Advertisements I find that downloads like Amazon Unbox (recently made quite obvious with the pilots NBC put up) and other video downloads (like The Onion) seem to take way longer than I think they should on my TiVo. I've seen my connection (cable) at over 500KBps (yes, B). I know not everything is the same speed but... So it seems to have taken nearly a day or so (lets guess 18 hours) for each of the 1 hour (well, actually 42 min) pilots. Based on a 1 gig file (about the right size, IIRC) that comes out to about 15KBps. It took 3 days of basically non-stop downloading to get the 4 pilots that I downloaded. Does anyone know about how fast things download for them in Unbox and such? Can someone think of a way I can find out what is going on and if there is anything I can do to improve this? I don't know enough about network monitoring to know what to do (I'd use WireShark but I know that is the wrong tool). The base causing this question is when I first got my S3 (shortly after they were released) I had a ton of trouble getting it to use my home network (wired Ethernet). That problem went away after a while (I don't get messages about it, things seem to work). I believe a software updated fixed it, but I always have this little nagging worry about it and the slow download speed on video makes me wonder if it is having problems. I don't expect 500KBps, but most sites seem to give at least 50KBps. For Unbox, does anyone know if TiVo connects to the normal servers (like a PC would) or if it goes to a special TiVo server? In other words if I downloaded a show on my PC would that speed be comparable to what I should get on my TiVo (something I haven't tried)?
