    My transfers to my PC from my Premiere are painfully slow. It's taking over 4 hours to transfer a 1 hour HD program. Is this normal?

    I have wireless G adapters on both Tivos transferring to a wireless laptop.

    I have no issues transferring Premiere to Premiere or transferring using pyTivo. Those transfers are super fast.

    Possibly some interference on the wireless channel, what channel are you using? You could try on channel 1, 6, or 11.

    Depending on the size of the file, yes that is quite normal for Tivo on a wireless G connection. Should be better but its not. Tivo seems to use quite a lot more overhead dealing with network 'issues' for wireless connections. Really slows the transfers down. On a wired connection with low error rates, the Premiere is just as fast as any computer on my network other than the NAS.
