In the last week or two, I've noticed I'm starting to get some shipments from Netflix in 1 day again. It's about 50/50 for the last two weeks. Definitely an improvement.

I wound up buying this set, as it shows on amazon as the newer model of the 42LB5800. Seems a good feature mix for the price, and it has 3 HDMI ports rather than 2, which is meaningful to me. It...

Question LG 42LF5800 info / reviews?

Hi folks,


I need a smallish TV for our family room... 42" class is the largest that will fit the enclosure. This room is a secondary TV site so it's OK that the TV is a bit small. Trying to keep...

What's this Hastings BD thing? I haven't heard of it. Is it gohastings.com? Looks like a disc purchase place, rather than rental?

Glad to hear it! Congratulations.


I'm curious to know what you did. And others might benefit from hearing it.


Good luck for future problem-free recording.

+1


Since I get NF shipping notices by 10 am most days, I struggle to see why NF can't get the discs to USPS in time to be sorted. My conclusion is that they could, but choose not to.

Actually, though USPS has famously downgraded its service, I don't believe it to be as much of the root cause of this as NF is making it out to be. While the USPS doesn't guarantee overnight first...

IMHO, give up any thoughts of using Windows for Netflix. I did it for a few years; NF through Windows Media Center just sucks. I still don't think the Windows NF streaming supports HD.
