    how many processes?

    Just how many processes are typically running on a 6.2 DirecTivo HDVR2? Here's a list of what's running on mine.

    I'm somewhat suprised to see multiples of the caller ID program. Are the others typical? I only ask this as the unit seems to exhibt some odd slow-downs like the Now Playing List coming up empty for a minute or so, or not showing the other DVR that's setup for MRV for about 2 minutes. They're on the same switch and it's not showing excessive traffic or errors.

    That looks fairly typical to me. Every running tivosh script results in three processes under 6.x and above (e.g. tivowebplus and tivocid in your ps list). That's normal and is due to threading.

    Sounds typical of a misconfigured DNS server. The NowPlaying list stalls until a dns server request times out. This is well covered; if you search around you should be able to find the appropriate threads.
