Recording while watching another program

Hi,

Last night I wanted to record something and watch another program which was live on another channel at the same time. I got a prompt to change the channel to the one which was being recorded or stop the recording.
I was wondering if this is normal for the Tivo box as i was under the impression that i can record 2 and watch another one at the same time.
Thank you for your help. Iam very new to the Tivo box.

Hi you are quite right, I think if you had just changed the channel, obayed the box then you should have been able to go to the live programme you wanted to watch. The only time this won't apply is if you record 3 things simultaneously it must stay on one of the channels that is recording, you can watch an already recorded programme while the tivo happily records the 3 things.

hmm.. that should only happen if its trying to record 3 things. might be worth having a look back to see if it was recording something you were not aware of.

Re: Recording while watching another program

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to respond! I have checked and as it turns out Tivo was recording things based on my key words/actors at the same time which i didnt realise. That would explain it.

Thank you both.
