good point. i tested this today. it's about 1-2 minutes for full guide data,
etc on the dct700 with comcast in chicago. i have my myth box start up about
4 minutes prior to a recording to get any houskeeping/scheduling tasks
complete prior to the start of the recording; it's been more stable this way.
