    I have a friend with the VIP722 rec. The problem they are having is they want to watch one channel live while they reord another channel. Like record Letterman watch Leno at the same time, same tv. I know directv, but have not used dishnet for along time so I am not sure how this works. Thanks for help in advance.

    The 722 which you reference in your post has 2 sat tuners and 1 OTA tuner. You can watch 1 of them live and record on 1 or both of the others. You can record on all 3 and watch a recorded program.

    The 722K which you mention in the subject has 2 sat tuners and if the subscribers ordered the OTA module that will give 2 OTA tuners. Record up to 4 tuners while watching a recorded program or record up to 3 tuners while watching 1 live program.

    Supplementing above...

    Only in single mode do you have the ability to use 3 (or 4 for the K model) tuners on the same TV.

    IF in dual mode, then each TV gets one of the SAT tuners. A K model has access to OTA from both TVs, while a 722 (non-K) only has access to OTA if being recorded.
