    Me too. I've am pretty much doing that with everything since receiving my Roamio Pro. I don't anticipate having any conflicts, but it's only 2 of us who watch on it.

    Anyone know if this setting also auto-pads suggestions? Nothing is more irritating than occasionally finding an interesting suggestion recorded then discovering that the last 30 seconds are missing :).

    It sounds like the spring update delivered what people have been asking for.

    Can anyone confirm that auto-padding is now an option? Does it work for all recordings, or only season passes? Sometimes I just click "Record" when I'm in the Guide and would appreciate an auto-pad for these instances. I'm looking thru shows in the Guide and clicking Record, Record, Record as I find shows. It's a pain having to go into options everytime to pad the beginning and end of each selection.

    Sounds like the spring update also fixed the back-to-back tuner problem that people were complaining about. Anyone else get this impression as well?

    Read the other thread. Your defaults DO apply to one off recordings.

    AFAIK, it does not apply to suggestions.

    I have no such option. My menu looks like this..

    Settings>
    Recording>
    Overlap Protection, Extend Live Recordings, Tivo Suggestions



    "Extend Live Recording" is just a Yes/No option to remind me to add extra time.

    You have to wait until you're upgraded to the newest software.

    If you enter your TiVo service number on this page....

    You should get it in a couple of days.

    Any updates on the latest situation with padding? If all 6 of my tuners are finally now working (thanks for the FCC lighting a fire under Comcast), should I just pad everything by 1 minute? Are there still glitches?

    They turned off the overlap thing so that conflicting recordings use two different tuners. They were having too many problems with it.
