Re: Wireless performance
Because wireless sucks and the "11Mbps" it's rated for is a pipe dream.

Here's what I know. I've got two friends with tivos connected via wet11s and they each get less than 500kb/s doing extraction with tytool v6.
I've confirmed this on my network. My tivo is hardwired via a turbonet card and I'm getting around 1.5Mb/s to my wired computers, under 500kp/s to my laptop via wireless. Confirmed same/worse performance with mfsstream.
So what's the deal? Has anyone actually put a packet sniffer on the job yet?
Note: Now that tytool6 multiplexes output, I can watch shows directly off the tivo onto my wired machines using VideoLan to open the files as soon as they start extracting. It would be nice to enjoy some television on my porch using my laptop, but perfomance is not fast enough.
Also, a 'View' button in tytool that piped the output straight to Videolan would be awfully cool!!!!
