??? How does the TiVo *KNOW* you are watching "live" TV? It doesn't. It doesn't have eyes to watch you sitting there. That is why it will ASK you if it is OK to switch to a different channel. Just answer "no".
Now, could they add a nice option that would set something like "Record suggestions only if 2 idle tuners?" Sure, I am in favor of that OPTION. But it really is no big deal. It is only ever going to try and record something on the half or whole hour anyway, which is either zero or 1 interruption... MAX. Since you are watching "live" TV, you are probably being interrupted by annoying commercials every 10 minutes anyway, right?
But I can't even remember the last time I watched "live" TV....
