I was able to stream SD easily, HD, not so much. I just download it an hour or so before, 30 minutes is usually more than enough. I have 15MBPS download speed.

That's pretty much my experience now also---but sometimes I do have to download for a lot longer for HD movies

Sure would be nice if they could straighten out the daily deleting of downloaded 'MY RENTALS' each night when the system updates. For those movies that take a long time to download it's a PITA when I can't watch them prior to them disappearing

btw-I have a 722k running L690

I have L688 on the 722k. Had hoped L690 would fix that, guess not. Oh well, it is a bother, but, I guess I'll have to work around it for a while then.

Looks like I will get 8 discs "by mail" in my first month. Some of the by mail are exchanges in the local store. I could actually do more than 8, but, just don't have the time.
