    All;

    I searched the threads and couldnt find anything, so I aplogize in advance if this question has been asked and answered.

    Does the DTV powered DVR have the ability to switch between tuners?

    It does NOT have dual live buffers, like the DirecTivos. There are work-arounds, but they do not work nearly as well as on the DTivos.

    Dual Buffers (Thank you to mtnagel at dbstalk.com)
    Problems - The HR20 has two tuners but not TiVo's software to let you watch and pause two shows at one time.
    Workaround – Go to the first program and press ® RECORD. Go to the second program and press ® RECORD.
    Press LIST & PLAY the 1st recording. Press Il . Press LIST & PLAY the 2nd recording. Press II PAUSE.
    Repeat these steps below to go back and forth between the programs:
    Press ll PAUSE  BACK . Highlight the other show & click Play.
    Press LIST then – DASH twice to delete each entry when you are done.
