Just switched back from Comcast to Dish, I'm finding it a very refreshing experience.

Thanks in advance for any answers, I tried search but came up empty.

I was told by the installer that you can't record and/or watch two HD shows at the same time, but many times tonight I have been recording one show and watching another, both HD.

I have the 622 in Single Mode currently.

Is it supposed to be able to record two HD feeds at the same time?

Yes you can record two HD streams at a time while watching a previously recorded HD program. Infact, if you have OTA connected you can watch 3 HD streams (2 Dish HD, 1 OTA) while watching a recorded HD program. Link below contains a link that discuss the various things you can do in terms of how many streams you can record plus other most asked type threads. You get you going.

Yes. The installer is wrong.
You can record 2 HD shows with no problem, and watch a recorded one as well at the same time.
Some people just don't know what they're talking about!

Coming from D* and the HD DirecTivo, that totally got me confused for a few minutes until I screamed out "COOL!". The HD DirecTivo only allows for 2 simultaneous recordings, either 2 Dish, 2 OTA, or one of each. When I saw my 622 record two programs (one OTA one Dish), and I was still able to surf around different channels, I said "oh crap, I just killed one of my recordings!" Then I found out I can do this, and that was like the coolest discovery!
