    1. No. You can only watch what is being recorded, or things you have previously recorded.

    2. No. One tuner = one channel

    3. Roughly 30 hours. The recorded menu will tell you aproximatly how many hours recording time you have left. (I've never filled mine up on a year).

    4. Yes, While recording, you can playback anything already recorded.

    Dish is working on a dual-tuner machine called the 701 that takes 2 coax feeds from your dish, but you can record one station and watch any other.

    I think you will love your PVR. Of all my HT toys, this is the only one I have ever heard my wife brag about to other people.
