Automatic buffer recording
Did someone think of this already?
What bothers me is that while I have all this free disk space and my Tivo sat idle, I missed part of my program like the Friends or the ER incident. If I am to record from 7-8pm and Tivo knows that primetime is the most important and the most volatile time period, why not do this:
Between 6-midnight, if you have the space and no conflicts, Tivo will automatically record and save the buffer. So in my example, you'll get buffer B1 which is 6-7pm on Channel 2, ER 7-8pm on Channel 2, B2 from 8-9pm on Channel 2, B3 from 9pm-930pm on Channel 2, B4 from 930-10pm on Channel 5, the News from 10-1030pm on Channel 5, B5 from 1030-1130pm on Channel 5, and B6 from 1130-midnight on Channel 5. B1-B6 goes in the buffer folder and it's only space available, lowest priority. This is auto buffering and either it is either fully automatic or you can designate which SPs get it. Did someone already suggest this? What do you think?
