Yeah, but it doesn't necessarily show it on the TV when it starts recording... That's what I want to happen.

The problem there is with a DVR you have multiple tuners and I'm pretty sure the DVR has no way to select which tuner is being output to your TV, thus no autotune on a DVR. With a non-DVR there's only one tuner and it's obviously the one being output so autotune is possible.

My 11 year old ago dvr was the first dual tuner one. Even before TiVo and it did autotune just fine. When I don't want to record but do want to watch this is very useful.
