    Can anyone tell me if there is a satellite receiver (preferably Sony) that offers picture in picture (record 2 programs or watch one live program while recording another) and dolby digital 5.1

    I was told Tivo offers the dual recording but, I think there is confusion and really what Tivo can do is let you record a program and watch a previously recorded program on the hard drive (not a live show).

    I am sure Ultimate TV offers the recording ability but I am certain about Dolby digital.

    Last question: Do any Sat recording receivers come in high definition

    I hope this is the correct forum for this question.

    Thanks for the reply,

    It appears based on poplar opinion and features (assuming you don't want web stuff on your tv) Tivo is the way to go. However, Ultimate TV receivers seem to be cheaper with rebates. I think I will go the Tivo way.
