Advertisements There again with the dual buffers! Am I the only one that thinks the dual buffers are woefully overrated? The vast majority of the times that I'm watching something, I've already got something recording on one tuner which makes the dual buffers useless. Unless, I guess, I'm recording many more shows than the typical user, which I seriously doubt. I think this is another one of those red herrings - it isn't as a big a deal as many people make it out to be!
