Your wife needs to change her surfing habits. There
is no getting around the fact that the ringbuffer has
to be deleted and the new one has to be created.
You have two choices - Guide mode or Browse mode.
I'm pretty comfortable with either, my wife has
started leaning towards the guide. What
would be nice in the guide mode is if you could
enter the channel number in and jump right to
that point in the guide.
