I believe you're referring to after you have it set up? If so yes at the top it flashes between the two probes I can see individually like you said split down at the bottom. What I was referring to was when setting it up you didn't have to be quick about selecting meat/barbecue as pressing mode switches it back and fourth.
I wonder if there's an ET-733 2.0? With mine I need to be quick or the setting reverts to whatever I just pressed or where it was before. Now, I've own it for about 2 years and this past week was the first time I was able to set it up without the owners manual in front of me. With the setup before last I read that the key button was Setup and then to change meats you either pressed the Hi or Lo button to scroll through them. I remembered that and the rest was easy...finally.
