My wife was watching a show buffered and accidently changed the channel. Lost buffered show. UltimateTV has a warning that pops up "You Must Go Live Before Changing Channel" then gives you the option to go live. This in my opinion is a must have for the HR20.

I guess after 6 years of DVRing...
I have just gotten used to hitting R when I get more then 5 minutes backwards into the live buffer.

Do not clear Live Buffer when changing channels - keep old-channel content is currently #9 on the HR20 Wish List Survey.

Personally, I do not like this feature, but it ranks high nonetheless.

Sorry - I should have looked at the remote. I use a Harmony, so I forgot about the button lables of the remote that came with the unit.

No need to be sorry, I didn't think of using a remote other than "stock". :)
