Not sure what this response meant by "noticible".
My DVR40 was at least twice as fast when changing channels. It wouldn't be so bad if the Info at the top updated quickly. When you change channels this is what I see.
Info bar comes up immeadiately.
0-1 second - channel # and Logo changes
1-2 seconds - program description changes
3-4 seconds - video and audio appears.
I do use the mini guide but my wife just like to change channels. Anyone want to tell her it can't be done faster? I can tell you her response!
That's probably a better way to describe it. It's like pressing the channel up a few times and the banner ends up not displaying for the channel I stopped on and 3-4 seconds later I get a picture with audio, but have no idea what channel or program I'm viewing.
In fact, thinking about this...I've had it where the last thing I see on the banner is channel 74, but I stopped on 75 and as soon as the video and audio come through, I'll be watching 75, but the banner has already disappeared. It's not just the picture that is lagging behind.
I'll switch from 72 to 78 and the banner disappears before the info in the banner has made it's way to the current channel's correct info. The banner disappears before it caught up to the channel I stopped on.
I was just playing with it. Try this and tell me if you get the same result...
Tune into 79. Channel down to 78 and immediately go back to 79. The last thing my banner shows is the info for 78, but in about 4 seconds, the picture and audio come up on channel 79. So it looks like I'm watching Raging Bull by the banner, but the program that displays is Get Out!
It doesn't happen everytime, but often enough that I get confused as to what I'm watching. :lol:
