Is it easy enough to reset the box back to the home (irish) settings.
Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately, I'm no expert. I'm just trying to figure it out like everyone else. But it doesn't seem to make any difference to the RTE Player. I just logged out of Netflix USA and I was able to watch RTE Player without any hassle. Not sure about 4OD but I'd guess it is the same.
There is some debate about the payment thing but I'm almost sure that it won't cost anything. Plenty of ppl signed up without ever visiting the unblock site let alone starting a trial and it has worked fine. So I don't expect to be charged but you never know, it could stop at any stage and require payment to continue.
It's really easy to switch back. You just go to the DNS settings and switch them from the manual values that you entered to Automatic. Then restart PS3 and wipe Netflix details and your back on the Irish service. Takes about 30 secs.
Hope that helps.
