I'm watching a movie that is very dark, and it looks awful in low quality.

Is it possible to force Amazon Instant Video into high quality?

I am OK with long buffering times.

If you watch from the Amazon Unbox Player, you can wait for the movie to completely (or partially) download in high-ish quality before watching it.
