And there are at least 2 free tuners available? UPDATED 12/27: PLEASE SEE UPDATED INFO AT MESSAGE #24 (I believe). Don't understand why when watching 1 recording and 1 live program or 2 live programs and a recording is about to begin I get a "change channel (to what is about to be recorded) or cancel recording" popup message. We have a DVR that is "off" (no TV attached only used as a server in a closet) and 1 mini. The 1 mini is either watching live TV and/or a recording. When a recording is about to begin I get that popup and have to change the channel to what is about to be recorded. I can go back after the change so why do I need to change it? I can understand if all tuners are in use but they aren't since I can switch back after it changes and the scheduled recording begins. What am I missing here?
