There's really 2 questions here. Should tivo record off of teleworld instead of via modem, and did tivo try to change to teleworld, even though he was watching TV.
it's not that he left for less than 30 minutes, but that nothing on the remote was pressed for 30 minutes. Tivo doesn't ACTUALLY know you're there or not there, it only knows based on remote presses. So, if you start watching something live, and don't hit the remote, that is part of the time TIVO starts to count from. Since i think the coverage has no commercials except for the half, it's probably likely he didn't hit the remote while he was watching, so Tivo's count starts from when the last remote was pressed, not when he physically leaves.
I'm sure if you took a poll, most people would tell you to download the guides via some channel early in the morning, rather than via the modem.
A 1 in 1000 thing can happen like this, because overall it's for the greater good.
And tom, you realize there are no best buy, sheryl crow, or fung shui on your box unless you specifically decide to go look at them. For all anybody knows, there is a line with a star. Don't hit select on that line, there are no ads.
