We've had a PVR since the first Tivos hit the shelves we still use live
tv. We don't *want* to record everything. Sometimes we like to sit
down and discover something new.
When I'm using my Myth box I expect it to perform at LEAST as well as my
Tivo did years ago. What you're proposing is a HUGE step back in
functionality. One of the major features of a PVR is the ability to
rewind live tv.
