    Mebbe you should consider not trying to use the DVR as a TV. Even when
we still had our Tivos we really didn't do that. We kept around a separate
tuner for that. If you can't wait until the show ends before you start
watching it, you're not going to really benefit that much from a DVR. You
won't be able to skip the commercials much.

Are you checking on what Myth thinks it should be doing. Your rules can
do some weird things and it will shuffle things around. A more precise
rule with a very high priority might help. I am sure the others will
have suggestions too.
