I think it's because the Tivo is going to need to start the one recording before the other one has finished.
I'm not really sure that's the case. Tivo has no problem switching channels when two shows are being recorded, then two other shows need to be recorded right after the first two end. It's not an issue of when the shows end.jeffster said:I think it's because the Tivo is going to need to start the one recording before the other one has finished.
Hmm. Don't really have that many others. I'm very pleased with the unit. Haven't experienced any of the 9.1 bugs others have had. I'll be glad to see eSATA, and TivoToGo support.vstone said:What are your other pet peeves?
Technically, there may be an overlap of one second. The first program (in the guide) ends at 9:00:00 and the second program begins at 9:00:00. If the first program ended (in the guide) at 8:59:59, there probably wouldn't be a problem. I know this is silly, but maybe the software isn't smart enough to record the first program from 8:00:00 to 8:59:59 and the second one from 9:00:00 to 9:59:59. The software detects an overlap and therefore uses the other tuner to record the second program.PopcornGuy said:I agree. If there is one program from 8:00-9:00 and another from 9:00-10:00 (no overlap) then all the recording should go through one tuner by default.
No matter how long the innactivity, TiVo should still prompt that it wants to change channels, so that shouldn't be you're problem.bdraw said:This bothers me as well. The other thing I've noticed lately is I'll be watching a football game (my only live programming) and the channel will change to record without warning. In the past I figured I miss the warning, but Popcornguy's comment makes sense, maybe I haven't hit any buttons in the past 10-15 minutes.
