    ok so i went and bought a rental movie...then hopped over to boxee for a bit and came back to my main apple tv menu...and hmmm..where do i find my rental movie? cant seem to find it...i never really went to rent a movie and changed the screen before it was done so this is weird.

    ah ok so i guess i cant do anything else on apple tv while it is "downloading" until it is finished.... kinda lame....but i think i figured my whole question out.

    I'm not sure that's true. Once it starts downloading, I can go do something else. You do, however, have to wait for the "Ready to play" indicator, which should really only be a minute or two after download starts. It says something along the lines of "press play to watch now or menu to watch later."

    doesn't starting boxee stop and restart the finder app on the appletv though?

    it's possible that doing so has killed the download process.
