Ridiculous is the only way to describe Apple TV - I have a 50mbps internet speed from TWC and I did a speed test right next to the apple tv on my lap top and I am getting that speed, yet a 43 minute tv show takes over an hour to download.  F'n piece of crap.


AppleTV 2, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Have you verified if there's any interference on the network using istumbler?

     

    Are you using your ISPs DNS?

     

    Some ISPs have also been known to throttle.

    I downloaded istumbler and ran it and it says level 48% and noise at 13% - not sure what that means. I have no idea what you mean by using my ISP's DNS.  I have never had this problem before.

    Your signal isn't strong and there looks to be some interference, could be from other networks or other devices/appliances. Refer to your router manual on how to change settings. Distance between device and router can also increase interference.

     

    At the bottom of this page it discusses DNS. I doubt this is the issue but best to ensure its set to default
