Over the last while I've noticed recording conflicts on the HR44. For whatever reason it's not using all 5 tuners it's only using 4. At first I thought it was because of the buffer I have set on all my shows but it's never been an issue before. So I then did a test and started recording 5 shows and when I hit record in the 5 show I got a message asking if I wanted to use the live tv tuner and record the 5 show. I said yes and it works fine. I hope they are not saving a tuner for live tv now.
