How do I watch Netflix movies/shows in HD?

#1Purp_N_YellowPosted 1/20/2012 2:30:41 PM
I have it set up for HD, I play all my games in HD. But on Netflix none of the stuff I watch is in HD. (Yes it does show the "HD symbol" on the movies/shows I want to watch I know not all of them are in HD)

Do I have to set it up somehow through the dashboard or on the netflix menus? Thanks!

You have to have a fast enough connection. Otherwise it will just stream in SD.

What's the minimum internet connection speed for HD?

Not sure. This is mine and it streams HD fine. So if yours is better or close you should be able to do it. Netflix HD quality sucks though.

Their movies are being shown at 720p, 1080i, and 1080p, but that doesn't mean the transfers themselves are actually in those resolutions. The only things you can really count on are new releases; everything else has a chance of being upscaled DVD or made-for-TV transfers. Not only that, Netflix is cropping and "opening" the aspect ratios for multiple titles now. Their streaming is hit-or-miss. :/

Make sure you go to netflix on your computer and set your quality setting to best.

Edit: Wasn't sure if you meant you have your xbox set up for HD or if you meant you have Netflix set up as well.

Because it's cable. Cable doesn't have super fast upload.

Just be cautious of its bandwidth usage if you have a bandwidth cap. It can use up to 2.3GB an hour if you're streaming in HD, I believe.
