I've downloaded half-a dozen episodes of DEADWOOD and a couple movies on the current NR and they all played back without an issue. Now, that being said, I haven't tried any of the specific stuff some have reported as being problematic. I believe Laxguy has said one of his comedy specials has caused an issue. I'll try downloading that tonight as a test. For what it's worth, my HR34 is connected by ethernet to the rest of the LAN and is the de facto bridge for everything on the DECA cloud to the rest of the 'net.
