The NetFlix plugin allows you to manage your queue, not use the 
on-demand services from NetFlix.  As far as I know, there isn't a way on 
Linux to view the NetFlix on Demand movie stuff.  If there was, I'm sure 
that would be a killer feature for Myth.

Unfortunately, I believe that the issue is, once again, DRM and the 
custom player you need.
