Hi there, I was hoping you could help me with this conundrum. I recently picked up the new Mini (edit: 2.0GHz), and upgraded it with 4gigs of RAM and a 7200RPM HDD, which has been running great through both heavy Photoshop work and the usual normal stuff. HOWEVER, whenever I rent a movie from iTunes it skips (or drops?) frames every couple of minutes throughout the entire thing, and these are SD movies! I don't have a problem with 480p online video, or the online 1080p Quicktime HD videos, or my own personal ripped DVDs, but for some reason, all three movies I've rented from iTunes so far have had this problem. I haven't purchased any movies from iTunes, so I can't say if they would have the same effect. Is there something I'm missing, or are the iTunes movies just poorly encoded? I look forward to your help!
