Is that something I'm not going to be able to do with the D* DVR?
I think some people are talking about watching 4-5 games at the same time on Sunday. While they can only watch two at a time, each time they chanege to a new game on a tuner, they want that game buffered automatically.
Watch game A on tuner 1, and also buffering game B on tuner 2.
Change from game A to game C on tuner 1, still buffering game B on tuner 2.
Switch to tuner 2 to watch game B starting back in the buffer, still buffering C on tuner 1.
Change from game B to game D, still buffering game C on tuner 1.
Switch to tuner 1 to watch game C back in the buffer, still buffering D on tuner 2.
Change from game C back to A, start buffering A again, still buffering D on tuner 2.
One can still record each game each time you switch to it (start new buffer), but it's quite an PITA.
