    I have not had any luck finding out if this is possible. The Tivo support desk said satellite boxes are not supported since you cannot split a signal going into the reciever. Does anyone have a work around for this?

    I hate not being able to change channels and watch something else during a recording. Also, if you are watching something live and a season pass show kicks in, you have to kill the recording to go back to your original program. I appreciate any help.

    Sure, either two satellite boxes or one satellite box that has two tuners.

    Or just stop the whole live TV thing. If you watch everything from Now Playing, your problems vanish.
