    how does watch now actually work? everytime i click on a program to watch now, it will work fine, but it actually buffers and records on the playlist? i thought watch now would be to watch a program that is already recorded on the hard drive and not supposed to record to the playlist because you cant fast forward through the program because it is buffering? does anyone know really how this is supposed to work, because video on demand should be no buffering if the program is already recorded on the hard drive?

    It is not recorded on the harddrive when you click watch now it starts playing and saves to your harddrive for later playback.

    I found that Watch Now to be a bit lagging. Problem due to my network.

    Watch Now plays from your drive if the program is already on it, does a quicker download and starts playing if it is not on your drive and needs to be downloaded.

    How do you know if the show is on the drive or not when you use Watch Now?
