But, on the few times that this happens, you can just set the HR-24 to record the show that you want to watch live, which will allow you to essentially "steal" one of the HR-24 tuners to watch that live show on whatever TV you want.

That could work. :up: Since I've already got the boxes, though, by going WHDVR and use an H (or HR) client, I don't have to deal with it.

For new installations, though, any perceived benefit of that approach should be weighed against the upfront cost difference between a C31 and an H25, e.g., and the inability to pause LIVE TV with an HD-only box.

If that H box is on Whole Home could you not just be recording that program on a HR box and pause live TV that way?

This is a work-a-round, that works, but "what if" someone walks into the room and starts drowning out the TV?

Option 1: You scream at them, but miss the dialog.
Option 2: you hit pause and "politely" tell them to go....(:lol:) and then rewind.
