I recently acquired Chromecast so I could access shomi_ (among other things) which cannot be accessed directly in Optik. I had previously accessed Netflix on my Optik STB because my home entertainment centre's firmware is crap. My question is: why do I get a better Netflix streaming experience in terms of choppiness and freezing (or lack thereof) using Chromecast than the STB, given that it the STB uses a wired connection and Chromecast is wireless?

Could be something going on with the Netflix app on the Optik TV box.

I have had not really seen much difference in stream quality or choppiness between my chromecast and Optik stb. Loading and navigating menus with stb is a bit slower though.

Perhaps resetting the stb may help?
