I have a Premier XL, and getting a consistent rate of 20 - 25 mins transfer time for a Standard definition (1.3 GBytes size for a 1 hour show). I have not tried a HD Xfer, yet. I do know that the speed is about double vs a Series 2 box.I'm transferring a 3 hour HD show from my THD to my desktop using the TTG software and it's taking forever. It's only getting like 10mb throughput on the network...this is a 22gb file.
I understand there is some transcoding being done on the fly and all that - do the newer Tivos handle that processing any better and does that translate into faster transfer speeds from Tivo to desktop?
