    I'm having problems with the download speed on my ATV2. The first HD movie I rented paused at least 10 times throughout the movie. Took about twice as long to watch the movie because it kept buffering.

    My first thought was that maybe the Internet connection is slow, but that's not the case. I Tried running a speed test multiple times while it was buffering, and got constant 8-9Mbps download speed and 0.9Mbps upload. After the movie finished, test results showed 10Mbps up, 1Mbps down. My router is a 2009 airport express, and the ATV is only a room away from it. Internet connection should not be a problem.

    So could this be a problem with Apple servers, flawed iOS 4.1 ATV firmware, or a hardware problem? I can't think of what else could possible be a problem... (even reset the ATV in the middle of movie, along with router/modem)
