How was the Picture Quality of "Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet?"

Yeah, NetFlix asked me about this. :cool:

I was looking around on NetFlix website trying to figure out how to report video problems of instant viewed material. But, couldn't find anything.

At one point during the play back the video broke up and was green...and somewhere after that the audio/video sync was off. Tried pause, ff, rev, stop and restart, but it stayed out of sync.

The only thing I didn't try was switching broadband service. I stayed on Cox for the 3 that I watched yesterday. Even though I have a TiVo HD on Cox and the other TiVo HD on DSL, so it would've been a simple move.

Though both TiVo HDs are direct attached to the cablemodem router...there are two gigabit switches between the cable modem router and the dslmodem router, but wouldn't expect that to have much impact.

Cox should be the faster...pretty I'm supposed to be getting 7Mbps with up to 12Mbps with PowerBoost....though speedtests seem to indicate I get faster speed with my 6MBps DSL service (a fairly consistent 5Mbps). Haven't watched an HD stream on NetFlix, but those had worked better on Cox than DSL. DSL on the other hand is much more reliable. Last lights storm, Cox was out for a few hours. DSL never went down, in fact I managed to stay online during it as well (though I had to make various network configuration tweaks, since most of my home network has Cox as the default gateway)...and had to work fast, since DHCP server has no redundancy and that machine's UPS has short life.

Probably next on my list to get a big UPS for...

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
