    :confused: How long "should" it take my HR22 to download a 2.5hr HD movie? My wife starting downloading the movie over 2 hours ago, and it's still only 82% complete. At what point can you start watching the movie without constantly "catching up" to the download progress point and having to wait for buffering? BTW, my HR22 is hardwired to the internet via DECA.

    Lot of variables in that answer... but you can start watching the program once the download indicator turns green.

    It depends 100% on your internet connection speed.
    I have 15Mbps, and HD VOD downloads much faster than I can watch it.

    And I have 3Mbps DSL and it takes forever. Faster Internet service is the key!
