    Well, since we only just got Movie Rentals here in the UK, I thought I'd finally give it a shot. My internet started going really slow (got to love Virgin Media) and to watch the movie in SD it was going to be an hour before I could start watching.

    So, left it and decided to watch a few TV Shows. I came back to check on the Movie and it started resuming. I take it you can't download a movie in the background while watching TV Shows on the Apple TV?

    Anyway, I resumed the download, and then change the TV channel. I decided to check on the download again, and turned the TV to HDMI1. Usual screen flicker etc and then all I saw was the Apple logo, as if the Apple TV had just restarted itself.

    There was no record of me renting the movie (the Rented Movies tab had gone), and I didn't fancy trying again.

    I need to check if I've been charged for this. Never saw a single second of the movie. Pretty annoyed that it was such a big failure. Considering it was at 12:30 midnight, it isn't as if it was peak times. Damn Virgin.
