Annoying delay watching comcast dvr  

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the Comcast dual channel DVR. In a neighboring room, I have a standard non-DVR cable box. When both sets are on at the same time, there is a brief time lag on the DVR box. I presume its because I'm actually watching recorded material, rather than live. It's very annoying, because it's like an echo. You first hear the sound from the neighboring room and then a moment later fromt he DVR box set.

Is there a way to get the DVR box to display/play just live output whether or not it is recording at the same time?

Thanks.

MSK

I've noticed the same thing with our Comcast DVR. It was a similar (though worse) situation when we had a ReplayTV. There was no such delay with an SA8000 through Time Warner.

Interestingly, this box was a recent replacement for another one. When we first got it, I noticed that there was no delay. I was actually quite surprised by that since it was different than the previous box. However, now the delay is there. I'm wondering if the delays only happen if there is material recorded on the DVR.
