The smart TV's I have seen in people's homes are EXTREMELY slow! And we are talking top of the line Samsung and Panasonic.

Why would you want to record a streaming show? The whole idea of streaming is that you don't need to record, but rather access when you are ready to watch. Pause, stop and resume all at your leisure.

It may be your hard drive, assuming you set the 350 GB HDD as the recording drive, which will also make it the live TV buffer.

Swap for a different drive, see if it makes a difference.

DCA feeds off WEI. If you have not run WEI after the change, it wouldn't have been updated, which would feed wrong information to DCA. It must have re-run WEI in the meantime.
