Hi, We just dumped our cable provider and got DirecTV. It now appears that we can no longer record one channel while watching another. We have a dual tuner TV (1995 Sony XBR) However, we are also in the market for a good DVR (hard disk, Svideo, two tuners, etc). and wonder if there is a DVR feature(s) that will allow us to regain our ability to watch one channel while recording another (on DirecTV)? At this time wo do not want TIVO. Perhaps we just need to correctly setup our Directv? Or will the DVR help us….? Thanks in advance.
