I'm not really sure where this problem is, but it only happens with my roamio, so I'm posting here for troubleshooting suggestions.
New to netflix. Set up the account on the roamio and mini last week, and did some watching on another tv over the weekend. Came home and wanted to watch on roamio.
The Panasonic non-smart TV connected to the roamio is > 5 years old but is 1080p. I can get the specs if necessary.
When I either start the netflix app from the what to watch screen, or if I go into a show and pick to watch it on netflix the same thing happens. The netflix start screen looks fine, I pick my profile, and the home page for the show looks fine. But when I start to play the show it displays it in the top left corner of the tv screen (a bit more than 1/4 total area) and no sound. All the other displays up to this point had been full screen.
When I go to my mini on another tv (a new tv which is also 1080p) I can play the netflix shows without a problem- full screen and audio function correctly.
The roamio tv is not a smart tv, but through the bluray player I can use its netflix app and get the playback to work, but this is an old app and doesn't have profiles, and since this is my daughter's account I would prefer to keep my viewing separate from hers.
I've logged into netflix and looked at the settings for my profile, the playback is set to auto. I think this is what I would prefer to leave it at, as I will be using a variety of devices with different internet speeds. I also saw tips on setting the roamio to only use one output resolution/frequency, and I will try that. But my symptoms don't match those which had this solution.
Does anyone have an idea what my problem might be?
