    Took about 4 to 5 minutes to download (cable on wireless N) and its been about 8 minutes installing with about 85% done....

    EDIT:

    it goes through the progress bar screen three times - the second and third times are much faster than the first.

    Downloading (slowly) in the UK - I wonder what it will give me*, given that movie rentals aren't an option here.

    *I know - I'm downloading the update without knowing much about it at all. At least it is going on relatively cheap (reconditioned) hardware, so if I don't like it I can roll back and set my firewall to deny traffic to mesu.

    Alright, who is going to be the first to verify Bitrate max, etc for those of you who have HD movies?

    See if they increased it, but didn't tell everyone like they are doing on the iPhone.

    Any chance that 5.1 works on Handbrake encoded DVDs?
