    Hello everyone and specially HG. I've been searching in multiple forums an answer and even a solution for this problem. Being this device one of my favorites, it turns into a frustrating device when I realized that Netflix app only do the streaming content in 480p resolution. It seems that all have to do with DRM wevine protection that only allow some android devices to run real HD content as WeeTek Core and Nvidia Shield.
    Is there any solution to this?
    Thanks,

    It's been discussed here several times. If you want, search: Netflix in the search engine of this forum to find the threads. Basically, minix's hardware could handle netflix hd with no problems. Sadly, it's netflix's policy to restrict most of the brands and devices to sd.

    Thank you for answering....
    Sadly, it seems that the only way to solve this is trough Netflix.
    Anyway, yesterday I saw a post from xda developers doing some code things in android devices to alter this...do you have any idea?

    I don't know if they can change it. I hope they will succeed. We have to wait and see.
