-- How slow should a wireless transfer be? (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=181314)

Eureka! Or, more appropriately, aww crap!

In either case, that was exactly it. The "slow-receiving-but-fast-sending" TiVo is in the same room as a 2.4GHz phone base. I guess it's being bombarded by the phone's continuous transmissions? I unplugged the phone and the transfer speed improved dramatically.

Is there anything I can do to reduce this interference? Like put the network on a different channel or something?

Unplugging the phone each time I want to use MRV will be a pain (have to reset the date/time after), but still much easier than switching the TiVos between the home network and p2p. At least until I can run some cat5.

One thing I don't get, though, is why the p2p network would be less affected by the phone interference. Unless perhaps the interference is still a factor, but the shorter distance (just between the TiVos, instead of going through the router) makes up for it. I'll have to try p2p with the phone unplugged and see if I get blazing speeds.

Thanks for your help, and please let me know if you know of a way to lessen the interference.

michang5, thanks for reporting your results. It gives me hope!
