Yes, so I have been using the advanced settings all along. The recording defaults I was used to were from my Tivo You have defaults that you set such as the one channel or all, number of shows to save, padding etc. This makes setting a record a one button click unless you wanted to change one of those defaults.
No problem, though. I am very happy with what I have experienced so far. The channel reception is actually better than it has been with the HDHR Extend.
