    I would love to see the d/l and connection speed. All that I have on the hr20 is % d/l and not the speed of the d/l. If it could be based upon mbps and then I can determine if I am having ISP issues, DOD issues, or equipment issues. On another post, there are some links that we are able use and see our ISP connection speed from our computer, but that doesn't really tell us what is going on with the hr20.
    I am connected with a Buffalo wireless ethernet adapter and it is working well. However, I am not sure at what speed or the quality of that connection is.

    Could prevent complaints about DOD d/l speeds to DTV when it is actually an ISP or internet equipment issue.

    Just an idea.

    Except, of course, if a speed decrease is because the DirecTV video servers had an issue or their bandwidth became constrained.
    Download speed can be helpful, but a lot of the time you can't be sure why something slows down.

    the other day I had to use my laptop to check the speed to the hr20.

    I suppose you could pick up that new Belkin N1 Vision router that shows lots of real-time information. If it's worth $200 to find out the speed.
