I get the humor, but in all seriousness, I use the dual live buffers feature quite frequently. It is one of my most "treasured" DVR features. That, and 30 second skip We watch a lot of Live TV in addition to recorded shows. For example, Saturday afternoon college football - I don't necessarily want to record the games that are on, but I might want to be bouncing between two of them to see how they are going. Or, perhaps one of the kids is watching something live, and I want to check the local weather report or sportscenter ticker, or what have you. I just ask them to pause what they are watching, I flip the tuner, and 2 minutes later I am done, flip the tuner back, and hand back the remote. This habit of flipping tuners has become quite ingrained ever since my first DirecTIVO box in 2003.
