Why? Your statement below does not disagree with anything I've said. You seem to believe that I'm saying that a Premiere Tivo should behave the way it does. I am not. What I'm saying is that there is a problem and you can easily avoid it. If you know this can happen and you continue to lose live tv to recordings, it's your own fault for not recording what you were watching. TiVo, TV your way does not mean that a Tivo is required to do what you want, it has only ever meant within the scope of what a Tivo does. If your Premiere loses live tv for a recording, TV your way is not an option. So again, why do you disagree with methods to get around this problem? It's a dvr, if you want to watch something, record it.
