Another data point: on my DCT-6200 using firewire, it takes 7 seconds
to change channels (longer if changing to HD channel). Actually
changing the channel (using 6200ch) only takes 1-2 seconds so I'm not
sure what it's doing the rest of the time. Starting Live TV takes
about the same time. Way too long in my opinion. I don't watch Live
myself but my wife does.
