    You could buy an XL4 and use it for the 7 day trial period to see if it is better and send it back for a refund if it isn't worth it.

    I've got an Elite and Netflix was one of the reasons to switch to that platform. A couple of weeks ago I gave up on Netflix and got a Roku. The streaming was terrible on the TiVo and it's GREAT on the Roku.

    I was not at all impressed with Netflix on the Series 3. In fact I was hoping that by upgrading to the XL4, that Netflix would be better. Before I got the XL4, however, I also upgraded my TV to the Sony HX850, which has Netflix streaming capability. The Netflix implementation on the Sony is quite satisfactory. I got the XL4 and find the Netflix impmentation a tad inferior to the Sony's, so I just use the Sony for Netflix.

    I also have the sense that the quality of video for Netflix is superior when I use the Sony interface.
