Since you don't have a high speed connection you'll have to reduce Netflix's quality. As to DVR, I don't see any offering today that will download and view later.
How about the new Amazon Prime box? It does let us download and view later.
I only have 1Mbit DSL, and streaming services (mostly Amazon Prime, HBO GO and Netflix) are always stalling and pausing. Is there a way to use a DVR to record seamlessly? I assume the streaming device and DVR have to be integrated, or else I will just be recording the "buffering" icon and the pauses.
