Yes it absolutely is, but then your Tivo won't know what channel you're on. While not a big deal if you were surfing with the cable remote and decided to manually record somthing it would be named incorrectly in the Now Playing list.

I thought I would be able to watch one live while recoring the other. Now I know this can't be done.

what are the thumbs up/thumbs down buttons? i can't figure out what these do.
With the right kind of setup you can watch something live while your Tivo records something else. I do this all the time. My TV has multiple inputs. I have cable going straight into the TV, and Tivo on my S-video connection. So when there are 2 things on at the same time I watch one program live while Tivo records the other channel.

Thumbs up/down is to rate shows. If you have suggestions on your Tivo will record show for you based off the thumb ratings.
