my wireless network.

    maybe delete the app and re install?

    or try a hard wired connection just to test?

    I would try wired just as a test if that's an option for you. I would think if this was a widespread issue, there would be many more posts about it.
