I ditched my cable DVR a few months ago for a Roamio and overall I've been happy with it. However, my biggest gripe is the abysmal transfer speeds. I have a very current 802.11N wireless router capable of 300Mb/s. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
In the roamio settings it says the wireless connection is excellent (>80%) but transferring files from PC to the Tivo is painfully slow. Its impossible to watch a program as its transferring and in the completed transfers log it says ~5Mb/s! On the PC side I'm using the Tivo Desktop app. Tried both auto and manual downloads and both are slow.
My phone on the same wifi connection can do a speed test out over my cable modem and it's 15Mb/s. So, it's a little ridiculous that this transfer speed within my network is so slow.
Any ideas for things I can check for settings or tests I can perform to debug this?
Edit: More Info on this (see attachment for detail):
Router admin panel shows the Tivo is connecting around 130Mb/s so my wireless connection speed is solid.
However, check out what Tivo Desktop shows me. I started transferring a 3412MB video file to my Tivo. At 100Mb/s, that should take under 4.5 minutes to transfer ((3412MB*8)/100Mb/s) / 60. Tivo desktop shows that 4 minutes of a 57 minute show have been transferred and that took 25 minutes.
My wireless N router is set to auto channel select.
