ATV 2 - iTunes Rentals crash

Excitedly booted up the new ATV to watch my first film rental tonight off the store.

Film loaded and was ready to play pretty quickly, no issues. Paused it after about 20 mins - restarted no issues. Paused it again after another 30 mins - upon returning it wouldn't resume playing. After returning to the top menu I reselected the rental and it quoted a ludicrous time to wait to play (136 mins).

Conducted a full system reset (inc router) suspecting network problems (although I would have expected the 8gb cache to have been loaded with the stream of the entire film by now...but anyway).

No luck .

Streaming from my itunes library is rapid with no problems.

Anyone having the same problem with rentals?

I note on the Apple discussions pages that others are:

Help anyone?

Update (sunday morning UK time) - everything appears to be working fine. Films ready to go very quickly etc.

Now suspect it was the peak saturday night demand on the itunes store!?
