    The picture is just fuzzy as hell. It seems to snap into hd for a few seconds here and there.

    That sounds like a connection speed problem. Fuzzy video is a sure sign that the connection is not good, as Netflix, Amazon, and most streaming sites all adapt the stream to conditions at the time. When conditions improve, so does the quality of the stream. Since there is no guarantee of the quality of connection, this is how streaming video has to be done to ensure that the end user gets something. So I don't think this has a thing to do with your iPad. You might, however, try rebooting your cable modem and your router, or the equvialent if you have some other kind of internet service.

    They say all kinds of things...but I use Netflix plenty on my tablets and the only time I have issues is when it has to throttle back due to connection problems. In fact, I'm doing it right now and I get a great image. And even if there is a Netflix app issue, the only fix for that is one that comes from Netflix.

    Thanks. That explains why my wife's random crap on roku is better than Netflix.

    I have experienced the 'time of day' picture degradation mentioned in the article on both Netflix and XBox Live. My work day is 4AM - Noon so I try to do my serious viewing in the afternoon before suburbia plugs the pipe between 7pm - 10pm.
