OK, so let me get this straight, if I want to stream 1080p video I have to pause the video and wait until the buffer bar fills up. I did this, it takes a good five minutes for the buffer to fill then I can watch about ten minutes more of video and then I have to wash, rinse, repeat again. Not a very enjoyable way to watch a movie. There has got to be a better way. Is there any way to increase the buffer size or the speed at which it re-builds? I don't care if I have to wait 20-30 minutes at the beginning of a movie - it's still better than watching ten minutes of a movie ( btw, I am waiting for the buffer to fill up again while I write this post) and then have to wait again after watching another ten minutes of video ( The Big Lebowski - verrry funny
). What perplexes me the most is some 1080p movies I have ( .mkv, avc3, aac, no DTS) work perfectly, no stuttering, fantastic picture (on my 61" Samsung 1080p DLP tv), excellent 5.1 sound, so why is it that some movies stutter and some don't?

EDIT: actually, it's about six or seven minutes of video, not ten, before I have to fill up the buffer again. Will this whole buffering problem go away if I get a faster CPU, i.e. dual or quad core, 2.8 or higher? as I would gladly upgrade my entire rig if this buffering problem would cease to exist.
EDIT#2 BTW, Don't even think of rewinding while watching a movie cause it will completely dump your buffer and you'll have to re-load it again.
