@Cloverleaf...I don't have this capacity on my TV equipment; however, if I did, I wouldn't! Although TV commercials have seemed to get longer over the years, cutting down on actual program minutes, and even more annoying, the pace of today's world annoys me, too. (But, then, I'm old!)
My point is that recording to eliminate something, speeds up something else, and I don't need more speed! I like to relax in front of my TV, not flip through channels, or fast-feed myself.
