Does the VCR timer cause the channel to change? If so, then what happens if TiVo is trying to record a 4 hour long show and the timer occurs in the middle of it? Will that timer change the channel without TiVo realizing it? Similarly, what does the 322's restart after an update do if it occurs in the middle of a 4 hour TiVo recording? Would TiVo just lose the signal for 30 seconds or so while the 322 reboots? Thanks, -Bill Kirke I'm considering DISH, and glad I found this thread before I have equipment installed!
