    I have the Tivo branded wi-fi adapter - extremely good signal strength - but it seems to me that it takes too long to transfer a file to the computer. Something like 20-25 minutes to copy a 30 minute program... Does that sound right?

    Longer for me, at least with Linksys adapters -- probably closer to 30 minutes to transfer a 30-minute show at medium quality; 40 minutes when transferring between my two Series2's. Fiddling with the 802.11 channel on my router seems to help some, so it's probably just a crummy Wi-Fi environment here (my signal strength is usually around 50%). I have to plan ahead when transferring TiVo-to-TiVo.

    I do have the Tivo-branded adapter, but it's currently attached to a TiVo HD, which doesn't currently allow transfers, so I can't really compare it easily.

    15 minutes for a 30 minute show recorded at best quality for me
