A DirecTV feature I'd like to see


What with Vudu, TiVo, Slingbox and their ilk, there's all manner of technology to move beyond simply turning on your TV and watching whatever happens to be on.

One thing I wish existed is the ability to watch one channel on DirecTV while simultaneously listening to another.

That way I could enjoy the visuals of Smithsonian HD (267) while listening to Sirius Symphony Hall (864).

Other times I'd opt for other combos.

AV mashups all the time, that's what it's all about.

I mean, it can't be that hard to implement — can it?

I'd even pay extra for the feature.

Ken`s suggestion is a good one.

For most, possibly including DirecTV, you can rent a second decoder box for very little - last I heard from my cable provider, about $3/month. Or maybe buy one and use a connection/cable splitter/router for non-encoded channels.

You just need a dual tuner pvr box.
is an example.
