When did Netflix output change on the Mini?

    I notice that now it must be scaling to 1080P24.
    With 1080P24 checked in the resolutions, even when Netflix is streaming at a low 384kbps SD bitrate, the output is 1080P24.
    I just noticed this tonight since it wasn't going through the different output resolutions as it ramped up to the 1080P streams.

    I'm seeing this from all three of my Minis. Was this from the new update or was it like this with the previous update?

    Hmm.. Even the Roamio Pro is scaling to 1080P24 now with Netflix.
    On my Roamio Pro I had only 1080P60 checked. I just checked the 1080P24 pass-though option. When Netflix opens up on the Roamio Pro it is sending 1080P60, but as soon a title starts streaming it switches to 1080P24 and stays there even when netflix is streaming 720P or an SD resolution.

    With the Mini I have 1080i and 1080P24 pass through checked. It is in 1080i when Netflix starts, but as soon as a title starts streaming it switches to 1080P24 and stays there. Previously it didn't switch to 1080P24 until it was streaming a 1080P stream. Which is why I had it unchecked, because if it dropped down below a 1080P stream, it used to drop out of 1080P24 output. But now it will consistently stay at 1080P24 output no matter what netflix stream is playing. From my Roamio Pro and all three Minis.
