    With the dependency of networking Mini's and using multiple room streaming, Tivo needs to add a much better network diagnostic menu option to allow the user to better analyze their network operation with networked Tivo devices similer to that which is included with the Tivo IOS stream app but better.

    Simply add in the settings, network screen, an intuitive client server diagnostic options to display statistics, load test a connection and display the results, both as thoughput capabilities, errors, etc.

    With so much now depending on moving larger amounts of data from one point to another on a home network, there is hardly anything right now that can offer the user an idea of how well the network transport is functioning. This wouldn't be at all difficult to implement, but right now we have little ability to know just how well a particular network is functioning, right now we it's like we are trying to drive a car down the road with no lights, dials or gauges on the dash working, no feedback at all! and when that car doesn't run right or crashes, the only option we have is to start replacing parts until it magically fixes it's self.

    I was just thinking this too.

    We're getting a lot of threads with broken network apps, and it's impossible to figure out without the right tools.
