Multiple TIVO Scheduling Control

I have 2 tivo's currently (Will be 3 once the new HDs come out) and would love for them to "talk" to each other to resolve recording conflicts.

Currently I have about 12 season passes on each tivo. If there was a conflict for some reason the tivo in question would contact the other tivo on the network and schedule the program to record if the second tivo was free at that time.

I can think of several ways this could work. So the infinitely smarter people at TIVO should be able to do me one better.

This has been on my mind for as long as I have had multiple Tivo's and the HMO. I actually couldn't believe it wasn't included from the begining. Would have taken some of the strain off of them to develop a dual tuner Tivo.

Just my .02 cents.

Yep this would be a very cool thing.

As you might imagine it is also a very popular suggestion.
I know some of the many ways it might work have been discussed at length here, along with downsides or gotchas of each approach.

Yeah, cooperative scheduling would be very nice. It sounded like TiVo was working on it a couple of years ago, but then nothing came of it.
