I recently (like this week) built a HTPC with a D2700DC motherboard. Everything played great but Netflix HD -- it's still a problem (jerkiness with Silverlight 5, freezes with Silverlight 4). My feeling though is it's a software/driver issue because the CPU was only hitting 45-65%.
Otherwise, it's great.

well, Netflix HD is really CPU demanding,,,
on an ATOM platform, you'll likely have issues like u do,,,
on my HTPC guide, i recommend the Zotac ZBOXHD-ND22-U for NETFLIX HD...
its DUAL CORE CELERON CPU will handle it easy,,,
but its now a product that reached its end of life,,,,
the next best prebuilt box will definitely be the ZBOX ID82

You can go into your Netflix account and set playback quality to middle quality, and you should be fine......
