For the last year and a half I've enjoyed watching Netflix movies in Windows 7 Media Center. Within the last few days I've encountered a problem where the play button no longer shows up reliably. I can open my instant queue, select a movie or episode, get the information, but not play it. If I browse around my queue I may eventually get a movie that has a play button. After watching the movie, however, the play button may disappear.
This appears to be a recent problem as shown by threads in other less helpful forums around the webternet:
I can't find anything on Netflix's support site about this. It seems as though this may be a problem with an update or someting. Any hints?
