Having a similar config to you I can confirm that Netflix streaming works* but I would have to second the notion that silverlight does not as yet** take advantage of the Crystal HD chipset.
On the Netflix front there is pixelation not crystal clear HD. Still present but drastically improved when I plugged in that cat 6 cable directly into the 10/100 FIOS router instead of using its pathetic g mode wifi. Definitely watchable though.

Article from 02/24/10 with link to download 10.1 beta 3 version of the Flash Player for viewing other non-silverlight/netflix content:
Edit 4/17/10 Silverlight 4 is out and marginally better. Worked with Netflix for my on XP32 and 7 Starter within IE/Chrome. Uninstall Silverlight 3 first. (and if trouble uninstall all Silverlights and revisit netflix to prompt for their silverlight install) Yes, Silverlight now supports Google Chrome.
