Also, I see how a lot of shows are airing until 10:01PM. Someone told me that this was to stop people from DVRing a show on another network that starts at 10. Can't you set a DVR to stop recording a show at 10PM? Or do you HAVE to record the whole show? That seems lame if it is the case... my VCR has that capability! For instance, can I record the first 30 minutes of Leno, the first 30 minutes of Kimmel, and the first 30 minutes of Conan?
50 season passes and wishlists (are all on the same list). We have 60+ on each of our tivos
Dual buffering. If you start watching two 1pm nfl games sunday, you can pause the one then switch to the other.....then pause that one, and unpause the original, and go back to watching that.
I'm sure the tuners will be active soon but out of the box is kinda stupid. You can only ever record 2 things at once, regardless of OTA or satellite, then watch a 3rd.
You can do manual recording of anything. Negative padding isn't permitted with HDtivo, not sure about the new box. If you want to stop something at 10, you need to set a manual. Or if you watch back to back stuff on that channel, it's not a biggie.
