Has anyone tried this link in an unrooted unit? I found it in a youtube video claiming to allow Hulu viewing in the Sony NSZ-GT1. My unit is still in the mail so I can't try it myself. Just access it through chrome and make sure to set your user agent to android.

This is the youtube video link:

I tried this on my rooted unit and it worked for a little bit, but very slowly and clunkily. More problematic: like one of the commenters on the youtube video, it kicked me out after about 10 minutes with a "verification error."

WooHoo! I just did it and got it to work. It took a few tries; I got sent to Google search a couple of times, but I just thought maybe I mistyped so I put it in again and it worked! Then I set up a link in my "All Apps" for it by clicking the star button on the remote and adding it to my home screen. YES!!
BUT, I have to sign in every time. It does not remember any of my information, preferences or my queue. I have to search for what I want. I've gotten the verification errror message one time. The good news for me is that it's in my bedroom so I use it less often and I have DirecTV, Amazon Prime and Netflix, too, so I'll only need it once in a while. I subscribe more for my kids and grandkids than for myself. I like books.

Here is the process I went through:

Reports of this working always puzzle me, I have tried it a few times the last couple of years, including again yesterday. It works for about 10 minutes and stops with a validation error. This happens no matter how I try, default, generic or Android user agent. If there is a specific requirement I am missing, it would be nice to determine what it is.
