Interesting observations on the resolution. I am watching tonight on Apple TV for the first time since Friday. No freezes so far. I do hope any down rezzing is temporary. I don't want to fight the HD-Lite battles of old again.
You do get the bonus of not having to wonder "Am I going to be able to watch this show?"On a side note, it makes me feel very slightly better about paying over triple the $35 price to have it delivered over satellite instead of broadband.
Someone asked about whats going with the stream limited to 720 (DTVN forum). They are either unaware stream has recently dropped the 1080 or just playing dumb to prevent feeding the sharks more blood. Why doesn't this surprise me?
