Why isn't my Roku XD letting me stream in Hi-Def with my new HDMI cable?

I bought a Roku XD a couple of weeks ago. It did not come with an HDMI cable, that was sold separately. It said to purchase one if you wanted to watch "in the best picture quality". Today, I finally got around to buying a standard 3ft HDMI cable and hooking it up to my high definition TV HDMI port. I'm trying to stream Netflix or Amazon movies on it though and it's still standard definition fuzziness. The connection setting says my Wi-Fi is "Excellent" and I have high speed cable internet wi-fi at home. What gives?

I even went into the settings and changed it from "Display Type" from "standard" to "HDTV" but that has not changed anything. The HDMI ports are definitely hooked up correctly I have triple and quadruple checked them. Could the cable be faulty? Should I return it for another?
There is no place in the Netflix options to let me change an HD setting. I'm not very tech savvy. Did I get the wrong Roku or something? What am I doing wrong here I just want to binge watch It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia in HD!
