When I only had my HDDirecTivo and Sunday Ticket I would switch back and
forth with the dual live buffers, but since adding mythtv last year I now
record each game that I want to see (and go for a bike ride/ski). 3 local
OTA + SNF on the mythbox and 2-3 out of market on the Tivo. Then I zip
through each one individually in under 90 minutes (snap-tackle-skip,
snap-tackle-skip). The hardest thing is avoiding other sources of sports
scores until I am done watching 6-7 games by midnight Sunday. But I am
getting my $uperfan money's worth!
