I just bought a Toshiba RDXV59DTKB2 HDD and DVD video cassette recorder and in the advertising blurb it said that I can watch one program and record a different one. I just cannot do this. The Toshiba user manual does not even seem to mention it, despite their advertisements saying that this is possible. Can someone tell me, in layman’s terms please, how I can record one channel whilst watching a different one using the Toshiba RDXV59DTKB2 HDD and DVD video cassette recorder. There seems to be no point in recording a program that I am already watching.
You could tune the TV tuner to a different channel while the recorder’s tuner is recorded to the one you want to tape…
