No, the TiVo cannot record two things at the same time. Unless you have a combination DirecTV/TiVo combo box.

You can split your cable before it goes into the TiVo, and run one leg of the split to another input on your TV. That will give you the ability to watch one of the shows live while the other one records on the TiVo. Of course, you could put a VCR or another TiVo on that leg, and then you could record on that leg too.

Your TiVo will record shows for you if your TV is off (that's kinda the point :)). However, if you are using a cable box in conjunction with your TiVo, that does have to stay on.

Good luck!
