Why is it, I can record off of my DVR, however if I want to watch another channel while one is recording, it stops the recording. If I wanted to watch it right there and then, I wouldn’t need to record it. I have to do all of my recordings AFTER we go to bed so that my husband can watch his shows that he normally watches.
This depends on which receiver you have. You’ll be relegated to how many tuners you have, and if you have a duo receiver, which tv you’re watching from. It will all depend on how many tuners you have. For instance, if you had the Hopper 3, you would have 16 tuners. That means you can watch and record between 16 different items. The Hopper has 3, so you’d be able to record and watch 3 different things.
