How About Latency?

The big problem with network DVRs is latency. When changing a channel takes a second or more, what's the lag going to be when you hit pause? Any real world experience reports?

very little if any due to it being on the local network. it's not like it's connecting to the internet and going across the country.

I'm sure this will be identical to Cablevisions "On Demand" service and yes theres a slight lag using that compared to a set top DVR. Also fast forwarding a "On Demand" show is problematic (jittery and hard to control) compared to a set top DVR's fast forward and reverse.
Personally I prefer the performance of the set top over a remote storage option.

Slight lag?!? If that's all you are getting you are lucky. 95% of the time I get "Could not load, please try again later". during peak time.
