    Is this a feature or a bug? I like the idea of suggestions but even with 6 tuners I have had to cancel shows more than once to watch live shows on the mini (and I have had it less than a week). I guess I will have to just shut off suggestions which seems silly.

    The idea of dedicating a tuner was a stupid work around. There's no reason it should be an option. Not only is it confusing, but allowing the host TiVo to use all four tuners, which, unless you're an extreme TV watcher with a big family, happens very rarely anyways.

    With three roommates, an XL4, and quite a bit of stuff recording between the all of us, we rarely have all 4 tuners running. Maybe an average of half an hour to an hour a week. This week and next week it will obviously be way higher than that.

    What's stupid about the Mini is that it can't cycle through the live tuners like the XL4 can. It's often a lot easier to find a basketball game that way, since I already set it to record.
