    It was a quire frustrating :apple:TV weekend in my house. I've not had problem one with download speed or operation until this weekend. Following the 2.01 update I was constantly losing my connection - solved this by turning off "wide channels" on the AEBS after doing some research.

    My wife and I then tried renting a movie Saturday night and it was painfully slow - was originally telling me I could expect to watch it in 5 days!!

    It was a rainy Sunday afternoon so the kids rented Underdog which downloaded very quickly but then later that night I was having trouble again. Even trailers were slow to load and stuttered.

    I checked my cable connection speed which was at the typical 5 - 6M and then checked my network speed by sync'ing a 1GB video file - that took a little less than 4 minutes which I would expect using 802.11n. So everything was good on my end. I hope this isn't a trend as it will kill the usability of the device.

    painfully slow

    I had the same problem. I couldn't even watch trailers let alone try and rent a movie. I have not tried it since the weekend. Very frustrating.
