You're wandering way off the range by now, and as such I'm not sure what's going on.


With the CCK, you have both the Genie & HR24 being fed through a common point.

If they're acting the same, then this suggests "some normality".

A wildcard may be the OnDemand recording itself, so comparing others should help to weed out a bad OnDemand file on DirecTV's end. 


i have an old HR20 that i haven't deactivated yet, maybe i'll hook that up tomorrow and give that a shot to see if it acts the same as the 24...

I've noticed HBO and Cinemax on demand takes longer by far than most other on demand channels.
I have 30 mbps service and a sopranos episode takes longer to download than the show is long.
