Netflix app crashes 2-3 times per show I try to stream. Why bother?

App crashes constantly (multiple times during a single 1 hour long show). DVR looks up and/or becomes unresponsive a few times a month.

Just swapped out the DVR today and lost all our recordings, hoping this would resolve the issue. Nope, 2 netflix failures right off the bat.

Went to the netflix app on our TV, watched 3 episodes with zero issues.

Seriously rethinking why I have this DVR and/or even use the apps. Would save a ton of money and hassles to just cancel the cable service.

I can't be the only one.
