I am running XP Home with highspeed lite connected through local cable provider. I have tried downloading movies to watch, it takes approximately 8 hours to stream a 2 hour movie. That's just to watch, I'd hate to have to download one to burn. Does anyone out there have any suggestions on how to speed this up? Is there some kind of software that I can install to make things go faster? :thumbsup:
