yeah i've got that too. It'll give me one bar during peak times, and 4 bars otherwise. I called Netflix and they weren't too much help. They tried to tell me that my xbox could be running a different route to their servers than my laptop would, which is why i can stream w/o issues on my mac, but i get a low level tier (1 bar) on my xbox. I told him i come from a tech support background and that's a buncha crap. the longest time i got on a traceroute from my mac to their servers is 59ms. No way that would justify putting me at 1 bar.
in their defense tho, i had my buddy, who's running fios 20/20, try it at his place and he got 4 bars regardless. so my only guess is that there were just too many people in my area on at the same time.
