Very basic play and record questions on 5045

#1

Is there any way to play a previously recorded program from the hard drive, or play a dvd, while recording another show to the hard drive?

This seems like a very important feature but I could not figure out how to do it. A standard pvr like used by dish network has no problem doing this.

Also, the issue that the unit has to be off to record from the timer is terrible. A question if have is if I set up three timers in a row such as from 8-9, 9-10, 10-11pm and I have it off for when the first one starts, will it record all three, or do I need to leave a gap between the times?

TIA,

As far as I know NO :frowning:

I have no answer for your timer question (just test it and see) I have my DVD Recorders connected to my DVRs
