Bloody nora... this machine is a life saver.

I'm sitting there last night at 8:30pm watching live tv (recording some bollocks on another channel)  when Tomb Raider starts.  So I sat there watching it for about 30mins when darling wife walks in and asks me if I'm recording it for her to watch....  which I wasn't.

So click click, blip blip... record this program.... what did TiVo do??

It had been silently recording it as I watched anyway because one tuner was free and not recording!!!

Amazing.  So didn't miss a thing.

Thanks TiVo.

I love you TiVo.

It's always recording... if you had accidentally changed channel though you would have lost the last 30 minutes (or however much it buffers for).

It has to continually record to disk so you can rewind/pause/fast forward.

I agree, I really like it. Great tool for the whole family. I don't watch a lot of telly but when I want to watch what I want and not what happens to be on. e.g I recorded "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan" on Saturday and am slowing working through watching it.

Your wife must be pretty scary if not recording Tomb Raider meant the end of your life. Surprised

Yep. She's scary. South African. You just don't mess with them.

Hope she doesn't catch me and TiVo together... (think scene from American Pie)

Just be wary of no spillages on the unshielded power supply. :)

not quite correct I believe
I don't have one yet so not 100% - but this is what I heard:

It actually is always buffering the channel you are watching AND the channel you were last watching. (if you flick between tuners).
