Me three.  I haven't had the patience to watch Channel 9 since last year when the streaming issues started.  Even low res is slow to download.  15 minutes of video that takes 25 minutes to download.  This happens consistently with


  XP SP3, Silverlight or Media Player

  Win 7 Ultimate with or without Silverlight.


  There is a total of 293 MB for a 23.5 minute show.  Is this the right compression rate for WMV (low)?  I'd rather have reduced quality and instant play with no stalls or dropouts on a 1.5 MB DSL.
