    I don't use the Netflix streaming feature much. When I first got it I used it a bit, but recently when I've tried to watch a couple of old favorites (Die Hard, Ghost Busters, etc...) I couldn't because the quality was just terrible. The smearing and blurring in even low movement scenes just makes it unwatchable to me. I've used it for a couple of TV shows as well and the HD ones, like CSI and Heros, look great. But the SD ones, like Big Brother, look bad as well.

    My bars are always at max, so I assume this is just all the bandwidth they're willing to dedicate to me, and it's just not enough. Maybe once more things become available in HD I'll use it more.

    It should be free, just like I can already search Amazon VOD on my TiVo for free.

    I use XBL for my streaming Netflix needs and sometimes stream on my laptop to watch stuff in bed with my GF.

    I wouldn't pay anyone an additional fee for usage on my Tivo. If it were free on my Tivo (essentially like it is on XBL - we don't have to pay for anything additional to use Netflix as long as you have a gold account and an Unlimited Netflix account already) then I would likely use it.

    It is free to use on TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD units, from an app in the "TiVo Central->Video On Demand" --the poll asks whether you'd pay extra to be able to browse the entire Netflix streaming library and place thngs in your Instant Queue from that TiVo app as you can with the XBL app as of the latest dashboard update (well, you can browse a limited portion of the Netflix streaming library from the Xbox now).

    I voted free because I love to leech but I doubt I would use it. I already have it as others have said on 7MC and Xbox 360 and I don't even use it there. Then again I have more than enough TV to keep me busy so I have yet to use even the feature on Netflix.

    Not sure how "love to leech" applies in this case. I voted "free" because adding that capability wouldn't be worth much to me, but if it were available I'd likely try it out. However since this sort of app (being a third-party HME app) would require that I leave my Netflix queue in order to manage it, I'm not sure how much of an advantage this would be over just picking up my laptop and managing the queue on the computer, like I do now.

    Are there apps now that people have to pay for? I don't consider donations a required application fee.

    Exactly. That's why I voted "no interest" since I couldn't see using it that being the case. If you have to manage the list in 1 app and then play the titles using a different app it kind of defeats the purpose and a computer becomes more convenient to me at that point.

    I voted for the $5 because it is cheap as a cup of fancy coffee. I try to support third party efforts. I would buy it but if it was trouble to install or use it would be like others impulse items that sounding neat at the time.

    If the only way to purchase it was via paypal than that would probably be a deal breaker.
