@Mauricio, sorry to take so long to test this. Mine took about 2:00 to get up to 4300 kbps and 2:46 to 5800. It then meandered between the two until 5:34 when it dropped to 3000 and then to 1750 at 6:39. It got back up to 3000 at 7:52 before dropping to 2350 again at 8:44 where it stayed until the end.


I tried the same on my PS3. While it's difficult to compare eggs with eggs, the PS3 got up to 4300 at 1:26 and 5800 at 3:25. It alternated between the two right until 10:10, staying at 5800 for 5 minutes before dropping to 3000 and then to 2350 at 11:00.


On the face of it, it does look as if the Fire TV is running slower. I'm having problems with Hulu as well, with it often taking 4 or 5 attempts for it to log in without it timing out. I haven't tried Hulu on the PS3 yet.

Interesting what a difference one day makes. Watched an episode of The Man in the High Castle on Amazon on the Fire TV and it was 1080p pretty much all of the way through.
