I'm going back through watching some shows that have locked up on me before with Task Manager running in the foreground so I can see what's happening. Every time there's a lockup or hesitation, DirecTV.exe drops to 2% CPU and System Idle Process jumps to upper 80 / lower 90% range. Is there a quality of service or something the developers can put into the viewer software itself to lock in a certain percentage of CPU processing? HD shows look to be about 40-50% when everything is running fine, SD shows mid 20's. Hope this helps. I used MusiCares Presents Brian Wilson (HD Net) and Caddyshack (awesome movie, HBO SD).
