Welcome to DBSTalk! Unfortunately dual live buffering (DLB) is not available on the DirecTV Plus DVR's. Instead you get a 90 minute buffer of the channel you are watching.
There is a workaround though that entails recording one show, switching to the second channel you want to watch, and then selecting the recording show from the PlayList. Then you just Pause before hitting the Prev button to switch between the two shows.
There is talk that DirecTV is getting ready to come out with "something better than DLB", but there is nothing solid as to what that is.
Enjoy your new DVR. The R16 is a very stable unit and there have not been a large number of complaints from their users.
Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.
