On the one button swap, I wasn't referring to PIP. What I meant was that 
failing being able to PIP live with a recording, is there a way to 
switch back and forth from playing a particular recording (full screen) 
and playing a specific live channel with a keystroke. I can do it with a 
lot of menu navigation but it would be nice to be able to hotkey.
