Netflix "watch now" - does this crap work for anyone?

Brand new XP install fully updated and all I can get is the microsoft bitching about their DRM message after media player craps out.... OVER and OVER and OVER. Yes, I talked to netflix who pointed me to the DRM reset. Unfornately, that does no good because media player 11 keeps shitting itself.

Is anyone actually able to use this?

The trouble, it turns out, was resolved after I changed to a hdmi cable to connect the PC to my HDTV. The netflix rep told me the component cable would be fine. He was wrong. I assume all PC configurations will be different but it would have been nice and saved me a lot of aggravation if the Netfilx rep had even the slightest frigging clue. Oh, well...

Well, glad you got it resolved. I didn't realize you were sending the video out to an external display or I would have mentioned the HDCP issues that some reported a while back. I thought you were just watching it on your RGB monitor
