    This may be a dumb question, but I've never used one. I know you can record 2 channels at the same time or watch one while recording the other, but can you watch 2 channels at the same time w/POP. I have a Toshiba 57h81 w/POP and want to be able to split the screen to watch 2 channels at one for football season. Thanks!

    Only the DirecTV/Tivo combo models record 2 channels at once. They have only one output, so PIP/POP won't be able to display 2 things from one Tivo. You have to have a separate source for one of the windows, either another sat receiver or antenna or cable.

    But it's hardly necessary. Just start the 2 games recording, start watching one say a half hour late. Catch up to live on one, switch to the other, repeat. I guess the only real problem is seeing the score from the other game flashed; don't pay too much attention to the score ticker.
