Having trouble playing videos from Youtube in last few days?

Having trouble playing videos from Youtube in last few days?
I have had a PCh for over a month now. Had no problems watching the Youtube until now.
But for the last two days I have had constant problems. PCH accesses the content w/o any problems, but when I select the video to watch the PCH starts buffering the video endlessly... I wait for more than 5 minutes, but nothing happens. This occurs to more than a half off the vids I want to watch. I can only switch off the player (power + delete). Is there a way to cancel the request for video preview?
PCh is updated to with the latest FW.

Is this a known problem? Is anybody having the same problem? Is there a page to report the problems with MSP?

Don't want to hijack your thread, but I am having slightly different problems with YouTube and the latest firmware

I select the clip, the screen goes black for about 2/3 seconds, then back to YouTube home page again. No buffering message in my case

A hard reboot of the PCH solves it for a while, then back to the same problem again.

Here also problems with youtube and HDX-1000.
Unable to play any video. The HDX starts buffering and gives after a few seconds the message "could not play".
Any idea what could be wrong?

I don't get the message could not play - just Buffering, then back to the YouTube home page.
A reboot fixes the problem for me.

Have you tried switching TV Mode resolution to 50hz or 60hz? Sometimes that works for me

I have only just got my Popcorn Hour A-110. It's on the latest firmware and I too am having the same problems described in previous posts.

This problem still isn't fixed in the new firmware.
Is syabas working on the problem? Nothing works from the MSP, youtube, DLTV, nothing works

Same problem here...endless buffering and only way to cancel it is to unplug the PCH (110).

RE: Having trouble playing videos from Youtube in last few days?
only 1 out of every 20 youtube vids i attmpt to play will play after updating to the latest firmware. The rest just say buffering, then "can't play". The ones that do play still pause every 10 seconds, buffer for 10, pause for 10, while PC plays exactly same link perfectly

So very very frustrating. I bought this unit because of the advertised media portal playability, but just can't get it to work reliably.

Hope it gets fixed soon.
