I have Comcast Blast at 50Mbps down. Both Tivos (Basic and Plus) hardwired via ethernet (one on a 100 Mbit link, the other on GigE).
Looks like on the Roamio, the Tivo will max out the Netflix bandwidth based on the Video settings you have.
For example, on my Roamio Basic, it's hooked up to a 720p TV.....so in video settings I only have 720p selected. Netflix on this box will top out at 3000 kbps (1280x720). However, depending on the time of day, sometimes it has a hard time getting to 3000.
However, on my Plus...that's hooked up to a 1080p TV that supports the 1080p24. In settings I have 1080p and passthrough selected. On that box Netflix will top out at 3850 kbps (1920x1080). I then switched my video settings on that TV to just 720p and Netflix tops out at the 3000 kbps.
What's interesting is, I have two Apple TVs (3rd gen), one hooked up wireless and one hardwired. Both of these will go all the way to 5800 (1920x1080) on BOTH TVs.
I'm testing using the Example Short (http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Ex...trkid=13462100
Is anyone else able to get their Tivos to go higher than 3850?
