That page says it's not available here yet my tivo premiere does switch into 1080p while viewing now. Never did that before. Happens on all titles listed as SuperHD. My roku? No change.

Well,

I hope Cox works it out with them. I'd certainly think it would help with bandwidth concerns and let us see some nice super-HD programming.

I'm fine either way. I want Cox to start pushing out IPV6 more...

Just started watching The West Wing and its being pushed in SuperHD (with my TiVo); went to the Netflix SHD page and it shows my Cox franchise (OC, CA) is ready. Right on. The feed is noticeably sharper, on par with most other Cox HD channels. I only see artifacts when the background is moving very quickly (panning). Very cool.

My tivo switches to 1080p all by itself and it's clearly better but my roku doesn't change resolutions and it looks the same. Does anybody know if the roku switch to 1080p or does it stay at the default 720p? (It's set to 1080p)

Looks like the Manchester, CT market comes out of Rhode Island (as thats where my IP geolocates to). I wonder how this will affect data caps - we'll either hit them faster, or maybe Netflix data won't count anymore? I'm sure it's the former.

5.8mbps is certainly not blu-ray but compared to netflix's regular HD superHD is remarkably better.

According to that test page, SuperHD is available in the Greater Louisiana area now.

I tried out SuperHD on my PS3 last night and it looked great. My only concern is what is the MBps difference from normal HD? Also, is there anyway to turn it off? I am thinking for people close to their cap, this might put them over the top.

Well SuperHD is still a no go here in the Hampton Roads market, as for people with bandwidth restrictions. You can always sign into your account on the netflix site, and you have 3 option's for quality. Which will lower bandwidth usage per hour, but also lower the streaming quality.

I don't know if its just my Bluray player or what, but since "SuperHD" went live I'm having a lot of trouble with movies freezing at some point and then the only way I can get the box to respond at all is to turn it off. Its random places, sometimes it freezes 2 minutes into something, sometimes 75 minutes into it.

Is it possible the bluray cant handle the increase in bandwidth? Does it only happen on SuperHD movies?

Its definitely possible, and I wonder the same thing, the only thing that makes me curious is how sometimes a movie can play for over an hour before freezing. You'd think if it was a memory issue you'd see it well before then, and that it'd be fairly consistent.

I've only tried to play SuperHD movies, so I don't know if its happening on other stuff, will have to investigate.

IMO that sounds a player firmware, or more likely, the streaming widget issue. Try asking about your model in the owners forum in... '»www.avsforum.com/f/149/blu-ray-players'
Widget patches are rolled out all the time for streaming players.

Still no Super HD in NOVA

If it helps, I have a PS3 Slim hooked up wired. Watching a 1080P SuperHD movie on Netflix looks to use about 1.5MB to 1.8MBps. On the same system, watching 720P uses 500KB to 800KBps. That's a decent increase so if your bluray was wireless, you might be having throughput issues. Or the bluray player itself may be a bottleneck. Maybe try a wired connection and see if problem goes away?

Hmm well that is odd, as you would think if one area of cox is working, all there market's would be green lighted for this. I know for me it's saying no, and so this may be a good topic for discussion. I don't need top quality for watching netflix, but it should be an option to me. As I am a ultimate tier customer, and 100mbps down is plenty of bandwidth speed to run multiple stream's if I want.

I bet the servers are at the cox headends

Yeah has to be something of that kind, as some cox market's have it while some still a no go. I just hope this option becomes available in all cox market's at some point. Because it just seems a little silly to me, if only certain market's will have this available to them.
