I just purchased the Roku HD Streaming device (the 720p version) and I've been streaming videos from Hulu Plus (Daily Shows and Colbert Reports - yes, I'm a Directv customer looking for another way to get the only two programs I really care about from Viacom). My download speed is about 3.3 mbps and I'm using the HDMI cable. I've noticed that I have a hard time starting a video. Frequently it freezes at the end of the initial commercial, sometimes later. If I pause it or stop it for a while and then restart it two or three times, I've noticed that the video will frequently start playing without a problem after that. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a kind of informal protocal one should follow streaming these videos such as: start it, pause it for a couple minutes, then start . . . to insure a consistent playing of the video?
