    I am running the latest Nookie Froyo eMMC install and allow the Nook to scale up to 1ghz with SetCPU, however Netflix playback on the most recent market version is still very choppy. What kinda performance are other people getting out of the Nook Color and Netflix?

    I've been enjoying perfect playback.

    Your available network bandwidth plays a bigger role in Netflix playback. My home internet, for instance, is not fast enough to stream HD.

    My playback is perfect also. I wonder if it is a Froyo vs Gingerbread issue..

    Likewise, no problems and running Gingerbread.

    Thanks all, its definitely not my network speed... I have like 3 other devices in my house that I stream netflix on with no problems.

    Maybe I will give Gingerbread a try over the weekend. Did they fix the wifi always on/battery leak with the Gingerbread images yet? I love the fact that I can get more than a week of standby with the current image.

    I believe so. I got over 72 hours on my last full charge with moderate use.
