thanks for the reply.
It just gives you some generic info like "Medium/SD, High/SD, High/HD, X-High/HD and what the sound is. It's not bad, but my big complaint (among others) is that you can't tell if it's 720p or 1080p (since X-High/HD is apparently used for both). And of course I usually like to know how long the movie is and how much I have left, and as pointed out, the time elapsed/remaining time is currently wonky. It's not that it's bad (words instead of bars) but I also find the text to be somewhat small (even on my 50" tv)....I feel I need bifocals to read it sometimes.
Of course, on the 360, you know you're getting 720p if it says "HD" because it doesn't have access (currently) to 1080p material.
Agreed on the speed of it though. I find the app loads loads faster on the 360, but it actually starts playing faster on the PS3. So it balances out for me, since on the PS3 I'm waiting for the app to actually load, while on the 360 I'm waiting for the title to start.
Again, I am stuck with this interface: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tNRgBKEUCo
If I had this interface, I'd probably be happier with it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVcmu...eature=related
Or even better, the one they advertised when they announced it. My app even sucks worse because in each genre it will only show 75 titles (I know michaelscott has one that shows 200 titles). And navigating my app seems to be slower than videos I've seen of the other interfaces....like I can press left or right to get to other titles and it seems like there's a 1/2 second delay before it responds.
Interestingly enough, the Vudu app on the PS3 functions the same way as Netflix, in regards to backing out (I can't) and FF and Rewind. I still refuse to know why FF and Rewind on the remote doesn't work to FF and Rewind in neither the Netflix nor the Vudu App (but do work for Blu-Ray playback). In the apps you have to use the left/right/up/down arrows or rocker (or whatever your remote has) to do it. I find it bizarre....especially when I had to explain to my non-techie wife how to navigate the apps. It's like they built it to be used with the controller and not a remote.
