    Netflix titles can be 1080p without being "Super HD."

    i believe the theory is a higher bit rate on the 1080p super hd.

    All my NF content is upscaled to 1080p. I just want to see how much better this is.

    The list of devices is sort of incorrect too. The Roku XD/S all thou 1080p capable only does Netflix in 720p. As far as I can tell.

    well according to avs site it looks like a possible bug is why im getting high/sd after high/hd on the ps3. they think its because there isnt a level programmed into the ps3 indicator to show that bite rate.

    I called Netflix again and tried to explain the high/sd thing and asked to report it as a bug.

    Do you know: NetFlix has no technical support? I called them a year or so ago about a problem I was having and as soon as it got a bit (just a little bit) technical, they quickly gave up and told me to call my ISP. I then asked to be sent to their technical support people and was told they don't have that. Unreal. They're trying to go to a mostly streaming business and don't support it in any way, technically.

    I got that feeling the first time I called and he tried to tell me my connection wasn't steady enough. I pointed out that I can do vudu hdx 1080p on the same ps3 with no problem. He said that was like comparing apples and oranges. So I gave up and did more Internet searches and found AVS was taking about it and said he had a bit rate of 4800( I think) and was showing high/sd. They assumed it was a big.

    I got into one of those circular arguments. NF told me to call CV. CV told me to call NF and so forth.

    Honestly, I don't know who else to call. I guess I'll get it when I get it. Not that important to me, I get better PQ than D*'s 1080i with my upscaling BD players when streaming NF content.

    OK, I finally got the HD on my Sammy e6500s. Watched the sequel to The Pillars of Fire on one of my e6500s and it looks good. Watched the second episode on one of my c5500s that doesn't show the Super HD logo and it upscaled it so well, I couldn't really tell the difference. Now, I see most of the New Releases show the Super HD logo.

    I have a Sony 590 arriving tomorrow, need it to replace the c5500 on my Home Theater Sammy sound system. Can't put another Sammy on it, the remotes would screw both up.

    The Sony 590 was the choice over on AVS and I'll be interested to see if it can at least perform as well as my Sammys do.

    My Sammy e6500s and c5500s upscale every thing to 1080p/60 and I kinda thought that was what I was looking at. All my Panny plasmas tell me is 1080p. I called NF about the ("Super HD") and, naturally, they didn't know what it was. They're gonna send me an email if they figure it out. I'm not holding my breath. How can they run that company without tech support?

    So, I got the Sony 590 yesterday and I'm not happy with it. The remote is not as well thought out as the Sammy remotes, which aren't well thought out, but the Sony remote is really bad. Tiny buttons, big Home button where it's not needed. Can't see the damn thing in a dark room. I'm gonna give it another day and see if I can tolerate it. The PQ is on a par with my Sammy e6500s. The 590 doesn't have a time counter on the front panel as the Sammys do. Another nail in the coffin.
