seemed to happen OK - then at 4 mins into The Office the video paused - and
then after a minute or so dropped back to main menu with the dreaded 'Video
frame buffering failed too many times'. I wonder why it took 4 minutes.

Interesting...I noticed the same pattern the other day. Every time the
error occurred in the middle of a program, it did it at xx:x4 o'clock. Eg.
at 10:04, 10:14, 10:24, etc. And this was on a news-channel with program
transitions every 10 minutes - 10:00, 10:10, 10:20 etc.

I haven't had time to verify this any further, but I'm fairly sure that all
occurrences I've had of buffer errors, which didn't occur at program
transitions, happened at the beginning of a program. It is not unlikely
that this always was 4 minutes into the program.

Best regards
