Solved!

screen graphics OK, streaming Netflix etc jerky

HP t620 Flexible Thin Client
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I bought the t620 Flexible Thin Client (2015) on eBay a couple of days ago, mainly to watch Netflix on the big TV in our family room. I had been using an Android TV Box, but as Netflix and Android had a "parting" the netflix app regularly plays up.

SO... I bought the HP ($85) thinking it could double as a media player!

However after updating all of the HP website updates (including a graphics update) for this model, it still is very jerky when streaming from Netflix. The normal screen on my PC is magnificent, even You Tube plays OK, but....

I have googled and YouTubed, but as a newby to t620's I'm hoping someone can give suggestions to help sort it.

@Blindpete, welcome to the forum.

 

The Thin Clients are simply not meant to use for streaming video.  The t620 comes with either a AMD GX-217GA Dual-Core APU with AMD Radeon HD 8280E graphics (1.65 GHz) or a AMD GX-415GA Quad-Core APU with AMD Radeon HD 8330E (1.5 GHz) processor.  Neither of these is powerful enough to stream video effectively.  Also, it only comes with minimal graphics capability.  The 4 GB, upgradeable to 16 GB, of memory would be good if the other components were as capable.  The Thin Clients work great in an office setting, however.
