    I have the same problem. I have used two different cable modems and two different routers and have the same problem. Both are wired.

    I can steam with the iPad wireless thru the dish app but there is a constant problem streaming with the hopper.

    There is a problem with the hopper and blockbuster.

    My hopper streams Bb@home just fine. Have you tried resetting your hopper and try again?

    Yup, may be too many downloading. Particularly because of the holidays.

    the only issue I have had recently was trying to download the movie Darling Companion (from VOD, not BB). Anytime I tried to dload it, it just wouldn't finish the start-up process and kill the whole download thing altogether (no other movies would download even if you moved them to top of que). I played around for a few days and once I stopped trying to dload Darling Companion altogether, everything worked fine. I'm guessing there was an issue with that one particular "file" that was killing the system.

    i just started using bb and yes, i have this problem. all other internet functions with my hopper are fine. blockbuster movies fail to download correctly about 3 out of 4 times. but if i keep trying i will eventually get it.
