I also have hand-eye coordination problems.
I use S-video out to connect the 811 to a PVR 250 running Sage TV. My problem is recording/viewing on the 250. I cannot select a channel on the 250, only through the 811. When I had cable, I ran the coax right to the 250 through a splitter, and everything worked fine. Now, no matter what channel I select with Sage, only the channel selected on the 811 will play. All the detailed info for the Sage selected channel comes up, but I still get the picture from the channel on the 811.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
