Hopefully this makes sense.
if you previously had 2 shows recording on the same channel WITH PADDING, your tuners will end up on the same channel, and still be buffering live TV.
e.g. channel 3 from 8-8:31 and channel 3 from 8:29-9:01 to deal with shows that overlap..
Then two tuners will be on channel 3.
You can get the tuners to different channels by switching to that tuner and typing in another channel #. It can also be helpful to PAUSE a specific tuner so that you know for sure which one you're on..
But if you up/down channel change to a channel that's already being buffered, it will SWITCH TUNERS. I can see why they do this, but it is semi-annoying for more geeky people.
