Netflix Keeps stopping

When I try to watch a Netflix movie/tv show it will buffer for a while and then start and 3-4 seconds later just stop and go back to the play screen. Any fixes?
Thanks!

Get a faster internet connection, or pause it yourself and let it buffer more?

Are you using wifi or a 3G signal? Works best when on wifi.

I had this problem too last night. I don't think it is related to the Internet connection, since the movie ran just fine after I switched over to my Samsung Bluray player with inbuilt Netflix client (the player is connected through the same router). Looks like a bug in the ATV to me. It's too bad, since the ATV's Netflix client is much better than the one in the BD player.

I tried to let it buffer but just got the same results. I'm restoring it now just to see if anything works. Its a shame, my number one reason for getting the ATV was the netflix.

I don't think the ATV keeps downloading and buffering if you pause it. I was having trouble with my movie stopping to buffer every 30 seconds, so i did the usual pause for a couple minutes to let it build up a buffer, and not 30 seconds after i started playing again it stopped. This is on a 10Mbps connection on 5GHz N wireless.
