      Wow. file Size for WMV is pretty big. Im donwloading now, and at 100kb/s it will take roughly an hour. Looking forward to watching though....

      I'd like a smaller download please Tongue Out I have severe problesm with my Internet connection at the moment and am limited to 64k Sad

    • PerfectPhase

      Get the iPod stream, it's only 83Mb, if that's to much just listen to the mp3/wma streams.  If you can't play mp4 go here or here for codecs)

      That dice machine is awsome!

      Thank you for the 16:9 video format! I like the high bitrate of WMV(high) too, please keep it this way.

      The "Dice-O-Matic" machine is really brilliant! I run a gaming website too (www.funwin.com) and i hear the same complaints from players every day - i need this machine!!!!

      If the WMVs are too big, you may not be able to maintain the wormhole long enough to get them in one shot. The PowerShell BITS cmdlets can help with that issue though. Cool

      Seriously, on top of being great shows in general, it was cool that Tablet PCs were often used in the SG series (particularly Atlantis). MS should've capitilized on that. Tablets have never gotten much TV marketing. Hopefully they'll get a much needed push with Windows 7's release.

      The 16:9 format is great, but it does something weird to the silverlight player. Theres a big black band in the bottom 1/4th of the screen, with the player controls just above that.

    • Rodney McKay

      No problem with the wormholes! My ZPM is fully charged and my latest compression algorithms can download the file within a few seconds - as long as Zelenka keeps his fingers from my tablet PC!
