Now that the Fall 2009 Software update is in full swing, it might be a good time to show everyone how to use the DoublePlay feature. What is DoublePlay? DoublePlay is a feature that allows you to buffer Live TV on both the foreground and background tuners at the same time. This has the benefit of allowing you to watch two Live TV program simultaneously by judiciously toggling between the foreground and background tuner. How does it work? To start DoublePlay, you simply press the down arrow button. This is in the center of your DIRECTV remote just under the yellow Select button. You will see the following message: Press the down arrow again to turn DoublePlay on and see: Once you have started DoublePlay, you will have some channel showing on Tuner #1 and some other channel showing on Tuner #2. Pressing the down arrow key on your DIRECTV remote will swap between the two tuners while keeping the Live Buffer intact on both tuners.
