1. I have TV2 output going into slingbox so my parents can watch specific channel they don't get in cable. Problem is that TV2 is only controlled via RF remote rendering this setup useless. How can TV2 be controlled by IR instead of RF and TV1 by RF instead of IR?

2. I used preferences to disable the screen saver, but this does not seem to work... given #1 above, my parents can't send a "press select to watch tv" through the slingbox. Is there a way to remove the screen saver?

3. When I turn on the TV if there is some show or even the news that I want to record to disk. How do I tell the DVR to record whatever is in the buffer and until end of show? The options only let me do this if the buffer happens to have the beginning of the program (ir record entire show). I could do this easily with the Tivo.

Thanks to all.

1. Switch the slingbox to tv1 and watch tv2. You won't have HD.

2. Set the screen saver to max time. It doesn't seem to turn off.

3. If the dvr is in sleep mode (screen save on) then it's putting video in the buffer. Nothing to record. When it's on just hit the record button and follow the directions.
