Windows Media Center lags on Netflix after update

Almost each time a Netflix demonstrate I am watching in Media Center reaches the end the show freezes a number of times in the full screen and WMC stops be conscious of. The video remains full screen, frozen on the most recent frame played, and WMC's menus/buttons do not come into view. The WMC does not back out of the video to the Netflix browser. I say almost certainly for the reason that because a show has almost certainly ended and backed out to the Neflix/WMC browser perhaps on an occasion in the entire the episodes/movies I have comprised and watched mostly tv episodes, one movie.

In this untypically the freeze happens previous to the extreme end of the video throughout credits, sometimes chopping to demonstrate short/mid-sentence if they are talking in excess off credits. The merely method I be able to acquire out of the video and back to WMC is to alt-ctrl-del and end the Media Center procedure it demonstrates Running in task manager additional than eventually it comes up "Not Responding" then restarts.

I had tried watching a video commenicng from side to side the IE browser and it completes acceptably. It goes to a NetFlix RedScreen with the intention of prompts you to Go Back to Browsing. This is what most of the media center users are missing it to facilitate pop to redscreen. Is this innovative did NetFlix change something. It seems similar to the short term fix is to not let the movie terminate additional than is not great for the reason that the kids watch short episodes or walk away, I tend to fall asleep sometimes.
