Hi all!

Any progress with this feature? Is there any checklist available for 
this? I would have some whishes that i think are pretty practical. Maybe 
someone has more ideas that i have forgot..

  * Option to choose between RAM / HDD
  * Option to pick the amount of memory / HDD to use
  * Option to warn if you switch channel and you are watching the buffer 
(eg. "You are watching from the buffer. Changing channel will delete the 
current buffer")
  * Being able to rewind just by hitting the back/rewind button without 
pressing Ok or something else first.
  * When watching the livebuffer, and you notice that you want to save 
the curent progarm, you should be able to save the tv-program from 
either the beginning of the buffer, or then if the buffer is longer, 
from the beginning of where the program started. This way you will be 
able to save the whole progra (movie etc.)
  * Option to keep X amounts of HDD-buffers after changing channels. 
Then in the recording meny would be an entry where you could watch these 
buffers, and possibly save them as a recording afterwards.

Best Regards,
