Autotune with DLB works great. Its a feature that gets Used every single day in our house. Dvr'ing a show is great for when you aren't home and want to catch it later, or want to record a series. Autotune lets you manipulate your day the way you want, and pausing and going between tuners, makes it much easier, and you miss all the commercials you want. Autotune really comes to play with shows starting at the sametime or that have an overlap. Pause one watch the other, or finish watching one, with the other tuner on the show you want to watch afterwards paused. We have 15 autotune timers. Mainly shows we want to watch IF we are home. I would have to hate to delete those timers and recreate them every single time we went on a vacation, or little family trip.
