You are of course correct, I get my HMs crossed..... Funny on the delay. I have never seen that. By the time I navigate from the vidmgr menu to my shows, its already transferring and ready to watch from the begining. Watching pytivo in the console window, the delay while it communicates with mind.tivo.com is only a few seconds at worst, usually instant. The transfer to the tivo starts as soon as the mind.tivo.com exchange is complete....unless mind.tivo.com is down or I am having a network issue.
