There is video (with subtitles) on the atomic we page http://www.atomicsnowboarding.com/index.php?id=poacher called poacher TV. A bunch of guys go out for an overnight tour with the atomic poacher (they even do a beacon check in the beginning) and they go over (briefly) the split function. There is also a pdf manual on their web page that explains the transition.

I recently bought the Poacher 164 and have used it a couple of times. Hopefully I can help some people out with info. Here's some pro's and con's I've found so far. Pro's -lightweight and nimble going up -using the "ski tip tails" as tips makes the board track well -bindings are comfortable -plenty of stance options -skins (included) are full length and attach at both ends so there's no peeling Con's -can't use my normal freeride bindings and highbacks don't fold down -rides shorter than a 164 -crampon tool does the job but is clumsy -I ride agressively and I'm not sure if this board has the stiffness I like (it's early days yet)
These are just a few things I've noticed. Hope this helps.
