Default Autotune?

Is there any way to have the HR44-200 reciever auto-tune to a channel so you don't forget to change channels?

It;s been requested by a few people for years but it's never going to happen. No DVR has ever had that feature, you just have to set it to record the show.

That would be a good idea to make one. Yet, you have to start your own cable company or talk with the big wigs at cable companies to see if they would like your dvr. So, programing one to do it would be easy compared to selling one to a cable company(ies). Yet, if you could do that then you can make a good amount of money off of it.

OK. This is weird. The other day I find out there is a power saver option now where you can leave the Genie on all the time now not just the 4 hours. Now the weird part. Remember the VCR Plus remote? Just today I found mine, and I know it won't work on my genie to change the channels but contact a remote company and see if they might have a remote that will or maybe they will mfg. one now. Or if you're not going to be around, just leave it on with your channel on and I think you have like 1 1/2 hours of buffer to catch your show when you get home.
