Same deal in my house.  Turns out we almost never use it for live tv.  And even
when we do sorta watch live tv we record it and then watch the recording.  And
our delay is only a couple of seconds using the PVR250 and analog cable.  It's
wierd how my expected usage patterns and actual usage patterns have differed,
this being a key difference.
