Check your network throughput. One good way to do this is to set up a VUDU account -- which is free until you actually rent some content. With a VUDU account, you can now go into the VUDU app to My VUDU > Info & Settings > Network Speed Test. See what sort of speed you are getting, and also whether it is constant or keeps bopping up and down in speed. If you see a problem here you know there's still some issue in your network setup that you've not yet addressed.
I have had the same issues the OP reports, and my network speed is always over 12 Mbps. My 103 is connected to the cable model/router via Ethernet, as is a Roku 2--and I have zero problems accessing Netflix with the Roku even when Oppo repeatedly tells me "this title cannot be played." Also, the Roku required me to sign on exactly once, the day I hooked it up. In contrast, I have had to do this a number of times with the 103. No, there is definitely something screwy with the Oppo's Netflix app, and erasing and then resetting to factory defaults didn't fix this. I have no issues with Vudu, YouTube, or the Berlin Phil apps on the Oppo--it's just Netflix
