    Huh! It must auto-cache stuff it guesses you will want to watch in the background while it's sitting there, chilling, before you start watching TV.

    "There's a "best value buy box" for videos. It shows you the different options for watching a show, so you can pick the cheapest one."

    If only it listed iTunes too!

    Edit: Buuuuuut "Ugh --- apparently that feature only supports Amazon and Hulu Plus right now."
