netflix not working - black screen

up till about the middle of December I was watching Netflix on my Wii just fine.  I have done no updates to my router or wii since then. Netflix works on my 360, ipod touches, and laptop, just fine.  I do not have more than 6 devices activated on netflix


All other internet features work fine - wii shop, news, weather, opera

speedtest shows 1.7 down - speed guide shows 3.2 down


Went from wifi to wired to take that out of the equation

moved the wii into a static IP and put it in the dmz to take that out of  the equation


Have reformated the wii 2x

hard reset with the unplugging everything for more than 5 min multiple times

deactivated my wii account at



When I click "start" on Netflix, the screen goes black and the remotes shut off.  The only way to get back to the main screen is to hold the power button until the red light comes on.


Anyone have any thoughts?


Thanks in advance.
