I've only used one (cable company-provided) DVR before using the DVR+, but it thought that was just the way it was - once you changed a channel, the buffer was cleared. But you're right, if 2 tuners are available, why not buffer the current channel and the previous one?
Another DVR+ "feature omission", similar to the above but even more annoying to me, is that if I am watching a broadcast, then play a recorded show and then press stop, I am returned to the broadcast show, but the buffer is gone!
And, just my luck - as soon as I am returned to the broadcast (say, a talk show, for example), the audience is always roaring with laughter and host is saying something like "wow, that was a really funny story!", and there I am with no way of rewinding to see what I just missed! Gee, thanks!
How many times has that happened to you?
