Some channels it works flawlessly, others not so much. I have more issues with OTA, for example. I think part of this also stems from changes Dish had to make as a result of the Tivo lawsuit... so they lost the ability to do some of this better since Tivo kept winning in court.Stewart Vernon said:Behavior varies for SD vs HD... but also for MPEG2 vs MPEG4 channels, and higher bitrate vs lower bitrate channels. It is apparently "optimized" for a particular set of circumstances, and for the rest of the time it can vary quite a bit.
