By the way, the quality on the native Netflix app is superior to what you'll get from the ROKU Stick Netflix app, so you should use the native app for Netflix -- and in fact for ALL the cases where there is a native app on the player.
Bob, for some reason, on Netflix I routinely get 480 or 720 resolution on the Oppo 103 app, while getting 1080 on the same Netflix source material played over a Roku 2 XS immediately afterwards. Both the Oppo and the Roku are connected via Ethernet and are right next to each other.
