windows 7, xp, vista, whatever has no bearing on it. Netflix is somewhat usable in Sage with the addition of PlayOn. PlayOn will basically launch the netflix silverlight player in a hidden window, and capture the playback. That capture is then streamed to Sage, which plays it back (again). It's far from an ideal setup. Picture/Audio quality is nowhere NEAR as good as playing it back in the silverlight player directly. This setup is really the only option for extenders though, and seems 'good enough' to not spur any further development in the PC Client playback. You may find you'd be happier just whipping out a mouse and launching the actual netflix webpage... I certainly do.
