Does "doubleplay" work same on Genie as 2 tuner DVR's? (Or is it now "fiveplay")

I'm about to be taking installation of a new HR-34 Genie DVR to replace my HR-24.

I'm a heavy user of the doubleplay function that allows me to pause two live channels at the same time, toggling between the two using the arrow down key. I'm curious how this works with Genie. For example, with 5 tuners, is it possible to pause 5 live channels at once?

It works the same. You only go back and forth between 2 tuners.
