Wally Recording as DVR

I have recently added a 1TB external drive and activated the DVR feature with my Wally.  I can't view a program on one channel while recording a program at the same time on another.  Is this correct operation?

Thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns. The external hard drive has to be added to the Hopper, since that is where the hard-drive is located.

That isn't quite right, Kimberly. You can put an external hard drive on a wally just fine, but because the wally only had a single tuner (the EHD does not add any) you can only do one live TV "thing" at a time, meaning record or watch live TV.

You could still record one thing and watch a recording or Netflix though

I have a Wally with an external drive.  I am able to record one program while watching a different via the tuner (live).
