That's when I flip to one, hit Record, flip to the next (after 5  
seconds) hit Record, flip to the next (wait 5 seconds) hit Record and  
then go do something else. When they're done, I come back and don't  
have to miss anything.

Not in my house. Not with 6 tuners and 2.5TB of storage, anyway.

Quite honestly, I've spent more time reading this thread than the time  
I've invested into waiting for channels to change in the 3 years I've  
used MythTV.
