Maybe it is my imagination, but it appears that when I have a movie being downloaded to my DVR, my internet access times go to hell.  Does the DVR pump requests for the video as fast as possible, or does it meter it so that it doesn't shut other access down.  I am a 18Mbit connection

I think this always depends on the server being accessed and/or the isp. Have you been following the little war going on between Verizon and Netflix each blaming the other for slow downloads?

There's another thread somewhere where downloading a movie was chewing up 160GB/day of data usage. These are the first such reports I've seen.

D* will send it to you as fast as (your connection and) it's servers allow, which I think was somewhere around 10 to 12 Mbps on their end. Last I heard, no matter how fat your end is they won't exceed 12 Mbps on their end, so you should have 6 Mbps left over in your pipe. You also may have something set in your router which gives D* priority (or any streaming content). Try turning QoS OFF in your router settings. I had to do this for one router I owned.

It does hog my bandwidth, but I have a poopy Verizon DSL service.

It will use some portion, but no where near 18MB. I do most of my downloading while I am asleep. You have something else going on.
