HDTV problem - New firmware and new Netflix app video skips

Just today updated to the latest firmware on my Samsung LCD TV, Model: LN55C650L1FXZA. Noticed that it also updated to the newest version of the Netflix app.
In the Netflix app, which is something I use quite a bit, I've noticed that on some movies the playback will now drop frames every few seconds. The result is a little jump every 10 seconds or so that's very annoying to watch and wasn't there with the old firmware and/or app. The soundtrack doesn't skip, however, and stays in sync.
I'm seeing this in some, but not all, movies. For example "Little Shop Of Horrors" has the problem, as does "Moulin Rouge!". "Star Trek" (the new movie) doesn't.
By the way, "Auto Motion Plus" is off. I know that this can in some situations also cause jumps.
Is anyone else seeing this on their Samsung TV?
