I've been watching Netflix streaming via PS3 for awhile now. This month is the first time I've had any real problem and it's since Netflix added most of the James Bond back catalog. They claim these films are streaming in HD but I've had some issue streaming them on a 'slim' model PS3 on a 50" plasma screen. The picture doesn't look HD and has a certain jaggy quality to it - noticeable on text and straight lines, you can see they have that low bitrate look to them.

So I tested out the same films on a 27" LCD television via a 'phat' model PS3 and they look as I would expect them to, that is a decent picture quality without the jaggedness. I've never encountered this discrepancy before and I'm wondering if it's just the Bond films and if anyone else is having these issues. I watched "Insomnia" (listed as HD) on the plasma/slim PS3 a few nights ago and it looked fantastic.

To be specific: "You Only Live Twice" and "The Spy Who Loved Me" are the two films I've had this problem with.
