    Weight overheating.

    I have a small entertainment center and a vip722. I have maybe an inch on each side for air and that's about it. If it's on for a while the top of it gets pretty hot. My only other option is to sit my 42in tv on top of it but it weights 70 pounds. The edge of the tv base would hang over a bit...

    Recording with 612

    Can you record three shows at once using vip612. Recording two with the dual tuners and one over the attenna? Can you also record one over attenna one over one tuner while watching another? How is the vip612 different then the vip722 in single mode other then less recording time and PIP.
