Is there a possibility that the live Dual Buffer capability is going to be coming out in an upcoming software update? To me, not having this capability was the biggest disappointment in upgrading to the HR20. I'm hoping that all of this discussion about live Dual Buffers means this capability will soon be included in an update.

Yes, there is a possibility. There's also a possibility that it will never be added. However, if I had to put money on it, I'd bet that we'll see it, but only after the HR20 is a very stable box and all the recording/gui problems are worked out.

Until then, I'm waiting patiently (well, sort of). :lol:

I would like a menu option for one single 90min buffer or two 30min buffers. This way I can change it from time to time to suit my viewing needs.
