Continue recording when changing live tv channels

I had a Tivo w/ 6 tuners. All 6 tuners were always recording whatever channel each happened to be last displayed up to the last 30 minutes. On my Hopper 3, when I do a "recall" to select another of the tuners and select another tuner to watch, once that channel appears it is as if wasn't recording at all because I can't backup at all. If I then change back to the channel I was watching before the switch, again it is as if I hadn't been previously watching this channel and I can't back up to see what I missed in the past few moments. How can I configure the Hopper or use the remote so I can return to a previously viewed channel and I can rewind/back up?

You can only do it with two tuners.

 

Use the input button to swap between the two channels.   You can pause one and change.  When you swap back it will start up where you paused it.

When I record on main TV, it disrupts what my husband is watching on Joey TV in garage. How do I record without it stopping 2nd TV??

Hello lindee_1. I would be happy to take a look at your equipment set up and see what we may need to do to get the main TV to stop interrupting the Joey. Can you send me a Private Message so I can look into that for you? https://communities.dish.com/t5/Communities-101/How-To-Send-a-Private-Message/td-p/15039
