    The OP was about watching Netflix whilst "gaming/doing school work/blogging/reading news/etc", I doubt in that scenario it matters as I said in my first post. Although I guess he'd have to confirm if he is that fussy about his secondary task.

    like I say, different tools for different jobs. sure, you can use a hammer for everything. but different people use different apps for different scenarios. I set up Netflix for all scenarios. I run it in the browser some time, in the Windows Store app some time, in WMC sometime, on my Android sometime, on my iPad 2 sometime, and on my WD TV some time.

    his issue is more likely an HDCP handshake issue. a guy in another AV forum suggested unplugging and replugging the HDMI cable. this will force the handshake to reinitialize. so if that can get the DRM protected path needed for his setup. This is a common problem seen in the AV world with audio receivers and TVs. If the handshake doesn't happen, you don't get any output.
