Back ground downloading is faster ONLY if you do Nothing that uses online. 

(no gaming, no BD live, No streaming videos of the BBC sport app) 

If you use online It will stop all background downloading.

 

10mins before you go to bed set up the downloads and set the power saving option 2 to 1 Hour. The PS3 will then download every thing while you snore away.

 

That was the plan then....

when you wake you find out your ISP cut you off to do work on the network last night so nothing has downloaded...

Then try again next night and it all downloads...

 

(8.3GB RDR downloaded in under 2 hours.. VM 30Mb/s uncongested location broadband and under useds pipes from third party internet companies that connect my location to.... PSN = )

Black screen on PC remote play showing up as windows GPU driver miss match, visit Intell, AMD, Nvidia to change your driver, downgrade of GPU driver may be required.
