HR 34 flushes buffer overnight

One theory suggests it has to do with energy savings, not buffering while no one is watching.
With 5 available tuners, the easy workaround is to set a manual recording for the 5 channels you are likely to watch, starting 90 minutes before you wake up and ending after you are likely to go to work. Set it to keep only 1 recording, and it won't clog your hard drive.

The only other quirk we're experiencing is that trickplay on our connected HR 20 requires a bit of getting used to a short but significant delay from key press to response, but the issue is minor and is a small price to pay to have a unified playlist from 3 TB of storage!

I've had the HR 34 Genie for about a month and love it so far, with the exception of one quirk. When we turn it on after it's been off overnight it comes up "live" on the channel we left it on, with no trailing buffer. Our HR 20 would trail a 90 minute buffer even after we turned it off. I've turned off power saving, tried leaving it on always, no joy. Is this a characteristic of this DVR, or am I overlooking something?
Have you enabled Genie suggests?
