    If you have suggestions enabled, this will happen occasionally.

    or if you record 2 abutting shows, with padding on one/both ends to cause both tuners to record the same channel.

    It is silly it can't do that without using both tuners. During the overlap, one tuner's output could go to both recordings.

    Not silly at all. It's undoubtedly a major code rewrite with all kinds of performance implications. All of a sudden you are requiring 3 streams to be written out to the disk from the tuners at the same time.

    I managed to have a manual season pass recording (PTI, M-F 4:30) record on both tuners on the same channel at the same time yesterday (even though there was not duplicate requests for the recording). First time I'd seen it and I was afraid my Tivo blew up.
