Well, I just hooked up my Roku box to my Pioneer 151 elite, and I am sorry to say that the Roku streamed HD from Netflix is not looking too great.
It looks like an upconverted DVD. If that.
The reports I have read saying it matches Comcast HD are confusing me.
Comcast is a much better picture so far from what i have seen..
And thats not saying much at all!

Are there certain movies that are actual HD??
If so, what movie can I play from netflix that is in true 720p??

because so far, it just looks like standard being upconverted to 720p by the roku box.

please help.

2 things:

1 - did you set the screen to hdtv and not 16:9?

2 - yes only some material is in hd. when on netflix, select HD under genre on watch instantly.

Check out this HD list. I watched Elegy last night in HD on the Roku connected to a PDP-6010 and the PQ was pretty impressive. That was with a 4 bar network connection via 6 Mbps U-verse.

THANKS!!!
The whole problem was that I thought all watch instantly movies were going to be in HD now.
I did not know there was a HD genre in the Watch instantly page.
movies.

I just watched one of them from the HD genre and it looks awesome!

thanks!!
