    I'm getting ready to purchase a DirectTivo and a Toshiba 50HDX82. I know the DirectTivo can record 2 shows at once, but can I watch 2 shows at once using the PIP. Can someone explain how to hook this up?

    You can't use PIP. Yes there are two tuners but there is only one MPEG decoder. But you can still watch two shows at once though. D-Tivo buffers both tuners for 30 minutes so it is easy to pause one and hit the down arrow to switch to the other. I'll do this when watching the local news. Other than that, I watch very little live TV.
