View Full Version : 8MB/s Cable Line - Buffering HD takes forever!!!

Jul 28, 2008, 12:02 AM
Hey guys,

I am so confused. I have the Apple TV hooked up to my AirPort Extreme. I have Time Warner with an 8MB/s cable line.

I just rented "Corpse Bride" and after 45 minutes I am still downloading. (It is currently at 40% and tells me that it needs 12 more min before playing)

a) Why does it have to download THIS much? Can't it start playing at around 20%?

b) I did a Speakeasy speed test WHILE the movie was downloading. It still had almost ALL of my bandwidth available. Why is AppleTV not taking advantage of my download speed? Any thoughts?
