    The shows will have the (R) indication when I look at the guide, but then they don't record. Nothing else is recording or being watched at the same time.

Make sure u have signal on both tuners on the DVR ( check it in your set-up screen). both tuners should have the same siganl strength. Directv's DVRs, if installed correctly, give u the option of recording one channel and watch another, or recording 2 seperate channels( 2 tuners). If you are recording 2 seperate shows and u change the channel one of your recordings will cancel .

You can get single DVR receivers that operate 1 TV. It allows you to record and still watch a different channel while the recording is occurring. You could have 2 separate receivers, one at each TV location but you would incur an additional $10 per month charge for the extra receiver. You can call 1-800-333-3474 if you'd like more information.
