I've had several routers from different manufacturers and I can't remember one that let me measure the speed of any device except my internet connection. I like 5GHz for quality mostly, since there are a few servers near me on 2.4GHZ. I also see over a dozen pads and phones on 802.11ac so I like my ugly but strong Netgear R7500. I know that I don't know everything when it comes to channels and bandwidth. I do know it makes a difference. My 2.4GHZ link is on channel 1 and my 5GHz link is on channel 153. I have also observed that some utilities can not display accurate information since they were designed before the 802.11a and ac became popular. One I recommend is inSSIDer which has a free version for home use. It will tell you your channel quality and the strength of surrounding signals. My Win8.1 PC shows me the phones and other non-router devices. It's a crowded world. I'm pretty rural yet see a lot of EM "noise."
To my knowledge, the TiVo doesn't have any diag that shows it's network speed to the router. You can measure speed between TiVo boxes and a PC can measure the speed of data from the TiVo, through the router, and on to your PC. Desktop does that, and I think FTP can also be used, but I never tried it.
The speed between my two Premieres is just over 60Mbps. Both are 802.11ac to the router. One goes to a Netgear EX6200 and the other uses a Linksys WUMC710. My Roamio uses an ASUS EA-N66R.
