I've got one of those chromecast (mostly to play with) devices and am interested in the difference when you consider that chromecast is wifi and my 8500 is ethernet cable.

I notice a big difference with HBO - even despite using wifi (although my router is right under my tv). I did buy the chromecast ethernet adapter though which is set to arrive this week.

The only thing which is not grayed out is the Cell Light setting if I enter the menu.
The only way I have been able to change the other settings is to use Apply Picture Mode->All Sources on another "input" but hopefully that is not the only way, or is it?

Interesting, I thought the hub's Netflix looked better than Roku3's. Have you compared hbo go to hbo via WMC?
