    Unhappy NETFLIX slow loading speed (5 min.)

    I purchased this TV(46PFL4706/F7) specifically for Netflix. When I press NetTv it loads quickly. Select Netflix & it loads quickly. Select a movie & it loads quickly. But when I press to watch the selection it takes about 5 minutes of viewing the loading screen before the selection starts. Once it starts it runs fine. No crashes, pauses or freezing.

    I have a another smart tv in my bedroom that loads in about 10 to 15 seconds. So I know the server connection & speed are fine.

    I upgraded the firmware to the latest (321) & it made no difference.

    I get it all the time since I upgraded to the latest version. They should add another update to it or at least there is a way to downgrade firmware.

    Update.....I tried the most inexpensive solution. I wired the TV directly to my router with a high quality ethernet cable. Netflix now loads in about 10 seconds and the picture quality is better!
    The problem appears to be in the wifi connection on the TV. It's a hardware problem not a software problem! This could possibly be why this TV has been discounted so much.($500 discount on Amazon). Fortunately my TV is located where I can run the wire easily to the TV.
