    Anyone else having troubles with Hulu on the Surface 2?
    The Hulu Plus app regularly crashes to a BSOD (page fault in none paged area) when the app switches from the show to a commercial , or the other way around.
    Using Hulu in the Metro or Desktop browser and the video is blank when Hulu changes from show to commercial (or other way around). You can hear the audio, so it is playing.... Only way I've been able to watch is to changed the quality from whatever it is to another setting and the video shows up. But the commercials will all have no video after that.
    I recently restored by Surface 2 (it did it before and still does it after the restore) I tried Hulu before doing all the updates and it didn't have this problem in the browser.

    I haven't experienced any problems with Hulu Plus. I recommend repeatedly checking for updates, rebooting, checking again. I have found that sometimes updates get downloaded but need a reboot in order to be installed. And sometimes there is another wave of updates that appear once their prerequisites have been installed.

    I recently got back into owning a Surface 2 (after trading in my previous one a year ago) and I had forgotten how many updates there are and how finicky the system is in installing them.

    Thanks. I used your image and it worked great, However Hulu app still crashes and hulu.com in the browser still drops the video when going from show to commercial. I've found threads of others having the same issue with the surface 2 and hulu. My Surface 1 does not have these issues, but the touch screen went bad on it.
