Windows Media Center streaming NETflix LAG!?

By Snuffy09 ·
Windows 7 Pro
4gb RAM
AMD 6 core 2.8Ghz
ATI 5750 Graphics card
PCIx 16 sound ccard (i forget model)
22mbs tested download speed from speedtest.net

When I go to netflix.com and play a movie it plays fine - no lag.

When I use Windows media Center to stream netflix it gets choppy every 20 mins or so. This is very frustrating because I just ditched our DSL and upgraded to Cable thinking that was the issue. ( it was really bad when using 2 computers at the same time on the LAN)

I tried uninstalling silverlight and installing current version. I also installed W7 SP1 and all other available windows updates.I did some other tweaks as well... Didnt help!

I read there are issues with silverlight and netflix and people using other software like Boxee have had streaming issues. I tried what i found on the blogs but nothing helped.

anybody have any ideas?
