Okay, I know some Dish people read these forums, so I'm giving away my $1mil ideas for free in the hopes that somebody listens. 1) Add PBS to the mix. Since you've already proven you can record 4 channels at once, why not add PBS? Or for people with CW/MyNetwork in their area, those channels as well? I understand it would take more hard drive space, so it should be a user-selectable option - something like "Add channel x to PTAT" in a settings menu. But it seems a shame to tie up a second tuner to record PBS shows. 2) Allow user scheduled PTAT slots - some people may want the local news from more than one station, or want to record 3 sports events on a Sunday afternoon, or want all the Sunday morning news programs. Instead of tying up tuners for each of those, allow a custom scheduled event to "Record all 4 Networks" off one tuner, leaving two others free for other things. Yes, this uses up hard drive space, but if the user chooses to use it for this, why not?
