Why is DVR picture quality so fuzzy? - DirecTV

It seems backwards to me that the streaming and on-demand picture quality on the iPhone app and the iPad app is great, but the DVR quality is so poor. Why is that? Would it help if the Genie box was connected via Ethernet instead of wifi? I cannot imagine why that would make a difference, but it also seems odd,that shows I recorded and that are downloaded onto my Genie box (right?) would look so fuzzy and have pauses and ticks for playback on a mobile device -- Even in home when connected to the receiver.

What gives?
