Has anyone attempted to stream netflix while using a Bluetooth headset? When I tried this netflix bufferred every 20 seconds or so and when it wasn't buffering, the video was choppy and audio was not in sync. Using wired headset it worked flawless.

Holy sh@t I thought I was the only one who realized this. I wifi netflix and bluetooth to Jambox and it sucks. Buffers a lot and delayed sound. It even happens when playing a game with the Jambox connected. I take the bluetooth off and it's perfect.

I can't even use the Netflix app because the interface is sooooooo slow. It literally takes five to ten seconds to respond to touch inputs and when I try to scroll through lines of movies/shows, my finger travels the entire screen and the row moves only one or two places over. It's really annoying.

Apparently enabling forced GPU rendering in settings -> developer options will help with Netflix performance. It might cause issues with other apps though, so keep that in mind.

This is the same hardware problem that the prime had. You may notice it on you tube as well. It's because bt/wifi share a antenna. That said I did play around with mine for a few minutes and did not have the problem. Granted I'm sitting pretty close to the router. Check this out.... run the netspeed app to see what you get with bt off. Then start streaming some music to your bt headphones for google music and run netspeed while it's streaming. You will probablly notice a signifcant decrease.

What was mentioned about sharing the same hardware with the wifi/bt in the prime is correct. They use the same chip to decode both signals. So when both are being used at the same time the process slows down for both signals. This is a common occurrence among many portable devices and not just any Asus tablet. I've seen it on my cell phones also. Manufactures are moving to this combined chip process to save in both cost and shrink the size of the devices for smaller cases.

Now having said that, these chips are designed to function with both signals at the same time. If yours is experiencing horrible performance then return it for another. Don't wait for software fixes because they won't fix the hardware. It might improve but chances are higher it won't be fixed. If you wait your return for exchange window may pass.

Does anyone have a Tf700 that actually streams movies over wifi and bluetooth to speaker, ear buds or anything successfully. I don't want to wait for an exchange if no one can successfully accomplish it.

I just did a wifi speed test without bluetooth on and my speed was 28mbs
With wifi on and bluetooth streaming music to my jambox the score dropped to 0.39mbs
That's crazy.
I used the speedtest.net app.
And enabling the gpu in the developer section didn't make any difference.

I've had my Infinity for a few days now and don't have any problems watching netflix while on my blue tooth headset. I always watch Netflix for about an hour in the morning when I'm working out.
