Um,huh? You mean why can you move to the c41 and change to the same channel and see the buffer that was n the 44 you just left? Actually, when you do that, you aren't really changing channels in that case, you are changing tuners,as it knows that channel is already tuned to on another tuner and just switches tuners so its sharing the tuner with multiple clients and there by leaves the other tuners free for other things. Makes it easier for the genie to do more things at once by optimizing tuner usage.

Yes! And I understand that. But what I'm wondering is why that buffer usually doesn't reveal itself on the C41 if I switch tuners (Doubleplay's down btn) to get to it- even if I hit down twice and flip between tuners on the C41, when one or both of those tuners were just tuned on the HR44. The buffer only seems to reveals itself (long green line) if I Channel Change or Quick Tune to it on the C41. Does that make sense? This is a difficult question to ask.
So assuming I leave the HR44 and C41 on all the time, and I was watching CNN and double-tuned to TWC on the 44, then moved to the C41 that was on, say ABC and I push the down button which happens to take me to CNN. The buffer is not there. BUT if I hit 2-0-4 to get to CNN (or Quicktune to CNN), only then do I access the buffer. It'd be nice to see those buffers instantly and/or by just hitting the down btn on the C41.
EDITED MORE: so you turn on the TV at the C41 and its at either CNN or TWC and you think, "shucks, there's no buffers this time" BUT then you start changing channels and GO BACK to either CNN or TWC and Voila!, there are buffers there.
