    Zune HD streaming for Xbox360

    Has anyone here tried this yet?

    I tried it last night for the 4 minute tester of Avatar, and although that's in standard definition it was still good to watch. So anyone else tried this and what sort of connection speed do you need to get the full HD experience?

    I watched the trailer of Avatar in HD, worked fine for me with no buffering or lag etc.
    Wanted to then watch the SD version to compare but it wouldn't let me.

    cheers Buckle, I'm only running 2meg BB so it said my net wasn't fast enough to get HD, but it was still good. Though not as good as seeing the full film for the uh......4th time

    You must be very close to being able to get it then. My router connects at 3.5-4meg, but only get a download speed around 2.5.

    I wasn't overly impressed by it, which is why I wanted to watch the SD version to compare. Not really my type of film though so was only really interested in seeing the quality on Zune as it was free.

    Fair enough mate, but thanks for checking, when I did it last night, it was nearly at full HD, but not quite, probs 1 bar away, might check it again though, or could give my ISP a ring and tell um i am not impressed with the service

    I just streamed it rather than downloading, worked fine.
