Netflix playability problems - video freezes and breakups

Hi,

Since a couple of weeks ago I started having problems with Netflix playback.
I encounter one or more of the following issues 1-3 times per minute:
- The video freezes momentarily
- Colored squares appear on screen for several seconds
- Sharp noise
Usually the sound is clean, except for a few rare clicks.

I played the same movie on my PC and did not see these problems.
There are no stream buffering issues.
I did not have these problems when I first got the player (BDP-S570/BX57)

Thanks

I'm having the same problem. We though it might be the wireless router but we just bought a new N-series and still does not help.

Youtube videos also freeze up. every 1-2 minutes.

We also have no problem streaming it on a pc.

I am having the same problem. I visited C-Net and read reviews of the BDP-S570 and it seems it is a common problem. I recently purchased a newer model Sony BDP and it does not have any problems streaming Netflix. Neither does my WiFi connected PC. I have tried the S570 using WiFi and wired connections with the same results.
