    Directv HD DVR and Netflix - Is it possible?

    Set up a new HD DVR receiver and a wireless bridge which allows me to connect to internet (that works fine) (YOUTUBE available on DTV menu). Is there any possible way to connect to NETFLIX to stream movies via the receiver? I subscribe to Netflix and would love to be able to watch movies on my 48" plasma instead of my laptop monitor.

    DirecTV and Netflix have no "APP" yet. You will either need a SMART TV or a multimedia streaming / DLNA setup on your home network with gear like Roku, PS3, XBOX and TVersity, PLEX or some other known working setups.

    That's what i was afraid of.......I was misled at Best Buy when they sold me the bridge. I was told it would let me "connect to the internet" and I could then access my Netflix account and stream movies to my tv. I have not been able to find/figure out how to do it and since I was on here about my other issue (2nd dish) I took the opportunity to see if any of you had an answer. You have been more than helpful and I am thankful for your time.

    do you have a SMART TV w/ Netflix, maybe that is what they were telling you? Anyway, I do exactly what you just described, Netflix, as well as photos, MP3s and video files from my PC, just not directly via the DirecTV receiver, via a DLNA setup.
