Instead of having the quality of the streaming videos be decreased, is there a way for me to let the better quality videos buffer for a while?

Thanks

Nope. Not yet.
I keep hoping for more from their video player but its not likely to happen soon. Maybe when they start with HD content it will also include a better player.

I have no idea what the home player is like (for TV viewing). I dont feel like spending the 99 dollars for it. Supposedly it is much better than anything Apple can come up with.

There is software that buffers almost the entire movie, Playon. It is a media server that allows content like hulu, netflix to be streamed to devices like directv DVR.
http://www.themediamall.com/playon
When paused the download continues and it builds a temp file with the movie content that continues to grow in size till it reached about 1.4GB for one hour.
Netflix is trying to switch everyone over to silverlight to display the content. That is causing some people problems.
