    I'm not sure if this is a series 3/tivohd issue only nor not..

    I've found that when I try to record a show from the guide when it is close to the time it's going to be on I can't. For example...

    Say it's 9:28, I'm in the guide & I want to record a show at 9:30, when I press select, it changes to that channel, but, if I try to record it wants to record what is currently showing, not the one that's on at 9:30. Anyone else notice this?

    What happens if you press the record button instead of the select button?

    Part of the problem is TV shows don't always end or start exactly on time.

    Grey's Anatomy many times runs over till 9:01 with ER starting at 9:01 a well.

    When a show runs over by a minute & the NEXT program to record is on a DIFFERENT channel, issues can happen.

    Also, I've noticed that the guide flips the shows up about 5 minutes before the hour - shows that start at, say, 2:00PM will pop up on the left side of the TiVo Live Guide at around 1:55PM. Selecting the show from the left side will switch to the channel. Selecting from the right side will fire up the record menu.
