Netflix not streaming HD w/ Safari

Netflix recently announced that they will steam HD content to mac and pc users, but so far it does not work for me. I'll pick a show I know is in HD and play it, but while it shows the HD icon in the lower right, when I mouse over it the icon's pop-up displays the "allow HD button" checked and above that reads "not playing in HD"

I've tried this with several different sources with the same results. Anyone else with this problem? Is there a solution?


BTW, I meet all of Netflix's requirements for streaming to PC in HD:

Silverlight 3 or higher
A screen resolution of at least 800 x 600
A high-speed internet connection at time of playback (typically 5 Mbps or higher)

you just have to give the player a long time to buffer the HD stream.
