sorry if i missed this before but,

how long has the HD quality stream meter been available when watching on demand?

My daughter asked to watch Secretariat and its in HD for free, i clicked watch now and figured it would take a few hours to download, instead it started in 30 seconds or less and after 5 minutes it was fully downloaded,plus it showed a 4 bar meter for streaming strength.

i was getting all 4 green bars.

it really worked a lot nicer than a few months back when i tried to watch a hd show.

722 also, i will check software tonight if anyone thinks this is new, i searched but didnt see anything.


my first thought when seeing it was that it must be part of the new Blockbuster streaming coming tomorrow...

Interface is still a PITA. streaming seems to start just a min or so after hitting it. So far so good on the streaming. PQ is related to the movie chosen. In this case it's an indy film and is just so-so. No pixelization or freezing.
