I used Watch Instantly for the first time last night. Everything worked OK except for one problem. The video was very choppy constantly (as opposed to the choppiness every 10-15 minutes other people have reported when the download catches up). For example, I was watching Red Dwarf, and when the spaceship moved across the screen it moved in discreet 1" movements.
I'm wondering if it is the result of running Windows XP from within VMWARE (on an Ubuntu host) or if it is my video card. I have an older card--I think it is a 64MB card. (I forget--I've had it for years.) I don't think it is a hard drive issue--the drive is a newer, fast drive with no known hardware issues.
