When I buy a TV with Picture in Picture (PIP). Comcast says I have to rent their DVR for PIP to be activated. I live in a development that has a contract with Comcast. Which means I pay for Comcast through my home owners assoc. dues.
My question is, do I really have to rent the Comcast DVR.
I have a digital converter and DVD-VCR recorder for recording TV programs I like.

The digital converters only support viewing one channel so that kind of makes sense. However most DVR's also only allow you to view one channel at a time, but record a couple more so that would only help you if you wanted to use two DVR's or a DVR with your converter box. You can also use it with the DVD/VCR and the existing converter box. PIP works with two input devices. FYI, PiP is a useless feature that almost no one uses, you sure you want it?
