I just selected the Hangover II to rent on VOD. The orange arrow down then popped up. So I figured I had to wait for my "video on demand (less a few minutes)" to download.

But, The download isn't happening. The progress bar is not changing, and the percentage is at 0%

So, I decided to force buy it from the List, Select Movie Menu, Buy/Play. the movie started playing, and about 10 seconds later a message pops up that says "buffering"

Uh, it's been 10 minutes now, and the percentage is now at 4%.

any suggestions?

1080p ? If that is the case....you probably have about an hour depending on your internet connection.

The only ones that a truely on demand are those that have the green checkmark on them. Those have already been downloaded to the reserved section of your DVR harddrive and can be played instantly. All others need to be downloaded and if they are 1080p, it will be a bit before enough is buffered before you can start watching without interruption.
