Amazon Vod Unwatchable

I rented Man of Steel HD but couldn't watch it. For those of you who can remember VHS tapes with copy protection, if you tried copying one of those tapes, the vertical stabilizer circuit would go crazy. You could hear the movie but it was impossible to watch. The picture was jittery and wavy. Well that's how it was trying to watch Man of Steel. I contacted Amazon and they sent me another download of the movie. Same results. I have the Amazon VOD channel on my ROKU and tried watching the movie. The movie was just fine.

Has anyone else experienced this problem. It's the first time this has occurred.

I've rented a bunch of movies from Amazon and never had this problem. TiVo is the only device that uses Amazon's download service, rather then streaming, maybe there is something wrong with the download encode?

I saw Man of Steel in the theater and didn't like it, so I wont be renting it to test sorry.
