I've read the the 721 will allow you to record 2 programs while you watch a 3rd, which sounds like a very cool feature! Some questions:

- Has anyone tried this? If so, does it work as advertised?

- Does the 3rd program (the one you're watching) have to be a playback of a previous recorded program, or can you watch a live program?

TIA, Bill

Have you actually tried this motjes2, and did it work OK?

I'm a big movie fan! My idea of movie paradise is if Saturday night at 8:00 pm, I can tape 2 new movies while watching a recording I've made earlier of a 3rd movie. From your post motjes2, it sounds like this can be done, although I'm wondering if anyone has actually tested the capability? :confused:

Thanks, Bill

I do it very often, rarely watch anything live now, if I do I start hitting the skip forward to try and get past commercials. All it needs now is automatic skip forward to get through the boring parts of movies, so that I can watch them faster...
I seem to have soooo much to watch on my hardrive and so little time to watch anything
