That's funny that is just what my 4 year old replay has to do and it's guide data runs at a acceptable speed...

The replay isn't recording two things simultaneously.

The replay isn't receiving a proprietary and encrypted stream on even one, let alone both tuners that needs decrypting.

The replay isn't constantly processing new incoming guide data, only scheduled packaged downloads.

But most importantly, Replay was able to format all of their data exactly how they chose to.. The Tivo has to work with the same guide data format DirecTV has been sending down since 1994 and integrate that with their database information on each show.

If you think the ReplayTV and DirecTivo boxes are doing the exact same thing, then you really don't understand what a DirecTivo box does, let alone why it is different from an SA box or a ReplayTV box.
