Best way to Netflix and chill?

admars (Elite) posted this on Sunday, 30th December 2018, 18:24

I may try Netflix for a month, and was wondering how ppl access it before I experiment and the missus gets annoyed with me for not leaving it alone ;)

Attached to the TV I have the following netflix compatible devices (the TV itself, and blu ray player are too old for the netflix app)

ps3
ps4
PC
Virgin Tivo

sadly blu tooth no longer works on ps3, so the blu mote remote won't work any more, and have to use a controller cabled :(

ps4 - would have to use controller so a bit cumbersome

PC - i could maybe set up the ps3 blumote with that, I've used that with vlc on the pc, not sure you can configure for netflix? I've also got wireless logitech keyboard with built in mousepad.

virgin Tivo box - seems most sensible - can use the remote as a normal remote, but bbc iplayer I've found to be a bit hit and miss, I remember a couple of times 5 mins into a sit com giving up and using the ps3 iplayer app instead, or pc as it kept stuttering :(

(I've understood what netflix and chill means right ;) )

Is it the older Tivo or V6 box?

We will pay the price but we will not count the cost..

the older one.

coincidentally on another forum, where I asked same question someone replied that they have both and on older one it's bad, but new one is good.

I was also just reading how ps4 does a v good job

The new one is brilliant.
iPlayer on the V6 box is superb and has never paused or buffered. The old one just hung and was pretty unusable. Even has Dynasties in UHD. I got my upgrade for free.
I'd say it's the way to go.

Well being ancient, I am totally lost on all this

the kids won't actually be watching Netflix, or to put it another way , you wouldn't want to hear your daughter say she went to a "friend's" to "Netflix and chill".

I on the other hand would like some time to relax and watch the new Black Mirror.

Interestingly, when I go to use the app on the Virgin Tivo box, and try to watch the new Black Mirror, it warns me that the interactive stuff won't work, so I'll use PS4 and app, and it looks like I can use either the netflix app on my phone, or use the ps4 second screen app on the phone as a remote!
