How can they run that company without tech support?

Rich


Possibly because NF is available on such a wide variety of devices.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I think it's a bug. The ps3 doesn't know what to call the higher bit rate than high/hd. So it puts up high/sd. They measured it over at avsforums and it showed high/sd.

Yeah, I get that. What I don't get is how they think they can go all streaming and not have a bit of tech support.

I've been reading about it there too. What one guy got on his TV was 1080/60p. My Panny plasmas only tell you if you have 1080p. Doesn't give any info on frames per second.

I kinda figured it was the 60fps that I was seeing. Still, a major jump in PQ. And they just keep adding Super HD content.

I did compare the SHD content with an upscaled DVD, upscaled to 1080/60p, and the SHD did show a better PQ than the DVD.

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.

Well, I hooked up the Sony to my bedroom's AV system (had to disable the home theater as far as viewing BDs or DVDs or streaming content, just using the sound system part) and watched some streaming content last night.

I might just keep it. I have to do some more research, but I know the Panny's remotes and the Sammy remotes, while being a bit better laid out than the Sony, are still kinda hard to use in a dark room. I might give an LG a shot, I dunno. Since I bought the Sony on Amazon, I've got 30 days to find something better. Don't want a box like the Apple TV or the Roku. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

NetFlix seems to be having problems with streaming and it's being blamed on the new House of Cards series. What people seem to be seeing is lockups when streaming and rebuffering. Seems like everybody finally caught on and found out what a great series this is.

Problem is, it's also affecting streaming NF content in general. And, naturally, NF is getting a lot of calls they can't answer because the don't have any tech support. What? No tech support? Nope. Nobody I've talked to at NF has any idea what's going on with streaming, nobody.

BTW, I sent that Sony 590 back. Just a step or two below the Sammy e6500s, I think. If I didn't have the Sammys, I might have been happy with the Sony, but the Sammys just work better. Just an opinion.

One more thought about the Sammy e6500 vs the Sony 590. The Sony was $98 when I bought it and the Sammy is still listed at it's usual price. ~ $170.

Guess you do get what you pay for.

Gonna be awhile for them to fix all the bugs.

Wish they'd change the UIs.
