    -622 in dual mode
    -TV2 tuner on, and TV2 watching channel 004
    -TV1 tuner on, and TV1 watching channel 116
    -turned off TV1 tuner and TV-LED went out
    -returned to TV1 45 minutes later and turned back on TV1 and TV
    -TV1 was still tuned to channel 116
    -five minutes later, pressed paused, and noticed buffer line was full
    -hit rewind, and TV1 tuner had continued to capture channel 116 while TV1 tuner was off
    -the 45 minutes I was away, while TV1 tuner turned off, was all captured and viewable from the buffer
    -no recordings in progress on either tuner.

    I know if I did this in single-mode, the buffer would be dumped, and no further recording to the buffer would occur.
    With TV2 enabled, I "thought" once the TV1 tuner was turned off, the TV1 buffer would also dump, and recording to the buffer would cease. :confused:

    That is odd. Normally the buffer dumps when turned "off".

    It duplicated...try it.

    -set to dual mode-no recordings in progress
    -turn on TV1 and tune to a channel [dual-mode orange & green LED lit]
    -turn on TV2 and tune to a different channel [orange, green and blue LED lit]
    -turn off TV1 [orange & blue LED lit-green unlit]
    -wait 20-30 minutes
    -turn back on TV1 and check the buffer [orange, green & blue lit]

    Hmmm .... my 622 has been off most of the evening (got home late then got busy on the PC and never turned on the set). I turned on the set first and the receiver was in standby. I turned on the receiver and checked the buffer ... one hour is there.

    TV2 was "on" as my wife was watching earlier and just turned off the set and not the receiver.

    With both TV1 and TV2 off the buffer erased on TV1.

    The behavior seems the same on TV2. As long as TV1 is "on" the TV2 buffer is not dumped.

    I wonder if this was planned?
