WMC + Netflix = *$&!

More Netflix + WMC woes...

Windows Media Center freezes using the Netflix Plugin at the end of episodes.  This is sporadic and hard to troubleshoot.

I've read that Netflix uses the PlayReady features in WMC (Windows Media Center) and deleting the PlayReady cache file can fix many problems.

I've also had some limited success fixing Netflix + WMC errors by clearing my Internet Explorer cache and temporary internet files.

Unfortunately this crash still occurs.  The only way to recover is to CTRL + ALT + DEL and force kill Media Center.

I'm Windows 7 x64 on a Dell Zino HD, Silverlight 5 (Developer Release).

Silverlight 4 had this issue as well.
