Not recording the buffered portion is very irritating, but I've found that it's just one of several downgrades with the X1 box:
1. As mentioned above, can no longer record back to the beginning of a show.
2. Can no longer frame by frame slow motion.
3. Can no longer have multiple named Favorite Channel lists.
4. Can no longer set show reminders.
5. Watchlist is no longer available.
6. Can no longer add an external hard drive
7. Not sure if this one is just my own learning issue, but "new releases" no longer means "new releases". Instead, it now means newly added. If I want to check new movie releases, it's very frustrating to sort through a bunch of 30-year-old movies.
