I assumed it was a DLST vs ST issue but it doesn't seem it should take a complete cycle of the 12 hour clock for the DLST to "lock-on". It's amazing that DLST should be such a large "stumbling block" for the TiVo crew. Today later than 8:00 AM it seems fine and that's why I mentioned a "complete cycle" of the 12 hour clock.
Recording "live TV" for later viewing is what brought the product to market and it's why I bought into the product. Streaming and all of the Internet options certainly satisfy the "we want more" crowd but if it can't accomplish the "basics reliably" maybe the P-XL and the P-4XL are my last.
I had considered an upgrade but maybe I'll just "stand pat" for a while.
If they had the issue "last year" and couldn't get past it in 12 months I guess we should expect the same next year and likely maybe the year after?
Granted mine was a coincidental issue created by CBS programing but then again the TiVo couldn't do what was needed to get past it.
Maybe the "Fall" roll-out to the "masses" is a month or so late! Perhaps!
