Hello,
Warning to all PS3 users don't keep trying to view a video if it fails to load more than once. For last 6 months or so my videos would either fail to connect or take really really long to load; around 7 minutes. Sometimes my television would go black, the PS3 would beep and restart. I should have taken that as a sign. I've used the CrunchyRoll app for a long time without any problems. This started only about 6 months ago, I figured was probably a bad patch.

Eventually I learned I could get the video to start if I just kept trying at it. Well I believe doing this overheated my PS3 and the third time I tried to load Bleach the other day it turned off and is showing YLOD/blinking red light. It's a first generation PS3 I've had for many years so that may play a role in it.

So warning to PS3 users don't keep trying to load videos if they fail more than once. CrunchyRoll: please put in shorter time-out durations or some kind of cancel operation for video loads.

That's more of a fault with Playstation. If i were you, see if it's still in warranty, and if not, return it. If an app is readily available to your PS3, then it has been checked by Sony themselves and tested on similar models. You could have had a small manufacturers fault? Many of these faults are often barely noticed at all

Heheh this system is way out of manufacturer's warranty. I put blame on the CR app because I've been playing and streaming this system for many years, in the same spot it's in now, without any hiccups at all. Just in the last 6 months CR app started making my PS3 do all the weird things I mentioned before it died.
