I think you are misunderstanding me. I am not saying that what you
are seeing is what it should look like. I'm only saying that what I
am seeing is consistent with what it should look like. If you are seeing more jerkiness than what I described, it could be either an issue with your configuration or an issue with the way Silverlight runs on your configuration. If it's the latter (which is a possibility) then it is an issue with Silverlight and that would be on Microsoft to fix.
FWIW, I only see slight judder on the SL demo site as well (consistent with playing 24 fps content at 59hz).
Sorry, I thought you were trying to tell me that I was seeing normal 24 Hz judder, and I got the wrong end of the stick.
If I were you I'd go out and buy a lottery ticket since you must have a very lucky configuration.
I was unable to get a configuration that worked. It wasn't for lack of trying different combinations:
3 different machines (2 Q6600's and a i3-530)
2 different OSes (Vista and Windows 7)
2 different OS targets (x86 and AMD64)
2 different Silverlight versions (3 and 4)
3 different video cards (ATI 4850, Intel GPU and older nVidia)
2 different networks (at home and at work)
2 different hosts (7MC and IE)
Countless configuration settings (power, graphics, process priorities, etc)
I agree that a fix from MS (or perhaps Netflix) is needed, but until that materializes I've given up on it. The truth is that my $150 BD player has far better Netflix playback than my well equiped PCs, which seems sad but it's true.
