Thanks for the tip on the US iTunes account.
Not sure about you, but I'm having a stack of trouble trying to get a stable connection. Watched a bit of stuff last night, most movies appear only to be in 2 chanel stereo and not sure what market Netflix is appealing too, but seems there are a lot of movie titles missing and a lot of it seems to be older stuff. Maybe they are affliiated with a particular studio?
Anyway, today, I can browse the menu's ok but when trying to watch something, just get the spnning wheel for a while then the ATV resets, or, get a yellow triangle with an "!" in it saying connection error. I've seen this mentioned else where with a bit of Googling. ATV is at the latest 4.4.4 version.
I'll stick at it, but not really blowing my socks off at the moment.
Most of the older ones are stereo but the new movies I've watched are 5.1DD.
I wonder if 4mbps is simply too slow? At 5.5mbps even the HD content looks like SD but its acceptable for us. Your ISP can have a big impact too, especially if they run badly congested backhaul to the exchanges (or worse youre on a Telstra RIM) like the ultra cut price ISP's do!
I'll personally just keep voting Labour (and encouraging anyone else who'll listen) till the NBN is completed and we no longer have to rely on a rotting PSTN system that wasn't designed to carry data in the first place!
