This new upgrade is scheduled to hit in 2 weeks & has me a bit worried, since the communication between Netflix & Microsoft seems to be lacking... ;-) The Netflix app in WMC is awesome, but it sure does seem to have issues when Netflix makes a change.

I got moderately excited when I saw the first line of the subject,thinking someone at Microsoft or Netflix stepped up to modernize the interface.

I think it is more of a Netflix change. I am worried that Microsoft has no idea its coming so it will screw up the Netflix plugin in WMC... Time will tell.

It did get screwed up, but fortunately it's an easy fix. Login to your netflix account online, click on "My List" (new Instant Queue), in the top right corner you can select "Manual". This will allow you to go back to the old way of being able to manually organize and control where you want things on your Queue.
