    A couple of months ago, I found a NETFLIX app that had the Device and Version disabled.
    My tablet played NETFLIX perfectly with this app.
    Now, NETFLIX forces an update to the new version... it will not play on my Coby.
    Has anyone found a NEW app that will disable the Device and Version check?

    Have you tried clearing data for that app or maybe reinstalling it?

    Yes, several times.
    I can browse my Queue or search, but when I try to play the app goes right back to the home page.
    Very frustrating.

    That sucks, maybe factory resetting the device, although I don't know if you want to go through all the set up and losing your apps which will have to be reinstalled. Unless someone has a better solution it seems like your only option. The market does keep track of everything you buy/download to the device though.

    Uninstall and sideload from apktop an older rev. Then be sure it is not set to auto update.

    Tried the newest update from XDA with version check disabled.
    Netflix still forces an update before it will allow the app will open.
    I contacted Android Market and they informed me that there was no way a forced update could be disabled.
    Guess I'm screwed.....

    You can download Titanium Backup and freeze up the update from coming. For that to work you need to be rooted though and I don't know if TBU will run on your device.
