    Do you mean "dual satellite TUNERS"? As in, record one channel, while watching a live one, like that?

    I don't know, but I'm sure others will. I wonder IF the new Edision OS Mio that Titanium sells can have an outboard USB satellite tuner added, to make a second one?

    If so, at the price of $175 on his site and with free shipping, you'd be well advised to pick one up before he runs out of these initial ones!

    That's awesome, as I finally broke down and bought one from your site last night.

    It might be way overkill in my case, and I hope I can handle all it can do, LOL. I'm very tech-y, BUT starting to get to the age some of these devices are getting more complicated than I want.

    Basically, I want one with a SOLID perfect clock, dvr ability, MUST have file-marking and 30 second skip either way, and an EPG for even sat channels that don't have one would be nice! Multiple tuners is the gravy.

    Once I get what I need and want locked down, I won't be playing with images and all that sort much.

    primestar31,

    I'm "semi techy" if there is such a thing.
    Like you, once I get it to my liking I will probably leave it as is, aside from updates. I will definitely make a back up of the OpenATV 6.2 as Brian suggested.
    All this talk of imaging tends to fog my mind. ;)

    John

    You can setup custom skip time with the 1,4,7 buttons (Back) and 3,6,9 buttons (forward) in recording settings. I do 5 seconds 1,3 and 15 seconds 4,6 and 1 min. 7,9.
