Media Center Updates

Hi All,
Just wanted to see if this is happening to you also.
Seems that everyday my Media Center is updating which takes about 20-30 minutes. I have checked and it seems to be updating information ok.

I do have it set to update when necessary between 7AM and 1 PM for 6 hour window it asks for.

So does it happen to you or do I have something not properly marked?
Thanks

I was noticing what seemed like a lot of network traffic yesterday, and when I checked, it was WMC getting an update.

It did take quite a while, and seemed to use as much of my cable modem bandwidth as it could consume.

So does this happen daily for you or once a week?
Do you have it setup to donload updates within a window of time in the setup?

Mine updates everyday, sometimes longer than other times and weekly it seems to take a few hours, That's what I've noticed on mine anyway.
