If I have a wirelss usb nic card in the tivo, going to the router, and then the router wired ethernet to my pc/xbox, will this be fast enough to stream tivo files? I download like 500k/s from MFSFTP


Arrrg from
PC --> XBOX (wired) (5,657.86 KBps
TiVO --> PC only like 500k

Any ideas? Ways to improve wireless speed

802.11G is fast enough for me, especially when i use medium quality

802.11B is pushing the envelope though, you might consider upgrading your setup.

So, what USB wireless cards work w/ the Tivo? is there a list somewhere? I cant seem to find it....

I think part of my problem might be streaming in best quality =] hehe I will mess around w/ lower quality and see...

i can do shows i want to stream in basic maybe and shows i want to burn to dvd in best :)

I just did a little testing..

Basic plays fine and Medium plays decent so I think I will be good with my current setup because the main shows i want to stream quality isnt THAT important
