Windows 7: Netflix refuses to connect in WMC

Netflix refuses to connect in WMC

Until just an hour ago Netflix was working just fine, but now every time I run it, even after running some scans and restarting my PC and router, it won't connect. Whenever I try it sits for a minute before telling me that it can't connect to the internet, even though I can easy watch it in my browser.

Only step I haven't taken so far is a full uninstall/reinstall, which if I can't figure out how to do for Netflix in Media Center, then I would have to do with media center all together.

You should be able to uninstall from add/remove programs in control panel.

Then re-install in media center.

Just tried to uninstall it, which lead me back to my previous problem: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post770516

EDIT: I reinstalled both silverlight and netflix for Windows Media Center and I still cannot connect to the internet (again, worked earlier today, now refuses to connect). I also restarted both my PC and router, still nothing. I CAN play it in the browser, it's just easier to manage via the WMC remote control.
