Window Media Center problems with Netflix

About six months ago I started having problems with Netflix operating within Windows Media Center. I could launch Netflix with no problems, movie titles are displayed as expected at the main screen. Now here are the problems.

Problem #1 (the search function): Started about six months ago. If I try to do a search, the following error would pop up,
“NO INTERNET CONNECTION, The Internet connection has been lost. Make sure your PC is connected to the Internet, then try again.” Everything else within the application seems to work ok. I can run Netflix in a browser (IE, Firefox or Chrome) with no problems.

Problem #2 (movie title selection): This is a new problem which started about two days ago. With any title selected at the main screen, a Script Error is generated with the following information;

“An error has occurred in the script on this page”
Line: 0
Char: 0
Error: Script error
Code: 0
URL: Netflix.....

Do you want to run this scrip anyway “yes/no”

Also behind this error is a message “Adjusting for better playback for slower connections...” Once again I can play Netflix through my browser(s) with no problems. Any ideas as to how to fix the problems ???
