45 minutes would be ideal for me, it would catch 99% of the overruns, unfortunatly Tivo doesn't have a 45 minute extension(at least my HD) so I have to pad it 1hr, which covers 99.5% of any overruns....

I agree, like VCD it makes no sense to put HD on a DVD(or SD on a CD) especially financial sense as cost per GB is cheapest with a BD and second cheapest DVD. It does make sense to go the other way,...

There might be, but I'm not personally aware of one. A DVDR can contain a HDD or not but must always contain a DVD burner to be called a DVDR. Tivo even made a few DVDRs, sourced by Pioneer but I've...

I agree with you, if OTA entering 5 should take you to 5.1, especially on a device without a analog tuner. That said I basically never direct enter a channel, I almost always bring up the grid and...

I'm not aware of any firmware update that effects channel reception, again the EZ-27 is older tuner technology('07) so it's possible it might not be as good as something newer. I'd try futzing with...
