    OK, dumb question, does the timing test for our current homework need to be done from the HR2X we registered or any HR2X that has the widget appliction on it? If it has to be the registered box can someone please delete the test answer that I put out there?
    Thanks

    Have you logged onto http://www.iamanedgecutter.com/Projects/Widgets/ ? If you're accepted there's a message there and then another section "Widget work for Everyone" that asked to do some timing tests.

    Ah, that was added since the last time I had logged into that site.

    Never mind.

    instantaneous when staying on the same channel.

    Well, since Doug's asking everyone to provide times I guess it doesn't need to be just the registered unit.

    Yes, I was asked to invite everyone for that particular test. I'm sure there will be more, but there is nothing to pass on just yet.

    consistent 2-second response for me to get the dock and 1 additional second for the "Coming Soon" to scroll into place.

    In my case, I have 11 networked devices, four of which are wireless. My Hr20-700s are connected to the network via a Gigabit 8-port switch.

    Is it of any significance what kind of load there is on the home network or how many networked devices are present or in what configuration the network is set up?

    Since you're all switched, which basically set up point to point connections when needed I wouldn't think activity just within your network would be an issue. The issue would be the upling to your internet connection and the traffic on that link.

    I'm not sure if the load makes that much of a difference or not .. I suspect the biggest factor is your bandwidth to the Internet, but there could be other factors.

    Thanks guys.

    I do live in a condo with outdated wiring in the community, and there are hours where connectivity just tanks (like 3 pm to 8 pm). That's the problem with low-cost shared bandwidth.

    Cablevision says I can upgrade to Optimum Boost and get up to 30Mbps down for only an extra $9.95 a month, so I may look into this someday ...

    3 seconds here with 4.0 Mbps. Out of curiosity I ran a speed test on my pc and hit 3.5, so the system is a little slow tonight. That could have something to do with the nasty storms we are getting (I am hooked up to a wi-max like system).

    FWIW, yes, I realize most services don't hit the advertised speeds, but ours usually does. I can typically get over 4.0 on our service.
