Netflix Streaming problem on LG Smart TV

I have an LG LM620T connected to the internet. My broadband is 60 meg cable, and my internet connection to the TV is via 200mbps Homeplugs, so I wouldn't expect any buffering problems.
Indeed, I don't get them when watching either YouTube or BBC iPlayer in the HD format using the TV's built-in apps..
However, when using the Netflix app, I do. Worse still the buffering process locks up with the 'thermometer' nowhere near 100%. If I press the 'Back' button and restart it does at least restart where I left off.
I'm pretty sure this isn't a broadband problem as I can even get perfect Netflix streaming via wi-fi to my Google Nexus 7 tablet, using the same movies that lock on the TV.
I'm thinking that this is either a problem with the app or a memory problem in the TV.
