    Hello,

    I have the following DTV receivers:

    HD-DVR DIRECTV HR20-700
    HD DIRECTV H21-200
    Standard DIRECTV D12-300
    Standard DIRECTV D12-100
    Standard DIRECTV D12-100
    HD-DVR DIRECTV HR21-100

    I'm not able to watch live TV while recording a program at the same time with the HR21-100. This is a new receiver that we began using in July. The HR20-700 has always been able to record and watch live TV at the same time since we started with DTV in Jan. 2010. I have a Slimline dish with a SWiM (not sure what exactly it means or how it all works). Anybody know why I can't record and watch live TV with the HR21-100? I receive a message stating: "In order to tune to ---, you must stopone of the activities below> Stop Recording or Cancel Request." Is it not possible with two HD-DVR receivers? Any help would be grateful.

    Rerun the satellite setup on that receiver and make sure you have both of the following selected:
    • the correct swm lnb type
    • dual tuner mode selected (you probably only have single tuner selected)

    Thanks. Please explain what you mean by rerun satellite setup. Does this mean I need to reset under system setup?
