Prime movies and TV shows do not load after manually upgrading to fw 51.1.1.0_user_511070220. I have root and nothing is being blocked on my router. Streaming with prime worked fine on fw 51.1.0.2_user_510058520. Oddly enough, the trailers will play fine but not the actual movie.

Anyone have similar problems?

Edit: I performed a factory reset and reinstalled everything to no avail.

Check to be sure your system has a correct timestamp? I had some really weird stuff happen earlier today when I wasn't able to get NTP at boot up.

Bizarre fix
So I replaced the hdmi cable and all is well again. Apparently the cable was bad only when trying to play prime movie and tv streams. It worked fine with all xbmc stuff and everything else like games and apps. Maybe the hdmi cable is old 1.2 and not 1.4. At any rate, I'm glad it wasn't defective hardware.

Interesting. Thanks for posting the resolution.
