I'm planning to get HDTV soon and I'm also thinking about switching to DISH from DTV. I read user guide for 622 and I still don't get it :confused:

Can I record 2 different shows at the same time and watch 2 different recorded shows on two different TVs?

If I have OTA, can I record 3 different shows and watch 2 different recorded shows on two different TVs?

Thank you very much.

Confused:lol:

Why are you confused everything here is correct, record 2 sat show & 1 OTA ATSC channel. Then playback 2 diff ones at the same time. That is exactly what it will do.

The caviet on the 3 shows is that one must be from the OTA and the other two from Dish.

This is a great Dish feature, and as you have seen, you are correct.

I have only once actually done this, but boy was I glad when it did. I have a couple of times during the week where I have two network shows on at the same time that I want to record. One time there was a special on that I wanted to record for the kids on a third network at the same time. So I was recording the special on the OTA, and I was recording the other two networks on the two sat tuners.

At the same time I was watching a recording on my TV downstairs, while my daughter was upstairs watching another recording. I remember sitting there with my fingers crossed, expecting the receiver to choke at any moment. It didn't, and it handled it all very well. Pretty amazing actually, considering it is all one hard drive. They have some amazing queueing going on there.
