    yup. I guess 6 devices was a movie industry stipulation or something.

    I don't have issues with netflix playback. I just wish you could search their database in addition to the instant queue

    I would guess that 6 devices will be expanded. We are a family of three and we have at least a dozen devices that could stream Netflix. We don't use all of them but as more and more devices are introduced the limit will need to be raised.

    Netflix doesn't have enough 5.1 sound for me. Doesn't make good sense either what does have 5.1 and what doesn't. The new Star Trek movie over Netflix wasn't HD and did NOT have 5.1. WTF??????????

    But yet Lost has HD and 5.1 sound.

    ??????????????

    How often does your streaming start normally? It seems like I quite often have to hit the instant replay button or fast forward or rewind buttons to get the movie to start. Otherwise it just sits there and no matter how long I leave it, the streaming never begins.

    Tivo doesn't have 5.1 for Netflix. Nothing but the PS3 does, and only on some titles.

    Part of Netflix's deals with some studios includes streaming select movies in just SD, presumably so viewers rent or buy the Blu-Ray disc instead to watch it in HD. I could see it costing Netflix more to get all of the Instant Watch movies in HD because customers won't have as much incentive to rent or purchase a movie.

    Why do I so often have to hit the 8 second replay in order to get Netflix streaming to start properly? I select my movie and then all too often it shows me the quality and then a blank screen. No matter how long I leave it, the movie never starts. This is getting old. TiVo, please fix your Netflix streaming. I also don't know why they can't show me if I've watched something previously via streaming. When going through a 25 episode TV series, it's not uncommon to forget where I last left off.

    Because it's a *stream* not a *download* like amazon/blockbuster etc.

    the data goes into a temp directory on the drive and once it's done the behavior is the same as your internet browser, temp gets dumped.

    also there's probably copyright restrictions on it as well.

    This is one of my gripes as well.
    When you add a series to your queue, it's all or nothing. You're not able to delete individual episodes. :mad:

    Then why is it that when I log in to the Netflix website it will show me exactly how much of each episode I've watched? It's not because it's not possible, TiVo just doesn't offer this functionality.

    With my LG BluRay player, the episodes of a series that are watched have a progress bar through them, and I think they're grayed out or something too.

    Umm.. this works on the Wii just fine. It remembers where you left off. The Netflix server, after all, knows what it has previously served to you. It's quite easy to tell what you've watched and what you haven't.
