I used to be with DirecTV and had two DVR's (HR-24 I believe) and one non-DVR HD receiver (HD-24???). Anyway, when I would watch programs from either DVR (recorded on either), the speed of FF, REW, etc. was fast. But when watching from the non-DVR it was painfully slow. It would take 5 seconds or more to start the FF process after the button was pressed. My question is, is this still the case?
