    Very cool. Earl, what is your (I'm assuming you took the pics) download speed and what is the amount of time your shows are taking to download (just to get a feel for the speed)?

    You dont have to have any SERVER on your pc to use vod, just internet connected. Tversity allows you to share your music and photos.

    Very cool, I'm all set to start the DOD here :) I May need to get a new DSL roughter this one keeps reseting its self, or I may need to pull a few systems off of it the network power demand may be to much?

    I am on Comcast Broadband, so anywhere from 6-12 depending on burst speeds.

    Most of the content was comming down pretty quickly....
    I didn't clock it though.

    That's what I'm wondering too. How soon can you start watching something? And, does it download fast enough that you can say watch the first 10-15 mins and have enough downloaded that you can FF past the first commercials? Assuming it still has commercials.

    On most of the material I was doing the review with..
    With in a minute or so, you could start playback.

    The one HD I tried, did take longer...

    WOW this sounds so cool!! Nice job. :D

    Earl, having all of this done over the internet, will this eventually eliminate the need to have a phone land line, will the box be able to "phone home" over the internet? I know E* is getting ready to this soon with their receivers.

    Thanks!

    Not bad. Curious how long HD will be though - 5 minutes, 10 minutes, an hour? Hopefully it's not that bad.
