You should be able to. I have a DVR, granted it's a cable DVR, but I can watch something while taping. I can also tape two things at once. Can't tape three things though. And can't watch something while taping two things, I need to watch one of the thigns that's taping.
Just realized that I keep saying taping. How sad is that? Yes I do have a DVD and yes I do live in the 2000s. I don't know why I even said that. Just replace taping with recording in your mind.
9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
I went with the built in Cable version from COX when I moved out to AZ. It has been great!
Can record two shows while watching a third. Been a boon to our life as we aren't having to worry about missing Heroes, CSI, etc where we had to make sure we were home in TN since we didn't splurge on the cost of it all there.
