Re: Be able to change channel and not lose saved portion

Now that my daughter has figured out that if she changes the channel with the remote and daddy happens to be behind on the program he is watching, that he loses all of the program, including parts he hasn't watched yet, and that makes him really mad. It would be nice not to have to record every show I pause during just to make sure the channel button isn't pushed and I lose everything.
Agreed! One of the most frustrating things about Tivo for me is watching live TV "behind" and hitting the channel button accidentally, losing the buffer. Last time, I was watching an excellent show, just before the granf finale, the commercial break started. Out of habit, I hit the channelk change button to check out what else was on during the break, (BIG mistake)..
In this respect, Tivo damages the live TV experience, in that it can cause you to LOSE programming..
Still, to lessen confusion, I'd suggest showing different buffered channels in different colors on the progress bar. Also, show the channel number in the cursor aor nearby, when scrolling back.
Additionally, increase the buffer time if space is available.
