Question about Hughes HDVR2 with 105 Hrs DirecTV DTV Receiver
I just upgraded my Directv to HD and thus had new HD-DVR's installed. My old DVR's were also from Directv, but they were Tivo.
One of the features of Tivo I used frequently was that you could hit the Live TV button on the remote and switch between the 2 built in tuners. So you could be watching a show on one channel and then hit Pause when it went to a commercial. You could then hit the Live TV button to switch to the other tuner and watch a different channel, and when it went to a commercial hit Pause, and then hit Live TV to switch back to the other channel which would still be paused where you left it, and then you could fast forward through the commericals. So you could easily bounce back and forth between the two tuners. My new Directv DVR doesn't have a Live TV button, and I can't figure out a way to do this, but am hopeful there is a way of doing this since there are essentially 2 tuners in it like my old Tivo, both capable of recording simultaneously.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thx!
I found the manual for that model online, and according to it, the "Live TV" button should function exactly the same way your old Tivo did.
If it's not working correctly, you may want to contact the manufacturer, assuming it's still under warranty.
