Well, the Wii is better for netflix than PlayOn (it can even do advanced functions like fast forward and rewind), but as mentioned, it IS 480p. Wii2 (or whatever they end up calling it) is going to be HD.. but probably not be released until 2012. If she want's a wii for wii fit, you can certainly get it for that purpose - and use it for netflix - but i certainly wouldn't buy it FOR netflix.

We used to have this ability with the old netflix plugin for v6 that got abandoned. It would launch a window that would be grabbed by a autohotkey script that would recognize remote codes and it worked great. The same would work if somebody (plucky) would dive into the netflix api for browsing. That is the reason the original plugin was abandoned. When netflix changes something it has be be redone.

I remember -- I wrote that autohotkey script. Unfortunately I've never had the time to learn how to develop for SageTV and write my own Netflix plugin.

That'll happen.

I've got so many "projects" that I need equipment for I don't think I'll ever have them finished.

Then you're over building.. ;-) It shouldn't have to cost that much... It's not like you don't have a spare small harddrive laying around.

I don't think I am over building even if you take the cheap ssd off it is still $350.

mini-itx motherboard
cheapest i3 sandy bridge
4gb of ram
cheap mini itx case with power supply

don't see any overage there.

Thanks for the offer but I will get there eventually but going to be a couple of months or more before I think I can drop the money.

You can go sandy bridge, but the h55 socket 1156 boards are great too. Granted looking at newegg they seem to be priced almost the same.

Yeah, you'd save about $20-30 going with clarkdale. I'm not sure I'd even build a 4GB client. Not sure I've ever noticed any slowdown in my clarkdale 2GB.

Yeah I wouldn't do anything but a sandy bridge honestly why not by the better one.

To me 4gb is $20 more and worth the cushion.

Not like I am buying today anyway.

It was my understanding that the original code didn't use the Netflix API, as it was originally built before the API was available. Part of the reason it was difficult to maintain. I also think there was some information it was scraping that the API didn't provide when the API first became available.

What, you won't have this ready by COB today??

Not sure if you've look at the Netflix silverlight player much, but some information that may be helpful:

http://markwarren.wordpress.com/2010...ard-shortcuts/

Note that episode selection has no keyboard shortcuts, so you'd need to pull that data from the API and then close/open a new player.

I had been working on a greasemonkey script that allows the player to take up the full browser window without needing to use the full-screen mode of the player, but I kinda lost interest in it -- let me know if that's something you'd be interested in and I'll find time to polish it up a bit (could be useful in an embedded browser).
