    Well with my 10Mb (average test speed is really 9Mb) I couldn't get any higher than high sd. It of course started at low sd then high sd then medium hd then high hd (only for a second) then jump back to high sd.

    Guess ill test some more and see. Even in high sd the picture look good. Saturday after noon maybe to many people on Netflix.

    As a comparison my network speed on vudu's network speed test pegs out at 9 or greater recommending hdx.

    It seems odd that Netflix has to do some tricks with the ISPs to get superHD while Vudu can get it already without anything like that.

    My ISP too. Seems that they want to push their own streaming service. (Sreampix) We use to have comcast and it was included with our package. No where close to Netflix, Amazon or Hulu, seemed someone at Comcast thought it could stop subs from cutting their cord.

    I just got off the phone with NF and, as usual, the CSR didn't understand much of what I was asking. I did find out that the Sammy BD-e6500s are on the HD list, but they already upscale all NF content to 1080p at 60 frames per second. I'll have to hunt thru the titles on my computers until I find one and give it a try. I asked the CSR for just one title and she couldn't find one. Anyone have a title?

    What are you wanting? 1080p titles or Super HD titles?

    For super hd it says 7Mb/s max and 5Mb/s mini. Before super hd with only 6Mb ISP I could get x high HD.

    I upgraded to 10Mb ISP and with this super hd movies it goes through low sd high sd then med hd and high hd (just for a second) back down to high sd.

    With regular hd it taps out at medium hd.

    Guess a call to Netflix is in order.

    The frighteners was super hd. I don't have 3d. It will show "super hd" in the description instead of HD. Offen it has 5.1 too.

    You might want to sample your download speeds first. May not be a NF glitch at all. Some ISPs don't actually deliver what they say.... imagine! :D
