    When I try to play video from sources other than EPIX on my Dish TV blockbuster online, I get a message 'download started', then rightaway in my notifications I see there is some widevine file loaded. Clicking on it brings up a black screen. Only EPIX movies play. HBO and others won't. Has anyone faced and possibly solved this problem?

    After some more research, I see that Widevine Media Transformer is a DRM plugin used by some but not all sources on Blockbuster Online, notably HBO, Cinemax, and Starz. Google TV doesn't have the widevine program (at least not the Sony bluray or the Logitech Revue). Seems peculiar because Google owns widevine and the widevine web page indicates that they support Google TV.
