Got the new apple tv about 2 weeks ago. When I rent a hd show, it stops streaming every 5-10 minutes, makes it seem like its trying to buffer... but it never ends... when I click menu, and then play that episode starting from where I left off, it works just fine right away without a wait. Don't see what the problem is. Seems like apple tv problem and not a connection problem. Same problem with Netflix streaming. Never had this problem using PS3, XBOX360 or Tivo to stream Netflix HD. My router is an AirPort Extreme. Another issue is the appletv does not wake up my computer to stream my itunes stuff... I have to go up to the 2nd floor from the basement just to wake it so I can stream. At this point I am most likely going to return the appletv, not sure how long we have to wait for an update to fix these issues.
