the problem has something to do with OSX.macbook pro i5, Mac OS X (10.6.6), display port to HDMI cable by griffin

I think I got it.
SilverLight on the mac behaves differently, it will not use hardware acceleration until you take it fullscreen, and without acceleration HD content will not be practical.
So, fire up safari, go to netflix and start a movie that says "HD Available", like office or Heros.
Then when it starts buffering use alt-ctrl-shift-d and go to full screen, you will see acceleration marked as True/True
from there it will progressively go to 1000->1500 and to 2600->3600 HD!
I am still testing to see if this is consistent, would love to get your experience with this method.
it is much easier to get HD with windows, but at last there is a way for mac users too.macbook pro i5, Mac OS X (10.6.6), display port to HDMI cable by griffin
