My kids are not with me 100% of the time.  When they come over,
especially late in the evening, they often go to their rooms and watch
TV, play video games, whatever.  At this point, I don't imagine that
they will want to watch pre-recorded stuff, but I could be wrong.

You may very well be wrong. We are a blended family and the kids aren't all here all the time. We have mythtv and they generally only watch pre-recorded, DVD, or ripped movies. 

They have become more discerning, ie they watch the crap they want to watch, not the crap the network is showing at that time.


I understand that.  That's exactly what I was thinking might happen.  I currently don't allow them to schedule stuff on the DVR because it gets full quickly enough and there are already conflicts.

Once I have a huge storage solution and a bunch of tuners, that won't be a problem anymore... so they might start scheduling stuff and stop watching live TV.  They don't have a DVR at their mom's house, so they haven't become addicted to the ability to skip the commercials like I have. :)
