Lucky you. I'd like to be able to download a movie in a few days. The thought of downloading a movie in a few hours is just mind-boggling. In a few minutes is science fiction to me.

We're getting there. The HDR version of Annihilation (~67.3 GB) downloaded for me in 48 minutes (186.9 Mbps). The UHD version of Black Panther (~71 GB) took 42 mins (224.4 Mbps).

You're right. Got a little over-excited with my abbreviations there. Fixed.

Haha, I was just thinking if you had that much speed, you should be hosting the movies for Kscape!

So much more happens to govern the download speed than pure bandwidth. 30 MBís is my average despite a 300 / 400 MBís contracted business service. Perhaps the hosting service / relays here in Europe need to improve to match what seems to be available in the US

Just got my internet speed upgraded to 300Mbps. It has only been a couple of days, but I seem to be topping out at around 160Mbps for movie downloads from the store (I have set my maximum download speed to 250Mbps).

According to Kaleidescape support, the limiting factor becomes the processor in the Kaleidescape component and then writing the data to the hard drive. I am using a Terra server with kOS 10.3.1, which has implemented some software improvements to speed up downloads. Apparently Strato is limited by the player-class chip, but Terra has a more powerful CPU and has more opportunity to speed up.

I am curious where others are topping out, but what I am seeing so far confirms that I should not expect to see any improvement in movie download times by upgrading to a 500Mbps or gigabit ďbusiness-dentialĒ commercial grade internet service offered by my ISP.

I did, however, just come across this on my ISPís web site:

Direct Peering
Get the media you want straight from the source. Our Media-Grade Internet lets you Direct Peer
with just about everyone from Netflix to Google to Amazon.

Itís like an information expressway straight to your doorstep.
Which means you get those sites better and faster than everyone else. Say goodbye to buffering!


Anybody know if this could be a possibility with the Kaleidescape Store?

What are you showing in the History tab of your Kaleidescape browser interface as your actual download speed for recent downloads?

Many thanks.
