There is not.
The quality on the Xbox app will automatically adjust based on the strength of your connection.
So if your connection is strong it will automatically default to streaming in HD (720p).

We are looking at the possibility of adding the option to change the setting.

Are you certain you are getting that speed on the Xbox (and more importantly, getting good speed consistently)? Try this in the version of IE on the Xbox:

Could be true...I'm assuming its the same speed as my desktop since they are both hard lined.

Another thing to keep in mind is the way the current "Bar / HD" system is set up.
It goes based on the total bit rate of the video being streamed.
If the bit rate of the video is not high enough, even though it is streaming at max quality it will not light up the HD light.

We're working on a better way to indicate what resolution the video is streaming in.

Awesome....I've noticed that most of my streams start off looking SD or 780 and get better as soon as the intro roles. Still good content no matter
