I am helping my buddy decide on a new provider and had a few questions I could not answer for him. I believe on dish you can have the "autohop" feature only on shows recorded thru prime time anytime, if you have ptat turned off and you record a network show on your own, will it still have the ability to autohop the next day?? Does dish have something similar to Dtv's 30 second skip feature, and if so what is it??? Can you set up your own guide so you only see the channels you want to see and no others?? With ptat turned off you have 3 tuners max, so if you are watching a show you can record 2 others, is that correct?
