    I recently upgraded to a HR-44 and I've noticed that when I try to record on demand I don't get to choose the download speed. On my HR-24 when I record on demand it gives me a choice for higher quality or faster download speed, the 44 does not have this option. I always selected the faster download before since I can't see a difference. Is there a way to select faster downloads on the 44 or is that just the way it is?

    the watch now is the faster download. the "record" IIRC will give you the better quality

    I usually download several episodes to watch later and watch something else while they download. Can I hit watch now, then go to another channel and watch what I downloaded later? I guess this is something they changed in the genie.
