Xfinity Streaming Maxes Out CPU

Xfinity Streaming Maxes Out CPU

I know there are multiple posts on this topic, because I spend an inordinate amount of time searching through them to no avail.


Xfinity streaming is virtually unusable because of super high CPU usage. Even on low quality (and who wants to watch a blurry pixelated mess?), the video still stops/starts with the audio and video constantly mismatched.


I've tried everything. I don't have this issue on Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, or Youtube. It ONLY happens to me when streaming Xfinity. Switching browsers doesn't matter either.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled silverlight multiple times, checked and unchecked the hardware excelerator, closed everything under the sun that could be running in the background etc.


Why can't anyone come up with something that actually works??? I'm so tired of paying for something I can't even use.
