I just posted about some 721 problems, but also have a question. I've tried setting it to record 2 channels at the same time. I accept the defaults of start-1-min-early and end-3-min-late. Then I sit back to watch what happens. It gets to 1 min prior to both start times, and it flashes a warning box that the main tuner is in use, and must be released to record both other shows.
I then do nothing, because what I really care about it what happens when I have 2 timers like this set when I'm out of town. Apparently what happens is that after a few minutes, it finally goes ahead on it's own and grabs both tuners, changes them to the channels, and records. But by the time all that happens, it misses the first minute on one of the shows (even though I'd had the 1-min early options selected).
Is there any way around this? I tried 2 timers starting 2 minutes prior to the start time, which helps, but then the programs show up in the PVR list with the wrong name (it lists the name of the prior show which was ending...)
Thanks for any help,
