That would be a useful feature if multiple Tivo's could act like a mesh and schedule recordings on whichever Tivo had an available tuner. Although in theory I'd like Tivos to have more tuners, I'm not sure it's worth the extra cost those tuners would add. For most people, 4 tuners are sufficient. Adding more tuners would add to the price, which may mean fewer people buying Tivos. Are all the people slamming OTA subchannel content younger than 40? I have several season passes for classic shows from the 80's like Miami Vice, Columbo, Wonder Woman (think you Tivo for slow mo ) and others.
