    I want to see my full range of cable channels both on the Picture-in-picture small screen and the full screen of the TV. How do I do this with a Premiere box? The cable signals from Comcast have to go through the cable card to be seen, so a splitter before the TIVO will not do the trick. That just gives me channels 1-32.

    My guess is you need a cable box along with your TiVo. The cable box would be connected to a second input on your TV so you have 2 signals.

    You have to await the TiVo mini.

    Thank you, ajwees41, - although I am obviously not happy with the answer, the link you include is right on target.
    In response to the other question, I have a Samsung PN64e8000, and I am talking about the picture-in-picture feature.
