Ask Dbstalk:possible Bug, View While Recording

I beleive this is a bug. A simple work around is to hit the previous channel button. This will return you to the live program you were watching. When you are ready to view the recorded program again, press the DVR button, select the recording, and select resume. This will pick you up where you left off.

...Shouldn't there be a way to stop watching a recorded program from the beginning while still in the recording mode, without ending the recording?
Yep. Just hit fast forward till the screen says 'Live' and you are free to navigate again. I do this all the time instead of hitting the Stop button which, of course, kills the recording in progress.

In the meantime, another easy workaround is when you are watching the show that is being recorded that you can't get out of, press Channel Up or Channel Down twice. That will switch tuners, and then you'll be able to tune back to your first channel.

I had an OTA timer fire correctly. During that time I was watching a DVR event (happens to also be same channel). WHen I finished watching DVR event before it fully stopped on its own, I pressed "stop".
Well the TIMER stopped!! I then switched to it & press manual record. HOWEVER, I could no longer use any DVR event to view. It kept displaying the must be in live mode pop up!?!?!? I could not switch to any sat channel or DVR event w\o stopping the recording.
