Watching two NFL games

I am new to Dish and new to Hopper.  

 

I have a Hopper 3 and this is my first weekend to try to watch the NFL.  Here is my normal use case:

 

- record the two in market games that are shown at the same time (one on Fox and one on CBS).  

 

- let the games record for awhile without watching

 

- watch game #1 for about 10 minutes

 

- switch to game #2 and watch until I catch up to game #1

 

- keep repeating 

 

I can't seem to figure out how to switch back and forth between recorded shows and return to the show where I left off.  With DirectTV the previous button on the remote would do this automatically.  Is there a similar feature with the Hopper 3?  I have the 54.0 remote.

Try pressing the input button. The remote does have to be in Sat mode, so just make sure you press the say button first.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I just tried this and it switches between the last recording (i.e. resume last recording) and the last live channel I was on.  

 

What I want is to switch between two recordings.

If you bring up PIP, it should be whatever those two screens are on.
