    What do you mean by "resolve each other?" Tivo's don't resolve each other -- it's a purely layer 2/broadcast communication (MRV, that is).

    I have a simple home network, the router is at 192.168.1.1 (the DNS server is out at SBC and can't be edited), the DTivos are at 192.168.1.150 and 192.168.1.151. I still get the lag and the Tivos can't see my Tivo desktop. The are all wired to the router on Ethernet. This one is driving me nuts! Funny thing is sometimes it works fine other times it can't find anything.

    Can't help you with Tivo Desktop (I don't use it) but the lag means either (A) the DTivos cannot get to the SBC DNS server or (B) they're not trying to. If (A), then it could be a mismatched subnet mask, or it could be a goofy setting on the router, or an incorrectly-set default gateway, or...well, lots of things.

    If it's (B), then the wrong DNS is set and should be double-checked.

    Can you ping each of the DTivos from your PC? What kind of response time do you see? Try sending 100 pings at each one.
