As a Tivo user for a few years, when the HR20 came out I was disappointed to learn that dual live buffers (DLBs) did not exist on it. However, I still leased an HR20 and to this day I really do hope that DLBs are enabled some day. When I first started using the HR20, and I realized that the single live buffer was 90 minutes in length, I was pleasantly surprised. The first question that came to mind was... if they enable DLBs, will the length of the buffer have to drop. Since the live buffer is actually being recorded to disk, if two 90-minute live buffers were enabled, that's a significant chunk of extra disk space that would be unavailable for recordings. On my HDVR2 and HR10s, the DLBs were 30 minutes each. I always thought it would be nice to have at least 60 minutes on those, but it didn't concern me that much. So what would be your ideal implementation of DLBs? I'm including a poll in this to see what you all think. Options: - Two 30-minute buffers is enough for me. - Two 45-minute buffers is good enough and won't use more recording space. - Two 90-minute buffers. I don't want to give up the 90 minutes I'm used to. - Two 120-minute buffers! Who cares about recording space? - I do not want DLBs enabled on my HR20. - Other (explain in a reply to this thread) My vote is: Two 90-minute buffers. I don't want to give up the 90 minutes I'm used to. I've become accustomed to the 90 minutes and would prefer not to have to see them shortened. However, I would prefer to lose some buffer length to get DLBs. I look to reading your responses. And, I admit, there's somewhat of a dual agenda here... basically, since we know that D* is reading these forums... this may be helpful to them in making a decision on DLBs if they're ever implemented. Bob P.S. Please... let's not turn this into any type of anti-DLB vs. pro-DLB debate. That's not the intention.
