I'm looking at transfer on a new Elite, and seeing a sustained 5MB/s so 40Mb/s. My main router is only 10/100. Wonder if the router is slowing things down or if 40Mb/s is the limit for these. Either way, it's faster than real time.
Toshiba SD-H400 (retired/recycled), Tivo Series 2 (still in use!), Tivo HD, TiVo Series 3 THX, TiVo Premiere (All upgraded with extra HD goodness) and an XL4.
