I guess its a crummy cpu as that model / motorola circuitry always seems to go whacky.
Often I'll be recording one channel and if I dare try and watch somthing else I get the old "do you want to stop recording this...." As if the box thinks I'm recording two channels.
The only solution I have found is to open the guide, select the channel I want to watch , record it and then watch it from "My DVR" selections.
Im open to new ideas. As far as "Swap" to the best of my knowlage I have no pip featyre. I mean the buttons are on the remote but they do not do anytghing
thanks in advance for any help and "your welcome" in advance if anyone uses my solution"
