What's the difference between Single and Dual Mode?
Your dual-tuner satellite receiver lets you watch programming on two separate TVs. The way this programming is delivered changes depending on whether the receiver is set to Single or Dual Mode.
In Single Mode, you can use features like Picture-In-Picture (PIP) and you can watch one live program while recording another. With Shared View enabled, all connected TVs can receive the same programming at the same time.
In Dual Mode, you can watch different programming on two separate TVs. In each location you can record a live program and watch a pre-recorded program at the same time. (Note: Picture-In-Picture is not available while in Dual Mode)
To find out which mode you're in, check the Mode indicator on the front panel of your receiver. Your menus and other screens will also indicate which mode you're in (as shown below).
