Lack of Netflix HD big deal?

    Thank you.
    Do you know if the restriction is also valid for the audio 5.1?
    Kind regards Luigi

    As far as Netflix is concerned, in all the devices I have owned over the last seven years, my go to device is always a ROKU, followed by the ATV and I currently run a Roku 3 and Roku Premiere+ for Netflix viewing.

    I find that both my MINIX Android boxes will run the latest Netflix app for their API. but the experience is diminished by a few things.

    1. The Android app interface is not as slick as the Roku3 or later version
    2. The picture quality is diminished and in some ways "washed out" compared with the Roku3
    3. There is a noticeable fps stall every now and then, my missus does not notice it, but I find it to be annoying.
    4. Search is better on the Roku3 and the Premiere+ but perhaps not fair to compare with the older MINIX devices I currently own.

    I cannot comment on the sound quality, both the MINIX and the ROKU deliver surround sound via my amplifier, my old ears cannot define if one is better than another.
