Just sharing here with you which I've been trying to make the Netflix service work again with our beloved console ;-)
Well, I don't want to see anymore...
"Sorry, the PS2 game console is no longer supported by Netflix. Please check the Netflix website at netflix.com/NetflixReadyDevices for information on different ways to watch instantly. Please reset your system."
First I picked up my PS2 Netflix NTSC disc (SLUS_219.49) and ripped using IMGBURN, producing an ISO file of 1.3 GB.
In order to make it smaller and useful for my "trial and error" initial approach (which I'll explain better below), I used the USBUtil v2.1 Ultimate nice RIP feature to reduce its file to 33.MB (How? File -> Open ISO -> Select ISO -> Mouse Right Button -> RIP ISO -> Extreme Method).
Well, I've realised that Netflix isn't working with OPL (neither .ISO nor .ul files) but it is working with PS2ESDL (v0810_OB), via .ul file.
That's why I used the ISO2OPL tool, which created the needed "ul.cfg" and "ul.672000E6.SLUS_219.49.00" files.
So the "ul.672000E6.SLUS_219.49.00" file is the object of my "trial and error" initial approach (in another words: "find and "replace").
Basically, which I'm trying to do is replacing the "PS2" strings by "PS3', "WII", "Wii" (i.e. the consoles currently supported by Netflix) in order make the streaming service works again with PS2.
Well, after many tries, I realised that there is an "NFPS2-001-" string (which occurs 3x times inside .ul file). When they are replaced - for instance - by "NFPS3-001-" the Netflix OSD gives us the following message right after Member Sign In screen:
"Cannot connect to Netflix. Please try again later. If the problem persists, please visit netflix.com/tvhelp on your computer. Try Again"
This is was just the little step I've made; Now it's time to use Wireshark on my PS3 and PS2 consoles in order to compare the results on my wifi network and deduce the extra steps to do, but unfortunately I still haven't enough skill to go further... So I'd be grateful if someone could give some hints.
Now I gotta go!
PS: If the network cable isn't connected I got this
