    I was reading up on the scientific atlanta hd box used for many cable companies and it says it allows a dual tuner split screen pip function. Does the box split the screen or does your tv have to have a pip function? And if so can you watch two hd shows side by side?

    I have the 8300D, which is the PVR version from SA, and you cannot watch side by side. It only puts up a small PIP screen onto the regular one. The SA 4200D is the non-PVR and may differ, but I doubt it...

    And it's the box that splits the screen, you don't need PIP on your TV.
