I am noticing download speeds of only 1-3 Mb/s with great fluctuations when doing VOD. I have tested my download speeds using speedtest.net which shows download speed around 4300+ kbs.

Anyone else see anything like this?

This is by design .. Once you've reached a certain speed, the expectation is that you can watch VOD relatively live ..
just a few weeks ago, I would get a consistent 5 Mb/s download..at the slower speeds, i cannot watch it almost live anymore..
I would guess the addition of being able to schedule from the web which they just started pushing may have something to do with this--come back in a week and tell us if you still see that.
I am downloading SD right now. It is coming down at about 2mb. But last week downloading HD it was more like 5mb.
