I have concluded that the weakness is the HPNA networking, which, I believe, is a 10Mbps network (not surprising, since 10-base-T networks used coax and were 10Mbps). If the network is carrying both HDTV from the DVR and Internet packets from the Ethernet-connected device, it just can't keep up.
A properly working HPNA implementation on the U-Verse system has a shared bandwidth amongst all connected devices of 112 Mbps, not 10 Mbps.
