FYI - Response from Netflix regarding video quality display:
Thank you for your email. I appreciate the time you’ve taken to provide us with your feedback and comments.
I understand your frustration regarding the removal of the quality display feature on the Sony Playstation 3. We are constantly making changes to the service, removing features that aren’t used by a large majority of members while iterating on features that are more widely used. Please note, the quality display has not been completely removed as your Internet connection rate (kbps, Mbps, etc.) is still visible at this time. For more context, when you start playing a movie or TV show, we will automatically choose the video quality to give you the best image possible based on the speed of your Internet connection. The faster and more stable your Internet connection is, the higher the quality that we can deliver. In order to receive DVD quality video and audio without interruptions, your Internet Service Provider will need to provide a stable Internet connection that can maintain at least 3 Mbps to the Netflix servers for the duration of the film. For HD quality, you will need at least 4.7 Mbps.
