I am currently not able to watch HD offerings from Netflix in HD. This is true for my Zacate build and a Roku player I have. Don't know if it's my connection or not. My internet speed is 1 Mbps, Netflix says you need at least 5 Mbps to play in HD. Does someone with the minimum speed have the same difficulty?
I'll try some SD videos with Netflix tonight...Not sure if I believe their 5Mbps claims, given that through my PS3 the HD content on netflix plays flawlessly, but on my Zacate build it's a slide show. I was mainly testing out the capabilities, and so far, netflix and espn seem to be the only two sites that give me trouble.
Whats also curious about espn.com is that I believe it uses Flash, so it's strange that Hulu and other flash sites play great for me but ESPN.com clips are choppy...could be a bandwidth thing, maybe the on board NIC is acting up (I've had it randomly disconnect itself twice so far and win7 had to "repair" it to re-establish a connection)
I'll have to do some more investigating on that, maybe the NIC is the culprit afterall. I'll try and hard wire it directly to the modem and see if I get some results (my router is close to 4 years old).
