I have PTAT engaged on 1 of 2 Hoppers. I have 2 Joeys connected to this Hopper. When I turn on the Hopper to watch TV, even if I chose the tuner with PTAT programming being recorded, The Hopper is still using a second tuner. If I change the channel it will open the third tuner leaving no tuners available for the Joeys. The tuner screen (red button) shows 2 tuners in use by the Family Room Hopper. Why is this happening? If I change channels on the Hopper it should use the existing tuner already in use. It should not make a tuner unavailable for a Joey to use just because I changed channels. Also if I am watching off of the PTAT tuner it should make 2 tuners available for the Joeys. Is this proper operation? My other Hopper with PTAT not engaged will also show 2 tuners in use under the the Living room Hopper on the tuner screen. How can I be watching 2 programs on 1 TV? Is this DLB?(Dual Live Buffers). Do I need a third Hopper? How much more is that going to cost. I'm sorry for the rant but this is frustrating. I already paid $200 for this "upgrade". I think I want my VIP 722,622,612 system back. I miss my OTA and extra Satellite tuners. The way this is working makes no sense. The Joeys are really taking the back seat in control. This is not the way the system was advertised. I don't see any settings to fix this. This is a 2 Hopper 3 Joey system by the way.
