I have a problem with Front Row trailers, they've been working great on Tiger, no buffering, almost instant start, never had any problem. But on Leopard, I cannot watch a single trailer all the way, it buffers every 60-70 seconds. I've opened Activity Monitor in the background to see how much bandwidth it is using, and it showed me a consistent 170KB/s. I have a 2mbit connection, for example when I'm watching an trailer on apple.com, Activity Monitor shows a steady 250-255KB/s, why can't Front Row use more bandwidth? It's very irritating.

Has anyone experienced this problem?

I haven't tried yet (I will in a second). Do they work in the new Movie widget for you?

Ok, takes FOREVER to load.

Wierd, I've never been patient enough to watch a trailer in Tiger's Frontrow because it was always loading (my wireless network isn't slow) and never started playing.

Leopard Front row Trailers are crap!

I have the same chunky trailer delays as the rest of you. Really sucks b/c that was a favorite feature in tiger. Anyone figure out how to fix it yet?

I just noticed this today and I never had it before. Also since I am on a 100MB/s up and down fiber optic connection here in Japan I know it is not a bandwidth issue. It does indeed seem to be buffering until the entire file loads but then it still stops intermittently as if it is choking which one wouldn't expect if it had completely loaded.
