how about reducing the life of hard drive and TiVo unit?
I don't see a point in buffering live tv 24/7/365 even when the unit isn't sending a video signal.
so people can wakeup and just happen to get lucky and have a show buffered they are going to watch? Silly.
When a unit goes into standby mode the live buffering should stop.
No video showing = No video buffering needed
At least give us the option in the settings:
'Live buffering in standby mode - Off or ON'
