well, in my case, it was because I caught it 30 minutes in. Since I was
flipping channels, I didn't have it in the buffer or anything. It seems like
a rare case, as I don't think many people do the live TV browse anymore,
but I thought I'd see.

It would be cool to optionally have the scheduling screen pop up when

Yeah, that would be a nice way to do it. Either have it be configurable in
options, or have both types of recording be seperate buttons, and the user
can pick which they want to have on the remote.
