I have been with D* for the last 9 years and moving back to E* with the Hopper/Joey platform. I have been searching these boards and others to understand the changes, but I haven't seen anything regarding live buffers. Any knowledge out there?

What is the question? There appears to be one hour live buffers on each tuner that is not in use for recording. That matches what is on the 622. If a timer event is recording one can rewind back to the beginning of the event regardless of how far back it started.

Thanks James. I have no current knowledge of E* receivers as it has been 9 years since I was with them - I just know that I have been spoiled with the ability to toggle between two active programs.

You can do that on any of DISH's two tuner receivers (in single mode) and the Hoppers (not Joeys).
