I have the Roku hooked up to my Sony XBR 36" CRT via S-VIDEO (SVHS) cable. I have a 20mB download speed and always get maximum quality.
I usually do not have any problems with the Roku. Very occasionally I notice a slight stuttering or jerkiness to the image.
But last night I was watching a French romantic comedy called "The Housekeeper."

It was non-stop stuttering from start to finish! It was still watchable but quite annoying. I restarted the movie several times but it did not help.
I'm not sure if frames were being dropped or skipped but it was quite noticeable.
Has anyone else with the Roku noticed this? I might be mistaken but I seem to recall this problem more with foreign films than with USA films.
What I wanted to know is it just me or is it the way the film was possible encoded for netflix?
If someone could please add this movie to there queue and take a look at it for a few minutes for me and report back I would greatly appreciate it.
