    I haven't seen any problems with MPEG-2 out of my HR20, which only has a 100 Mb/s ethernet port connecting my DECA.

    As far as I know all the DVRs only have 100 Mb/s ethernet ports.

    Here is some more bandwidth numbers for SD which were recorded on satellite on my HR23 on the same network that I mentioned above.. Everything worked perfectly.

    Chelsea Lately 3.8 -4.5 Mbps
    The View (abc east) 2 - 3.8 Mbps
    The Soup 1 - 2 Mbps

    I believe The Soup is recored in HD at the studio as of last month but Dtv does not broadcast the show in HD if that matters to anybody. I'm not sure how all that works.

    Hit the Start button and in the search box, type 'Resource Monitor' (with no quotes)

    It's in Accessories / System Tools / Resource monitor. But you can start most anything with the search entry. . . Notepad, Device Manager, Firewall . . anything that comes up as an application or applet.

    I have been running DirecTV2PC for some time with no issues.

    As of recently once it starts the only thing I get is "DIRECTV2PC is Checking for Product Updates". It just hangs there. I've tried rebooting the computer, but it stll does the same thing.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't remember having a problem with my old HR20-700, but it died, got replaced by an HR20-100 - maybe difference in models? Note, I'm not saying the port is different, rather wondering if the chipset inside having to stream the data might have changed.

    Someone mentioned 720p/1080i - I'll have to go back and check, not sure I've paid attention to if it was channel specific.

    Thanks Dennis. I finally found it but using Resource Monitor wouldn't work so I just put in Monitor* and it popped up.

    Thanks again for the Info.

    When I run DIRECTV2PC on my Windows 7 x64 computer, it disables the Aero interface. Is there anything that can be done about that? I run 2 monitors, and from my office it is nice to be able to watch a show on 1 monitor, and work on the other....

    It isn't a deal breaker perse, but it is rather annoying that a program we use in 2010 can't work on an interface first introduced in 2006 with Vista.

    My Living Room LCD is down for the count again, so I finally looked at DirecTV2PC.

    Found out some things trying to it to work on three different laptops.

    Each laptop needs a different ACTIVATION NUMBER. But DirecTV will only send out one Activation Number per email address. To get a second, you need a second email address.

    BTW, it working fine on the both laptops I put it on so far.

    It's two per email address, but I'd guess you use one earlier, and they don't forget.

    Yep, it was in my saved emails for registry numbers.

    It would be nice if you could look 'em up.
