OK, after 7 years with a Series2, which I still use and love, I have finally gotten a premiere, so I can still watch TV while my now teenage sons watch whatever cr&p they recorded or record more of it. Question--can I watch live TV while recording on another channel? I had assumed so, but now that I look at everything, it always says "record 2 shows while watching a previously recorded show". It never really says I can. I have combed through the forums, and not found it explicitly. Thanks in advance, sorry for asking a question that has no doubt been asked many times before.
On another note, I pulled out about 3 miles of cables and connectors I no longer need from behind my entertainment center, that were hooking up all the various paths between TV, Tivo and home theater, so I could still watch TV (some channels) while something was recording, or watch live TV in HD for football games and such. That was a fantastic feeling!
Thanks, seemed like that should be the case. I guess I would have found out when I set it up, but I still have Comcast to deal with this Saturday. They came out today, only to realize they didn't bring the cable card with them. I am really looking forward to the upgrade.
