Switching Recording Between TV1 to TV2soccer
Posted 02 August 2009 - 01:04 AM
Example, wife wants to watch "Can you Duet" on CMT and record it at the same time. I want to record "X-Games" on ESPN. CMT is TV1 and ESPN is TV2 (as it relates to recording). Now the wife decides to go out for the night so she will watch her show later (since it is recording). I am left home and want to watch ESPN (and I still want to record it) How do I switch CMT to record on TV2 and ESPN on TV1 (so I can watch/record my program at same time)
*before it is asked, I haven't installed the wiring for "TV2" so I cannot go to second TV to watch what I want yet

Even after you hook up TV-2 and put it back in Dual Mode, you can still do this to swap recording tuners, then put it back in Dual mode. Hope this makes sense.

However, Chainblu's suggestion would allow you to stop the recording and flip between channels.

If you don't have a TV2 hooked up yet, there is no reason to be running in Dual mode. Switch to Single mode and you can Swap tuners as desired or use PiP. When you get TV2 hooked up you can switch back to Dual mode. The change is just a button press on the front panel.
