    It might serve you well to provide a bit more data such as how are each connected (cable or WiFi etc.), distance from router if WiFi (are they in the same place etc.). I am not saying this will lend itself entirely to a solution but it may go a long way with others who also have ATV and can lend real world experience advice.

    Not sure about the XBOX but my ATV starts downloading the movie while watching it. Since I have a fast connection it will download the entire movie much quicker then I am watching it. So, if I pause the movie the entire movie can download then I can watch without further downloading.
