I would like TIVO to offer picture in a picture feature.
NOT WITH TWO TUNERS!
I would love to freeze a recorded show and watch live TV as it is being recorded by TIVO. and then swith back to the taped show.
Or Watch a recorded live TV show and freeze a PIP of what is on the current TV channel and view the TIVO menu.
New TV do this feature with the aid of two tuners.

I think it would only be a minor software change. TIVO remote has the PIP button on it.

Most of what you asked can already be done by any current tivo.
You do need a TV capable of multipule inputs or a VCR in the mix but thats it.

The only thing that cannot be done is recording 2 live shows and switching back and forth on them.

I'm thinking what cartoon kid is getting at is the Tivo unit doing the PIP with a TV that doesn't have PIP capabilities. I too would like this feature if possible. On to Tivo suggestions...!

It sad that they include the 'window' button on the remote but they really can't do it. It would be nice to have the window be a mariad of things such as recordings, live tv, or guide and some other video. Perhaps this feature is close at hand.

There could be an off chance new video decoder chips could do PIP.

At a minimum it would be nice to have live tv remain while in the Tivo menu. Easily done with PIP--make it small in the corner, and then you can access the menus to, e.g., set up recordings, read messages, and so on. No need for a second tuner.
