    I have the newest version of itunes. I just recently down loaded four tv episodes because I missed them. The first two episodes of Lost played fine. When I played Battlestar Galactica, it would start out normal but as time passed, more frames would dissappear. Sound stays the same but if I miss an important thing I can't see it. Some times I'll miss up to 3 seconds of video or more at a time! What's going on?!:mad:

    I've seen similar problems on our iBook and on a work PC. My best guess is that the new larger movies are more memory and processor intensive. It is really irritating though, sure they're sharper, but if I can't watch them properly what good does it do me?

    Not at the beach...
    Are you running iTunes on the 800MHz eMac listed in your sig?
    If so, that why.

    That and iTunes video playback sucks.
