I do this with more and more shows now. I tend to park them until I feel like watching them or giving them a try.
This. Especially for shows that look marginal or seem destined for cancellation, record it, just in case. Then if it survives, no harm done, and it can be watched from the beginning. Networks are so quick to cancel shows nowadays.
Also, with 6 tuners, the 4+TB units could be useful for larger families and unconventional households. How they sort through that list or resolve tuner conflict is another matter entirely.
