Question about Televison & Video
Turning tv off
Posted by Anonymous on
You did not specify if you are using a DVR capable cable/satellite box, which I what I presume is the case.That DVR has two tuners in it - each tuner allowing you to watch and/or record two programs at one time and in any combination.If both of those tuners are used for recording then you cannot watch another "live" stream as there no available tuners to tune and display (or stream to the DVR hard drive for recording). You can only switch between the two recording programs.
As a side note, if your TV has a built-in tuner, you can split the cable and have one going to the DVR and the second run going to the TV set. You can then use the TV's built in tuner and watch what anything it can get. It won't get scrambled digital cable but will get analog and Clear QAM channels.
