    If they add that I also want auto-pad where every show is automatically padded by 1 minute on either side as long as it does not cause a conflict.

    I'm glad i rarely need to pad any of my SPs. Most of the shows I watch are correct in the guide so they get the one or two minutes past the hour recorded without any padding. I think I only have padding on 5% to 8% of my SPs.

    I pad everything just to be safe. A lot of shows I don't watch until way after they aired so I don't even realize they got cut off until it's too late to actually rerecord. With 4 tuners I only ever had conflicts on Thursday nights. Now with 6 I should be able to pad everything without any conflicts at all.

    I'm having a bunch of conflicts now that the new Tv season is starting up. I had to reorganize my SPs again to compensate.I'm already using six tuners concurrently several times a week. By the time the new Tv season is in full swing I will be using six tuners concurrently almost every day.

    I can't imagine that. There are only 4 major networks, 5 if you count The CW, and everything on cable repeats ad nauseum. If you don't pad anything then you should never need more then 5 tuners.

    I have alot of news programs in my 120 Season Passes now. Plus I have the New Shows SP that I added. For instance I recently set up an SP for news on each of the four major channels here. These are not repeated. But I gave these a low priority. This is in addition to CNN and Al jazeera news programs. Plus I also have several SPs for some old shows that have 50 to 100 episodes so those are constantly being recorded as well. And I added all the night football games each week plus the Redskins games too.

    My main concern is that I don't have conflicts for the five broadcast networks since I watch shows from all five..

    I had six tuners recording this evening. I see six in use tomorrow night too. It seems like Tuesday is my worst day right now but I'm not sure what will happen when the new season is in full swing.

    Checking the To Do List I now see only four conflicts listed as coming up and they are next week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Doomsday Castle on NGCHD, two for Duck Dynasty on AETVHD, and Kitchen Nightmares on BBCAHD.
