I've encountered what I consider to be a big problem lately. I've tried searching the forums to see if there is any info, but I see conflicting information about whether other people are having the same problem or not.
The problem succinctly:
I'm in the middle of watching a show in the buffer that has finished (in live TV time) and I press Record. Prior to 1-2 months ago, I would get the next show (next in the buffer, current by live TV time) with at least part of the finished show appended at the beginning dependent upon buffer capacity. Now, when I press record it dumps the buffer from before the start of the next show (current in live TV) and I lose what I was watching because ONLY the next show gets recorded.
With more details:
Previously (maybe more than 1-2 months ago), if I was watching something in the buffer that had ended (in live TV), I could press record and get everything in the buffer. In fact, regardless of whether I was watching the live show or the finished show before, I used to get everything in the buffer. I know that some people (myself included) didn't like the fact that the Tivo would record extra before the live show, but that was better than what my box has started doing lately. Now, no matter what I do, I can't record anything from the buffer that has ended. If I'm watching channel 99, show A, but I'm not caught up and show B starts, there is no way for me to get show A even though it's in the buffer. When I press record, show A gets dumped (regardless of where I am in the buffer) and only show B gets recorded. I can also only go back in the buffer as far as the start of show B.
I've tried pressing Rec when I'm on the prior show, and I've tried pressing Info and then Select to record/explore the prior show and neither work. Funny thing is that when I press Info it shows the correct prior show program info, but then when I select record/explore show the popup dialog is asking about the next (live TV) show.
Is anybody else experiencing this INCREDIBLY frustrating behavior? Anybody know how to work around it?

Please forgive me if this has been discussed somewhere already, but I found conflicting information in recent threads:
