    Hi All,

    I'm not sure if someone else posted an issue like this, sometimes my search skills rather suck.

    Either way, I have an iPad 3g, and with the netflix app and ABC app (over wifi, not 3g), anything I watch, be it a show or movie, the players in both app will cut back to the main app window stopping the program, after a given amount of time.

    Just in case my explanation sucks, here is an example:

    Today I was watching wargames on netflix, about 30 minutes into the movie, it stopped playing and brought me back into the main netflix app.

    In the abc app, I was watching a show, and about 40 minutes into the show (5 minutes or so left) it did the same ting, cut back to the main ABC app.

    Is this a setting in both apps that I am missing? Does it sound like I got a defect or something?

    Any thoughts would be great.

    I've been going through and watching Lost on the ABC app, and Mythbusters on the Netflix app along with a couple of movies and haven't had a single problem like this. I'm using a 16gb wifi model.

    I had this happen once with Dances with the Stars (wife not me), it would happen every single time. But when I queued up any other program it played fine. Weird, but the next day it played fine. I think it's just the ABC server gets glitched like that sometimes.
