    Out of curiosity, why can't I autotune on my HR24 like I can on my H24?

    I am told that the logic is that since you have a DVR you are going to Record instead of watch.
    I too would like to Autotune.

    I think autotune would be a nice addition. Or a simple reminder notification. Either or.

    I saw your post there. Not sure I want to get up to set an auto tune. Neat idea though.

    Yeah I don't see how autotune and recording is mutually exclusive.

    I wrote to them and asked why couldn't that be a choice on the menu when you clicked on Info, More Info ? They said that once people got used to recording that it was not that big of a deal.
    I have got to where I look at the guide and see when, say the NASCAR Sprint Cup is coming on and press the record button. If I forget and I am watching something else I notice that the orange light comes on and I check the list to see what it is recording, then change channels.

    If all you want is a reminder, just set that up in your smart phone. When it goes off, change channel.

    I could do that but the way I look at it is if I can do it on a H24 why not its big brother the HR24 ya know?

    Count me in for missing autotune too, primarily for NASCAR programs too. I really don't care that much for watching pre-race shows, qualifying, practice, etc, and it's nuts that I have to record and delete that stuff every week, just on the off chance I might be interested that week.

    I would set an autotune for them as I did in the pre-DVR days just to have them come on in the background just in case I might be interested on a given week though.

    There are certain features that are available on non DVRs, auto tune is one of them. I'd like to see them added as well, though auto tune for me is fairly low.

    I understand, but just offering a suggestion.

    I upgraded to an HR34 and it won't hold the buffer when you turn it off and then back on the next day. All the other models of DVR's will buffer, so to me that's definitely odd. So I just leave the HR34 power on all the time and then it buffers. Sometimes you have to find a work around.

    I totally understand. I took it as a suggestion. If that's what I have to do then so be it. Its a viable work around. :)

    This is something I'd like as well. I don't need to record morning sports radio talk shows, but I like to tune into them every morning. Works great for my receiver, just wish it'd be available on the DVRs as well. Seems like a pretty simple feature to me.

    There are still may of us that would like Auto-Tune on the DVRs. I don't see it happening though.

    Can't bring back what was never there.

    Why add yet another feature that will slow the unit down more when you can just set a recording??

    I would also like autotune on my DVR. I have work-a-rounds, but they are annoying.
