Hi Phil

I can change tuners successfully & watch TV on either tuner.

I can also do picture in picture live TV with each tuner displaying a 
different channel

In my experimentation last night & during today, I've discovered that I 
can successfully record a show if I am watching it on live TV & press R. 
It then records it to the end of the show, (or at least the time my 
listing says it finishes)
