Proxy in Transparent - ignorning ACLs sometimes.

transparent proxy, not using SSL MITM
I am having trouble with ACLs and letting things through.
Example 1: I have a Roku player used for Netflix. Unless I enter it's IP under General >> Transparent Proxy Settings >> Bypass proxy for these source IPs the movie will not play. If I enter the Roku's IP under ACLs >> Unrestricted IPs it seems to not make a difference and will not allow playing the movies. However, if I enter it's IP under ACLs >> Banned host addresses then it is not able to browse the Internet at all. It doens't seem consistent. If I'm running squid3 in transparent mode, am I only supposed to make use of the settings under the General >> Transparent Proxy Settings section?
Example 2: I have an iDevice that I use to stream online AM radio content. Once again, if I enter the iDevice's IP under General >> Transparent Proxy Settings >> Bypass proxy for these source IPs the content will play fine; however if I try to discover the URLs and/or IPs of the destinations the app is streaming from and then list them under ACLs >> Whitelist the app fails to connect and nothing is streamed.
So with these two examples it seems that if I'm using Transparent mode, I cannot use any of the features on ACLs tab. Is that correct? I do restart the squid3 service each time I make change to the service.
