This is probably in your cable box. I have this option in mine, called "Power On" Channel, where you can select any channel in the lineup or "last chan" which keeps it on whatever channel you were on when you turned it off. I would be happy to see in Tivo - the problem is, the Tivo, being "always on," doesn't really know when you've turned on the TV, and you can't really turn the Tivo on or off.
The alternative is to have Tivo just tune to your favorite channel whenever it's not recording something. But then that's no guarantee that it will be on that channel at any given point during the day, especially if you have suggestions turned on.
The S3 could really shine here actually - They could have a settings for "only record one suggestion at a time", and you could have one tuner always tune to your favorite channel while the other one is recording suggestions.
Hopefully Tivo will continue to innovate with little features like this.
