On paper that doesnt make sense.
They should be pulling the same data from the same source. The device wouoldnt affect international data?

(I want it so i can set DNS on the device.)

Also setting up a second line, (Bigpipe aka. Netflixpipe for me house)

I have no buffering issues, though I have the wd tv live hub so is slightly different spec.

Netflix playback does vary from device to device. For example we have a Sony Blu-Ray player with Netflix app and it struggles to pull down a decent SD image when connected to the exact same 100/50 Snap UFB connection as our Apple TVs which play in HD effortlessly with zero buffering.

I have no issues streaming Netflix from my WDTV live (although it is running the WDXLTV so I'm unsure if the orignal firmware can do it), It's been sitting in its box unused for the past month or so since getting my Amazon Fire though.
