Netflix on Nexicom

I have a favour to anyone on Nexicom.

Are you able to stream 1080 on Netflix? I can't get past 560 SD. I'm just wondering if anyone else has this issue.

Works here perfect. I believe they have a netflix cache box on the network somewhere. If you shift control s in the netflix player, it will pull up stats and provide you with the info.

I just tried in the office and got 720p, but that is because I'm running Windows 7 (1080p is only available on certain devices, and Windows 7 is not one of them).

It started off at 560, but as it buffered up, it went to 720 within about 10 seconds.

I can try with the Windows 8 app from home tonight, but I have streamed 1080p (Super HD) from home in the past.

So weird, I can never get past 560 no matter what I do. At first I thought it was my modem, so I went ahead and bought a SmartRG..still the same result.

I'm currently in bridged mode letting my router handle the PPPoE connection.

This is the part that's stumped me that I can't explain: I borrowed my friend's Bell B1 id and programmed that into my router. It allowed me right away to toggle to a res higher than 560.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong here.

What is that screen of "Stream Manager" ? Some recorder of Netflix ??

Doing 720p right now @ 3000 kbps with your link.

What's your speed test with the nexicom login ?

The stream manager allows you to manually force the quality that Netflix will serve you. This can be accessed by press shift + alt + left click during playback.
