Hi, I'm hoping I can get some tips/pointers on how to set this up. I have a TV that has "picture-in-picture" capability - you can watch one channel whilst have a little corner of the TV showing another channel. Does anyone have any idea how I set this up? Do I need to have 2 signals coming into the TV? Thanks in advance for any and all info. Please feel free to email me directly - bcmchong at hotmail.
You would need 2 sources into the TV. If the TV has a QAM tuner, it could be used as one of the inputs for local SD, local HD, and the music channels by splitting the cable and connecting one to the STB and one to the TV RF input (there are no analog channels on the FiOS system so an older "cable ready" set is of no use). Otherwise you would need 2 STBs and have to deal with the issue of them responding simultaneously to the remote as there are no "alternate" codes for any of the Moto boxes.
Hope that answers your question.
Here is a link to a thread from last year with a creative solution that works (for a few extra bucks per month):
