    I did search for this and judging from what I read it looks like I should be able to set 2 timers to record two different channels at the same time... right?
    Well, it didn't work. I got a conflict msg and had to delete one of them. I even tried programming one, swapped the PIP and then set the other timer, but to no avail.
    Or am I not allowed to record two different channels at the same time?

    Thanks,

    What receiver are you trying to record them on? If it is a 721 it will work. the rest only have one tuner.

    You are allowed to either watch one live show and record another or record two live shows at one time on a 721. The timer conflicts are bugs, I was getting soem phantom one's a few weeks ago. Try a re-boot see if that helps. Remember if you have exsisting timers the hour before that have a finish XX minutes late, and need to then jump to another channel, that will be a conflict.

    Thanks. I'll try the reboot. I generally don't pad the recording since it seems like everything records fine.
    As long as I'm *supposed* to be able to do it, I'm happy. I figure they'll get it figured out eventually.

    Make sure you also check what you have in the the start 1 minute early and end X minutes late options. If you have two programs from, say 7-8 and another from 8 to 9 and all have both options enabled, then you would have a conflict.
