    The post I replied to mentioned that they were using a Roamio OTA. I assumed they were using OTA which will work for PIP on a TV that supports it.

    yes, I just asked tivo via support for this. both single PIP like the old days and TILE MODE for 4 or 6 tuner tiles. This is great for sports watchers. Right now I end up watching NHL on the computer on streams and the tivo for baseball, etc.

    Four / six tiles would be awsome.

    I do like pip on my tv. I use a mini to drive a second input for pip. Pretty simple solution.

    I’ve had pip on a couple of DVRs and they tended to be clumsy to use (easier to use my tv pip) but it is still a great feature.

    Don't we have PIP using the right button while we're watching TV on TiVo? You can see the action on any of your Tuners and switch to it if you like.

    I don’t follow. That doesn’t do anything but show the info textbox.

    Oh yes you are right it's not a live picture.
    I went from Dish Network to TiVo but I switched to Spectrum TV..The main reason was for dish's Dish Pass which is wishlist on TiVo.
    The rest of TiVo is very disappointing compared to Dish Network. The onepass shouldn't just ask new or new & reruns, it should also give the choice of weekly, Monday through Friday or daily ...like a manual recording does.
    Wishlist folders should be for one passes too, like Dish has. Frankly, I'm very disappointed in Tivo. Not as great as I thought it would be. I wish Echostar Dish Network had taken over TiVo. They have the best DVR Developers.

    Tonight is a perfect example of where I would use it....Patriots/Chiefs and game 2 of the ALCS.
